Multiscreen Video Strategies in CEE

LONDON, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Multiscreen Video Strategies in CEE

This IDC study analyzes the development and potential of multiscreen video services in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region. It analyzes the reasons that CEE consumers are viewing more video away from their home TV sets on mobile devices such as laptops, tablet computers, and smartphones, and considers the strategies that multiscreen providers are pursuing across the region. It concludes by providing recommendations and best practices for players seeking value from their multiscreen video service portfolios.

"The proliferation of mobile devices in CEE, more widespread broadband connectivity, and consumers' increased desire to view video on devices other than the home TV set will mean strong growth for multiscreen video services in the next few years. It will remain challenging for CEE multiscreen providers to monetize these services, although CEE consumers have shown that they are willing to pay for multiscreen services with high standards of quality and content. Further, multiscreen can offer providers other benefits, such as serving as a complement to services or helping the provider maintain visibility with customers." - Senior Research Analyst Matthew Marden, IDC CEMA Telecommunications
