Consumer frustrations with the grid/channel surfing, and industry competition have reached their respective tipping points. Digitalsmiths’ latest consumer survey revealed that the average Pay-TV subscriber only watches a handful of channels on a regular basis, and almost 70% of subscribers surveyed always or frequently have trouble finding something to watch, eroding the perceived value of their $85+/mo. subscription. Pair that with competitive offerings from other Pay-TV providers, online streaming services and the “virtual MSOs” recently launched by consumer electronics companies and you have the reasons behind the quickening race to improve the discovery experience.
To kick off what we believe will be the biggest year yet for personalized discovery, Digitalsmiths is headed to Las Vegas Jan. 7-11 for CES 2013 where we will be showcasing Digitalsmiths Seamless Discovery®, the industry’s most comprehensive personalized search and recommendations platform.
