Investment in BVOD platforms 7plus, 9Now, 10 Play, Foxtel Go, Foxtel Now and Kayo continues to accelerate with BVOD revenue up 10% to $239 million for the six months to 31 December 2022. BVOD revenue for the total financial year was $448 million, up 23.5% year-on-year.

ThinkTV CEO Kim Portrate said: “Just as Australians and their love for TV continued in 2022, so too did advertisers’ reliance on Total TV as the foundation for their marketing efforts.

“This is clear in the numbers. Total TV had a solid year, despite the last six months reflecting broader macro-economic conditions felt by all sectors of the industry.

“Audience viewing habits continue to shift and Australian broadcasters are expanding the way they cater to these changes.

“The growth of streaming viewership, and the introduction of FAST channels, are two great examples of innovations in the BVOD space in the last 12 months. Advertisers are clearly taking note with revenue once again increasing for BVOD, Australia’s fastest growing media channel.”
