 broadcasters and content producers in North
 America and Western Europe highlighted that
 players are making substantial investments in new
 channels. As a whole, the survey results yield strong
 indication that service operators are primarily
 interested in expanding their product portfolio’s to
 incorporate new distribution channels. One of the
 biggest channels that players are interested in
 exploiting is the Internet, with over 56% of
 respondents stating that they are investing heavily
 into online distribution. The figure below illustrates
 results with regards to the level of investment

 distribution channels over the course of 2007. The
 survey illustrates that around 21% of broadcasters are investing heavily in alternative channels, allocating over
 20% of their IT budget in this area. As a whole, around 84% of respondents are aiming to invest at least
 some proportion of their budget into alternative distribution channels over the next 12 months.

 The survey suggests that the industry is actively looking to new strategies to delivery content. This
 development can be directly attributable to the significant shift in consumer consumption habits and the rise
 of alternative television players such as Joost, Jalipo and YouTube. While content producers and broadcasters
 are potentially using these alternative channels as an economical means to boost reach and generate
 customer loyalty, traditional pay-TV operators are looking to create innovative services in response to boost
 their competitive positions.

 Enhanced content services
 There is little doubt that service bundling and expanded product portfolios are essential for survival in an
 increasingly crowded and aggressive marketplace. While this issue is important, it is equally as crucial to
 ensure content itself is used as a source for differentiation. Video-on demand (VOD) services and high
 definition (HD) content are at present used by key players as a method to create differentiation in the market.
