For the first time MIDiA has included TV genre preferences and willingness to pay for them into its quarterly surveys. This covers 20 different TV genres, cross reference-able across 75 specific TV Show fan segments and 25 additional consumer segments.

The fresh insights from this data will be published in a report on TV genre preferences, so stay tuned. Until then however, let us offer a sneak peek of some genre-related findings.

  • Highest genre popularity does not necessarily mean highest paid conversion: At 55%, comedy is the most widely desired genre as part of a TV service. However, when it comes to willingness to pay, movies take the first spot. The same dynamics can apply vice-versa. While sports are fourth in terms of willingness to pay, they don’t make the top five in terms of desirability.

  • Anime, foreign film and TV, and political drama convert best: Relative to the size of each genre’s audience, anime, foreign film and TV, and political drama have a 100% conversion rate, followed by 96% for sports and 90% for the kids genre. On the other hand, the genre with  the lowest conversion rate is news, where only 56% of consumers who would like to have the genre would be willing to pay for it.

The dataset is invaluable in designing a content genre mix, adjusting user acquisition strategies and tactics for video services, informing niche video service strategies and more, so be sure to look around.

 MIDiA’s Tips:

- Download both datasets in excel format

- Apply filters to the top row

- Sort question answer alphabetically in both datasets

- Divide those willing to pay for a genre by those that like it

- This will result in finding out which genre converts best relative to the size of its audience/fan base

As always, if you have any questions, suggestions, a bug to report, or would simply like to say hi, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Happy Fusing!
