Content acquisition in the age of social distancing

How content buyers can #stayhome, yet continue to discover and license finished content during the coronavirus pandemic.

As people stay home, they are consuming more content, more quickly. HBONow reports a 65% increase in daily binge watching of three episodes or more, and a 70% increase in movie watching. 

Streamers aren’t the only ones to benefit from increased consumption. Network TV viewing has shown an uptick of 19% and children daytime programming viewership increased 31% week on week, according to Comscore.

More so than ever, content acquisition is critical in keeping catalogues and schedules loaded with fresh content to entertain audiences at home. With travel bans and cancelled markets, traditional business handshakes must give way to socially-distant digital dealings. And with new content production on hold, the focus now shifts to discovering and licensing finished content.

With Vuulr’s Digital Content Marketplace, you can access a huge catalogue (over 50,000 hours across 60 genres) of quality film & TV programming at your fingertips.
