Peak TV is over, and that is a good thing for content creators

The term “Peak TV” was coined to describe the dizzying amount of television shows flooding the screens of everyday viewers, driven by the rapid growth of the streaming age. Streaming giants like Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video were at the forefront of this revolution, offering an ever-expanding library of original -and expensive- video content. However, recent data suggests that Peak TV has reached its zenith, and the implications of this shift are promising for the streaming industry.

Embracing technology and data-driven ads over massive quantity

The focus is no longer on producing a plethora of shows to attract subscribers, but rather on creating high-quality, engaging content that resonates with specific target audiences. Rather than drowning viewers in a sea of options, content providers are now aiming to curate shows that captivates and fosters a loyal and immersed viewer base.

Consequently, advertising is emerging as a new revenue stream, as the content giants have introduced successfully ad-supported subscription tiers.

“Now that most media companies have moved away from driving streaming subscriber growth at all costs, we expect to see a rationalization of content spending in the years ahead and a shift towards ad-driven profitability,” said Gio Punzo, CEO of Streann Media.
