Film Distribution – Key Success Parameters Hinduja Media Group Strategy Maximize Returns from the Satellite Market: With the spurt in the number of Television channels, there is an increase in demand for movie content Players can take advantage of this situation and enter into innovative arrangements with the channels. PPVs,VoDs,PVRs are all possible in digital addressable systems Digital Cable with addressability has options for launching films citywise and regional /segment wise Instead of sale of satellite rights for a specific period, companies can enter into revenue arrangements based on number of screenings with satellite channels This way the players need not get tied up for a specific number of years and also can sell these rights to multiple number of channels.
Film Distribution – Key Success Parameters Hinduja Media Group Strategy Focus on Innovative marketing and packaging of content : Today the theatrical windows in India are being greatly compressed It has now become imperative to package ones product innovatively that could get the audience into the theaters in the opening week itself and sustain it self post that with word of mouth and second rung of promotional activity In todays age of clutter, it is as important to package and present your product cleverly as much as focusing on the right content Companies need to focus on maximizing their revenue from alternate revenue streams,mainly on the addressable digital TV distribution stream With the Video on Demand services on Digital Cable, DTH and IPTV expected to pick up in future, players need to build up a strong and diverse content library to capitalize on content demand as well as mitigate their risks.
