Report: Streaming and download revenue to reach $9.5B in 2017

Revenues from streaming and download services on mobile and tablet devices will reach $9.5 billion by 2017, up from $4.5 billion this year, according to a new report from Juniper Research. The research company says this will be as a result of the maturation of the market for streaming subscription services and pay-per-title content, which will see new business models develop for smartphone and tablet users. "In order to be truly successful in the future, I think we will see players emerge who are prioritising their customers' preferences; they will do this by utilising cloud technology, allowing consumers to resume playback on different devices, and enabling offline viewing," said report author Sian Rowlands. The top three markets for Mobile TV and Video in terms of revenue will be North America, Western Europe and the Far East & China, whose revenue share combined will represent over 80 per cent of the total.
