Entertainment One become latest distributor to use 3Vision’s Show Tracker

eOne will be using the tool to help them understand the rapidly evolving rights market place

3Vision a leading international content consultancy has announced that Entertainment One will be joining a growing list of major distributors (most recently All3Media) and buyers in using the 3Vision Show Tracker tool to drive forward their global distribution plans.

[LONDON, UK August 8, 2019] The 3Vision Show Tracker service is a powerful tool that tracks the distribution of over 300 scripted TV series in major global markets and monitors over 22 parameters related to the show distribution, including catch-up utilisation, 2nd window and genre. In an increasingly complex acquisition ecosystem the tool delivers crucial information for buyers and sellers.

Jack Davison, EVP at 3Vision said that “We are seeing unprecedented levels of change in the scripted TV market - new rights requirements, new windowing dynamics and significant shifts in the way shows are finding their revenue potential. 77% of shows sold to Free TV in first window in the 2018/19 season offered extensive catch-up (in-season stacking or box sets) – that’s a 33% point increase from the 16/17 season. As broadcasters are utilising shows for longer and with more rights (as the BBC’s iPlayer plan to do) distributors need to consider impacts on downstream revenues (potential for 2nd window SVOD deals).” Show Tracker helps content businesses understand the impact of changes by capturing and analysing large amounts of detail around show deals.

Nick Yelland, Director, International Research, eOne said that “the continued increase in and growth of OTT platforms globally combined with audience demand for ‘tv anytime, anywhere’ has increased the complexity of license deals as well as providing further opportunities for distribution. We are looking forward to gaining new insight into this rapidly evolving marketplace through 3Vision’s Show Tracker.”
