Portrate added: “BVOD remains Australia’s fastest growing media channel and for good reason. It offers reach, scale, and effectiveness. More advertisers are coming to understand BVOD’s power to shift sales just as more consumers are live streaming TV content more often. Given that, BVOD’s growth is poised to continually outpace online video competitors in the coming months and years.”
