OTT & Video
South Korea

OTT video services have been globally booming for several years now, attracting a surging number of viewers around the world. But the competition is fierce between platforms, as newcomers continue to enter the market regularly, whether they are local, adressing their home market, or studio giants, like Disney with its service Disney+ that was progressively launched between 2019 and 2020.

OTT video players use several different model to distribute their content, including:

  • SVOD: subscription video on demand, a model deployed by platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, HBO Max for instance
  • TVOD: transactional video on demand, the oldest on demand model, offered by Amazon Prime Video, or pay TV operators for instance
  • EST: electronic sell-through (also known as DTO, download to own)
  • AVOD: advertising video on demand, used by Youtube, Pluto TV, Plex or FTA broadcasters for instance

This module proposes a range of key performance quarterly indicators by actor and annual forecasts by country to understand the changes occurring in video consumption worldwide. In each country, we provide an overview of the whole video market from the classical digital supports (DVD, BluRay) to the new OTT platforms, including SVOD, TVOD, EST, AVOD and hybrid models.

Graphics and visualization tools enable us to grasp the market dynamics from first sight. Full data history and forecasts are summarized in downloadable tables, PDF or PPT.

The OTT & Video industry in South Korea

The online video streaming industry in South Korea has been developing since the second half of the 2000s. Many local telco operators offer cheap online video plans as TV Everywhere or mobile OTT solutions since 2006-2010. The SVOD (subscription video-on-demand) market experienced an increased growth with the entrance of Netflix in the country and the launch of new local actor Watcha, with an additional 2.5 million subscribers between 2015 and 2018. Meanwhile, other SVOD players have seen their audiences decrease because free content is widely available. The recent merger of services, like Oksusu and Pooq to create Wavve at the end of 2019, demonstrate that Korean platforms are now shifting towards aggregation to survive in a highly competitive environment.
