Futuresource Video Insights: South Korea

The South Korean video market continues to impress, with almost universal Pay-TV adoption the backbone of the market, supported by the second largest transactional VoD market worldwide (after the USA), as a result of a unique windowing structure. However, the major development throughout 2019 was the explosion in demand for SVoD and emergence of a highly competitive environment. This is led by Netflix, but also driven by telcos and broadcasters partnering and investing significant resources to establish and drive domestic services.

  • Online Video: Electronic sell-through (movie and TV), iVoD (movie) and subscription online video (SVoD)
  • Pay-TV VoD: True VoD
  • Physical home video: DVD & Blu-ray (sell-through and rental)
  • Subscription Pay-TV (i.e. monthly cable/satellite TV subscription fees)
  • Box office
