French VoD market grows 23% to EUR 200 million in 2012

Thursday 17 January 2013 | 10:32 CET | News
Excluding adult videos, France's VoD market grew by around 23 percent to EUR 200 million in 2012, according to estimates from GfK cited by digital video publishers' association SEVN. There were over 60 million VoD payments last year, nearly all on telecom operators' IPTV services, said SEVN president Pauline Grimaldi d'Esdra. Due to the sales being lost to video piracy, the overall video market contracted by 5 percent to EUR 1.32 billion, however, despite the surge in VoD revenues and Blu-ray revenues up 9 percent. Some 65 million DVDs and 10 million Blu-ray discs were sold last year.
