UK television viewers are now more empowered with their entertainment options than ever. The rising penetration of broadband has enabled major national broadcasters to provide compelling TV catch-up sites like the BBC’s iPlayer for consumers that missed previously scheduled programming.
Innovative technology in the form of personal video recorders has also made it possible to schedule and watch content on demand in viewers’ living rooms. The likes of Virgin’s V+ and Sky Anytime provide users with a ready fix of entertainment that can be accessed 24/7.
The market for telecoms and digital TV offerings is also more competitive than ever, pushing down the price of a whole menu of services, which consumers can get as part of triple or quad-play deals. This has helped reinforce the trend towards consumers’ use of entertainment on demand.
