BVA launches up-to-date map of the video entertainment landscape
On the day the BVA 2011 Yearbook is published, with new value data included for the first time, the BVA is also making available an up-to-date map of the entire video landscape on its website, showing the wide array of physical and digital services on offer to the public through which to access video content of all genres.
In 2010’s Yearbook digital transactions were added to disc unit sales and rentals and the 2011 Yearbook now completes the picture by providing a breakdown of both retail and rental markets by volume and value. This illustrates, for example, that digital retail sales doubled in value between 2009 and 2010, according to data supplied by IHS Screen Digest. It also shows that the more established digital rental models saw an increase of 12% in consumer spending.
As new paid-for services continue to be developed, the BVA will refresh its map of video entertainment offers, which can be downloaded in detail here.
