Media & Entertainment

Simon-Kucher & Partners helps media and entertainment companies improve their profitability by developing and implementing ways to market and manage their physical and digital portfolios better. Our experienced team has worked with clients in the US and Europe to price new digital products and services, overhaul their bundling strategies, better understand the price interrelationships and cannibalization across physical and digital platforms, optimize price structures (e.g. subscription vs. transactional) and set rates for advertising.

We take a rigorous approach which relies on both quantitative and qualitative evidence as well as on benchmarks from our extensive work within and outside of the media and entertainment sectors.
