By: The BitMar Team.

Streaming has revolutionized the way in which people consume media. It has disrupted the traditional media landscape, and transformed the entertainment industry. Today, millions of people watch movies, TV shows, and other content, through streaming services, worldwide. With that in mind... how will the future of streaming seem like, in 2030? Experts believe that we can expect a range of exciting developments, which could transform the streaming experience in the next decade.

The growth of original content is one major trend that is expected to continue accelerating. According to a report, by: the Motion Picture Association, the number of original scripted TV shows released, by streaming services, in the U.S., has increased by 680%, since 2011. This trend is expected to continue, with more streaming services investing heavily in original programming, in order to attract and retain subscribers. Streaming companies are already producing critically-acclaimed shows and movies. This is likely to continue in the future.

Another trend that is likely to shape the future of streaming, is: the rise of Virtual Reality (V.R.), and Augmented Reality (A.R.) technology. According to a report, by: Statista, the global market for V.R., and A.R., is expected to grow to over $209 billion, by 2022. Streaming services could use this technology to create immersive viewing experiences for their subscribers. For example: viewers could use V.R. headsets to watch movies as if they were inside the film's world. This could revolutionize the way in which people experience media, while creating a more interactive and engaging viewing experience.

The development of 5G networks is also expected to have a significant impact on the future of streaming. According to a report, by: Ericsson, the number of 5G subscriptions, worldwide, is expected to reach 2.8 billion, by 2025. This could enable streaming services to deliver high-quality video content to their subscribers—regardless of their location. With faster download and upload speeds, viewers could watch content in higher resolutions, with fewer interruptions and/or buffering issues.

In addition to the aforementioned developments... we can also expect new streaming platforms to emerge, within the next decade. Therefore, we can expect changes in the way in which people pay for, and consume, streaming content. For example: some experts predict that we may experience the rise of ad-supported streaming services, wherein viewers watch content, for free, in exchange for watching ads. This could be particularly appealing to younger viewers; who are less likely to pay for content.

In conclusion, the future of streaming is likely to be shaped by a range of exciting developments—from the growth of original content, to the rise of V.R., and A.R. technologies. These changes could transform the way in which people experience media, while creating more immersive and engaging viewing experiences. With the development of 5G networks, and the emergence of new streaming platforms, viewers will have even more options in which they will be able to access their favorite shows, and movies. As new 'payment' models emerge, streaming services will continue evolving; and adapting to the changing needs, and preferences, of their customers.
