Content is King


Life After Remote Control

The rise of digital media driven by the likes of Netflix, Hulu and Amazon has changed the economics of content distribution. Where media companies were once dependent on traditional networks and movie distributors (and then cable and satellite operators), they now have a viable alternative. Digital delivery has not only provided a direct boost to the bottom line of many content owners, but they’re also getting a lift from the premium being paid by cable companies to keep certain content off the Internet. The revenue of film and television content owners that was paid by cable distributors grew at a compound annual rate of 11.2% to $24.9 billion between 2000 and 2010.[1] If programming costs continue on that trend, media company stocks could show that content is indeed king.
