The Russian video market has seen phenomenal growth in the past three years, with major financial backing being provided to the largest services in response to rapid consumer adoption of digital video consumption. EST has helped drive a resurgence in paying for content following historically high levels of piracy and widespread use of AVoD. In recent years, AVoD and transactional services have widened their scope, offering SVoD which is now become a key driving force in the market, with all the key services offering SVoD, EST and TVoD options and some offering AVoD also. Yandex, known as the Google of Russia, has entered the market and is pursuing a strategy akin to Amazon Prime, driving the sector.
