Online Resources

The NewsNet247 Perspective

A number of established news and editorial based publications now exist online via websites and apps, often with subscription requirements for access. The majority of online news outlets are extensions of broadcast news channels or news agencies themselves.

The AVTN Perspective

A considerable number of websites featuring ‘news’, relating to Aviation, exist but many aggregate or re-share news and information from other sources. While a few websites are extensions of well-known magazines, and could be re-purposed to present an element of competition to AVTN, in the UK and Europe a web-based competitor would be required to hold a Category B broadcasting licence issued by Ofcom. Services offering streamed content are seen as facing issues with attracting high profile corporate advertisers, without significant additional investment. A number of aviation journalists run their own prominent websites and blogs, and are seen as potential future AVTN collaborators.

Industry Reports & Consultancies

The NewsNet247 Perspective

The principal sources for Financial News and Market Data are also likely to be both a competitor and client to the Network. Consultancies are seen as a rich source of data to report on, and their compiling entities are considered prime partners for producing co-branded reports and services.

The AVTN Perspective

With exception to a Global provider of Financial News and Market Data already discussed within the Broadcast sector, the principle competition to AVTN as a provider of business information and reports will be from aviation Consultancies. Rather than compete in every aspect of their business, though this is entirely possible, AVTN sees such consultancies as a rich source of interview guests/pundits and foresees substantial advantage in collaboration when compiling data, with the ability to re-purpose it in formats appealing to both the Consultancy’s and AVTN’s market and clients. Collaborations could reduce compilation and research costs, while extending the marketable reach and value of data and reports and provide increased exposure for all parties involved.
