2.0 Market Research
Industry Profile and Outlook

Our company will operate in the internet television industry. The industry is relatively new, fast growing and revolutionary. Our company will broadcast channels from Russia and other post soviet countries through Internet Protocol Television system (IPTV). IPTV is the digital distribution of television content via internet. IPTV allows the users to choose channels and show from an archived database either by streaming it from the server to a media player or directly downloading it to the user’s PC. This service is also known as TV on Demand. The peak times usually occur at 10pm and the data transfer can rise to 12GB per second, and ...view middle of the document...

As it was stated before the industry we will be operating in is relatively new to the market and significantly fast growing. In 2008 the actual amount of IPTV subscribers was 1 million and it grew to 26.9 million at 2009. According to the research it is predicted to grow to over 81 million at the end of 2013 and that just shows how the market is expanding. Another key factor that points to extreme increase in this market is that the revenue is expected to increase from $9.7 billion in 2009 to $25.6 billion in 2013 for that industry. This indicates that technological changes created a new market to enter and increasing availability of the internet access for households will keep it growing from year to year. Even though there are many companies in that industry both North American and European this market is still undeveloped and so to speak “undivided”. If we take NetFlix as an example of growth we can see that in the company recorded revenues of $2,162.6 million during the financial year ended December 2010 (FY2010), an increase of 29.5% over FY2009. The operating profit of the company was $283.6 million during FY2010, an increase of 47.8% over FY2009. The net profit was $160.9 million during FY 2010, an increase of 38.8% over FY2009. We may be not as large as NetFlix because our target market is significantly smaller but this data shows the noticeable increase in profits and what is more important it shows the increase of technological availability and increase of market potential.

Local Market

Since our business is providing television by IPTV we don’t have the geographical limits for our market and can expand to any place by not even being physically located there or having a representative office. But still on our early stage of business we will be aiming on Toronto’s Russian population which amount to 400,000 people primarily inhabiting North York, Thornhill and Richmond Hill. The community is well represented as well in Newmarket, Aurora, Mississauga and such neighbourhoods of Toronto as Eglinton-Lawrence, Bathurst-Steeles, High Park, Etobicoke-Lakeshore etc. Other sectors will be targeted as our company will grow in clients. Of course there is a possibility for us to expand in US market but we may encounter an opposition from well established US IPTV providers.
Keys to Success

In order for our mission to be successful we need to not only stream popular channel from post soviet space but also to introduce a video on demand option for our customers which will include blockbuster and other movies or tv-shows professionally translated into Russian. For this to work we need to partner up with many channels and obtain license permissions from them as from companies who make official translations and primary copyright holders. Also we should considering partnering with either Bell or Rogers so they will support us with reliable bandwidth connection and a possibility to advertise our services to Russian speaking community across...
