    Market

     

    Subscription video on demand is a rapidly growing market, estimated to reach $40bn by 2022, with many big-name players entering and looking for content including the likes of Britbox, Disney, Amazon, NBC, Apple.

    At the same time habits are changing as people watch more on-demand content on smaller devices rather than TV screens, opening opportunities for businesses such as Telco’s and transport services to showcase video content to audiences.

    All of which means there is a huge and growing demand for original content with a proven audience, an opportunity that the team believe they are uniquely placed to exploit with a channel discovering and showcasing the best new talent first.

    The Exit

     

    Comedy Crowd TV aims to be the home for discovering new comedy talent, generating regular, exciting new content. The plan is to grow through distribution deals and working with increasingly high profile creators to the point where we are a mainstream channel with millions of viewers across multiple networks and devices in 3-5 years time. At this point, they believe they will be a prime acquisition target for major channels, production companies and media businesses.

    There are many recent examples of original content generating channels being bought by larger channels, established production companies and media businesses*. Comedy Crowd TV hopes to be ideally placed in 3-5 years time to be an exciting acquisition target for these businesses. The company is looking to expand the in-house creative team and work with marketing specialists to promote the content. A key focus is on building the right advisory board to open doors for more brand and distribution partnerships.

    * Future PLC buys Barcroft Studios in November 2019 for £23.5m ($30m). Barcroft Studios focussed on the digital to TV incubation method for factual content.

    * AMC acquires RLJ Entertainment in 2018 for approx $60m. RLJ operates two internet video subscription services: Acorn TV, which features British television and film content, and UMC (Urban Movie Channel)
