How strong are European films on pay-per-view and subscription VOD?

The European Audiovisual Observatory has just published a free new report analysing the market share of European films in the pay-per-view (TVOD) and subscription VOD (SVOD) markets. Our report finds that:

    The average iTunes catalogue includes around 24% of EU films of which only 4% are purely national productions
    The share of EU films on average in Microsoft catalogues is 17%, of which 35% are national productions
    Out of all EU films available on SVOD  in Europe, national films represent only 15% vs. 85% for EU non-national films

The European Audiovisual Observatory is part of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. This new report is entitled: The origin of films in VOD catalogues. It was supported by the DG Connect of the European Commission.
