As we approach another end of a year, it’s time to think about what will come in the following year. 2023 is sneaking up on us quite quickly, and it’s here to bring some big change as far as most of us are predicting or expecting! What is predicted to happen in this coming year’s entertainment and media? Keep reading to find out!
Streaming is in Rocky Standing
While streaming services are incredibly popular and usable right now, most are predicted to have a harsh fight into 2023 to keep in high standing and keep their customers as well as revenue going strong. Since so many have crowded the market they’re expected to need to pull out some big changes and attractive additions to keep or draw in any money moving forward.
Sports Media Decline
Sports and the related streaming, viewing, or media tied into it are on the decline in the past years. While the Superbowl and other main events in sports are still popular, they aren’t what they once were. And most predictions put sports media low on the ladder of things we’ll keep strong going into next year.
Cryptocurrency, NFTs, and the Metaverse aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Whether that means good or bad is totally up to you. But the Metaverse is definitely picking up stride and becoming a more commonly known term in investing and in household use or knowledge towards the end of this year.
Short and Social Video Increase
You’ve probably already caught on to how popular short video content is becoming with platforms like YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels, and TikTok skyrocketing in both popularity and usage over the past months. This isn’t seeming to slow down anytime soon since platforms are working hard to draw in new and existing creators as well as earn more money.
Podcasts were once a niche thing that most people didn’t partake in or know about. But they’ve steadily climbed the charts on multiple platforms, especially places like Spotify, over the years and are now gaining popularity like crazy. Predictions think that podcasts will actually gain even more popularity and stay up high on charts for 2023.
Fitness Media Takeover
As with many years, fitness and new trends regarding wellness are always rotating into the spotlight. This won’t slow down since it really never does. The increasing prevalence of fitness content in the media is expected to go up and stay strong this coming year, which could mean more interesting fitness for those of you at home!
Media and Influencer Earnings
Since social media still stays on top like it has for so many years, and many ways for influencers to partner with brands or earn money are becoming more available, it’s very likely that media earnings will continue to rise both from fan support and from earnings received from platforms like Twitch, YouTube, and TikTok for content creation.
Cable TV Obsolete
We already know that cable television is on its way out. It is struggling to keep up with all of the additions of streaming or media services. And most people just don’t use it anymore. Most surveys have said that the large portions of households don’t even subscribe to cable TV, and many that do rarely use it. This could continue heavily into next year.
At Home Earning
Similarly to the media and influencer earnings, more people are directly willing to contribute to celebrities and influencers that they enjoy rather than going to other sources by subscribing, donating, or paying for memberships with platforms like Patreon. This rise is expected to go steady for a while, which means way more at home earning options to go strong.
Celebrities Fall Off
Celebrities are still a big part of modern society and culture, but they’re starting to lose their grip. Most people in the world of fame have been discussing the whisperings of less and less influence from famous folk on everyday households and individuals, and it hasn’t slowed. While celebs still have their fans they seem to be slowly creeping to the backburner of society’s priority list.
There’s only so much that can be guessed at and predicted for the entertainment trends to come in 2023, but these top 10 are what most people discussing the topic can agree on and ones that make sense considering how this year has gone. After all, these are guesses based off of past years in combination with the current trends of this year. We’ll just have to see to find out!
