Revenues from subscription-based VoD (SVoD) services are estimated to have reached EUR 455 million in France during 2018, up 83 percent year-on-year compared to growth of 90 percent in 2017. The figures, part of a study by GfK and NPA Conseil, have been published by the French national film centre, the CNC, within its annual report. As in 2017, the continued strong growth in SVoD revenues was mainly driven by Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, which both secured further market share gains.
