Stranger Things on Netflix, The Bear on Hulu, Shrinking on Apple TV+ … streaming video on demand (SVOD) subscription services have produced successful original series, further upending the traditional model of network programming. But how important are those original shows to the SVOD model?
Darden Professor Anthony Palomba discusses how consumers perceive streaming services based on the companies’ original series, and how those series inform customer loyalty and the value viewers place on a brand associated with shows they find appealing.
Can streaming services reconcile the tension of trying to be everything to everyone — which cuts into operating margins — or determine how to be judicious with the kind of content they produce?
Anthony Palomba authored “Building OTT Brand Loyalty and Brand Equity: Impact of Original Series on OTT Services,” which appeared in Telematics and Informatics.
