03 Jun 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The broadcasting marketplaces have seen certain changes over the past two years, including digitalisation of the free-to-air (FTA) transmission frequencies, digital radio roll-outs and ongoing trials, hotting up of the IPTV market, increased availability of subscription television and more TV viewing on mobile devices. Further increases in high speed broadband penetration rates, the fast-paced growth of tablets and smartphones, as well as novel business models like pay-per-view are projected to drive novel developments in the IPTV sector.  By far the biggest growth in IPTV video entertainment stems from user generated content (UGC) services like YouTube, Facebook, etc. The ABC’s iview will likely be the biggest category, with catch-up TV following after.

There has been a rise in mobile ad spending following increased smartphone and tablet penetration amongst consumers. The increase in Internet advertising comes as Australia’s firms are busy with enhancing their presence online and strive to see domestic sales win over from offshore sales. As per the radio marketplace, so it keeps losing share to other novel media sectors in spite of the fact that its advertising base is on the rise.
