Better Value

The digital and streaming media industry makes it possible for creative content – from the biggest names in entertainment to small and independent creators – to reach consumers connected via computers, tablets, TVs, smartphones, smart speakers, and other connected devices.

More Choices

Consumers now enjoy more content, from more creators, in more ways than at any point in history. Greater choice gives consumers better value and more flexibility to engage with creative content in new and exciting ways.

Thriving Industry

Streaming encourages and enhances the entertainment experience through direct access to consumers that facilitates sharing. Streaming builds and enhances communities that enable content creators to distribute, promote and share their creativity. Streaming generates billions of dollars in royalties, fueling the creative engine.

Creators

Digital services give creators the power to distribute their content directly to fans, helping them reach a bigger audience. Fewer gatekeepers means more creative control for content creators.

Copyright Owners

Streaming contributes billions of dollars a year in royalty payments to copyright owners. Technology and transparency bring new revenue that fuels job growth and continued investment in the creative ecosystem.

DiMA Fights for Streaming Innovation

Better for consumers, who can discover and share eBooks, music and videos, connect directly with their favorite creators and each other, anywhere, anytime on any device.

Better for creators, who enjoy more creative freedom, fewer industry gatekeepers, and direct access to a global audience.

Better for copyright owners, who annually receive billions of dollars in royalties, fewer barriers to entry, and lower distribution costs.
