Media Notes: FPF Hires Octagon's Global Media Rights Consulting Group

The Peruvian Football Federation (FPF), which recently qualified for the upcoming World Cup after a 36-year absence, is experiencing unprecedented commercial interest from Peru and internationally. In turn, the FPF hired Octagon's global media rights consulting group to maximize the value of the organization's commercial media rights for the national team and development team from '18-22. Octagon will advise the FPF on media rights valuation, distribution strategy and the sales process to potential media partners across broadcast, digital, social, radio, data and new media (Octagon).

New data from Juniper Research found that SVOD services will drive a surge in OTT revenues to reach $120B in '22, up from $64B in '17. The research "also found that over a quarter of global households" will subscribe to SVOD services by '22. The new research, Digital TV & Video: Network and OTT Strategies 2017-2022, found that expenditure by OTTs on original content was increasing. Juniper estimated that Netflix will spend over $6B during '17-18, in contrast to the publicly-funded BBC, which is investing a "comparatively small sum" of $1.4B (BROADBAND TV NEWS, 12/13).

The Paris St. Germain vs. Strasbourg Ligue 1 match, which PSG won 4-2, was watched by an average audience of 2.2 million viewers on France 3. The match numbers translated to a 9.6% market share (L’ÉQUIPE, 12/14).
