Younger viewers now watch more Netflix than BBC

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/ ... -on-demand

The BBC is facing a crisis over its youth audience after admitting that young people are spending more time watching Netflix than all of its BBC TV services each week, and listening to more music on streaming services such as Spotify than BBC radio stations.

The corporation has traditionally dominated the UK TV and radio landscape but is having to reinvent the way it connects with media-savvy young audiences who are turning increasingly to digital services – mostly provided by US tech companies such as YouTube, Apple and Netflix – for entertainment and news.

The BBC said it had found that 16- to 24-year-olds spend more time with Netflix in a week than with all of BBC TV including the BBC iPlayer, despite the latter’s relative popularity with younger viewers.

“As the trend shifts towards on-demand viewing, the BBC risks being overtaken by competitors,” the BBC said in its annual plan published on Wednesday. “Maintaining the reach and time that audiences spend with our output is … difficult when they have so many other choices at their disposal. This challenge is most acute for young audiences.”

The rapid generational shift in viewing by younger users is dramatically highlighted when the BBC widens its analysis to include viewers a decade older, in the 16- to 34-year-old range. The corporation said that including this older age group rebalances the survey, bringing overall weekly viewing of BBC1, ITV and Netflix approximately even at about two hours a week.
The corporation also said that for the first time it had found in the final quarter of last year that 15- to 34-year-olds spent more time listening to streaming music services than all of BBC radio: five hours versus four hours 30 minutes a week.

“The global media landscape is going to be dominated by four, perhaps five, businesses on the west coast of America in the years to come,” said the director general, Tony Hall, in a speech on the BBC’s priorities over the next year. “Companies with extraordinary technical, financial and creative firepower. Does music streaming spell mortal danger to radio? Can iPlayer keep pace with a rapidly growing Netflix?”


Kind of explains why half the kids in my area are speaking with American accents :lol:

The last part does make sense, California is now absolutely dominating global entertainment.

Yup. I wasn't expecting much when I started the first season but it's actually really good. Although they completely miscast Holden.

How long before it gets going? I'm a few eps in and am finding it incredibly dry. (Favourite Netflix at the moment though is Space Dandy and I found it difficult to get into at first as well, so there's hope yet for The Expanse.)

S: Neither was the last one. It was a robbery. M: Really? S: Yeah. She stole my heart. And my crown. (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)

Definitely takes a while. I haven't seen S1 for ages but I'd say it only really hots up after the first 3 or 4 eps. Ditto with S2.

My issue with Holden is that, in the books, he's this grizzled veteran with a heart. In the show he's played as a 30 something pretty-boy. It works, but the original version just fits better in that role.

Definitely stick with it. S1 can take a while to get going, but by halfway or so you should know if you're going to like it. I found S2 was superb from start to finish.

Probably doesn't help that they put a lot of BBC shows on Netflix instead of iPlayer.
A few weeks back I wanted to watch The Detectorists, not on iPlayer but S1 and S2 are on Netflix.

The reason why this happens is because BBC are forced by the government to use outside production companies for x% of their shows, and so the BBC no longer owns as much of it's content.

For some reason I watched Game over, man earlier. I'm ill so just shoved the first thing I saw on Netflix on that would require minimal attention.

Awful film. I like Workaholics, but knew this was going to be gooseberry fool. I laughed a couple times, but it's not even in the "it's so bad it's good" category.

3/10 for me

From what I remember he was exactly that in the books, pretty boy always sleeping around which was a put off for Naomi at the start. Of course in the latest book he's a grizzled vet as it's set a good number of years later and the crew of the Roci are all getting on.
