Movies

Netflix, Hulu and Amazon continue to impact theater revenues and DVD sales because they make it cheaper and more convenient to enjoy at home.

Music

CD purchases have been replaced by online options that can be listened to on personal devices and computers.

Games

Games are now available via download and can be played anywhere on personal devices.

Spending

In 2015, consumers spent $9.8B on wireless audio to get the entertainment experience they want at home. This number is projected to grow year over year by 23%[1].

People spend more on entertainment products that are simple, easy to understand, and that play all of their entertainment from any device [2].

Volume builders are best-positioned to capitalize on this demand:

  • Builders make the homes where buyers want the entertainment experience.
  • Installed speakers deliver even sound to every person in the room, unlike portable or tabletop speakers.
  • New homes matching the buyer’s way of life are more attractive than pre-owned.
  • Homes that include a feature buyers use every day increases perceived value at purchase and resale.
  • Buyers include sound in the mortgage rather than cash out of pocket at retail.

What volume builders say is needed to make entertainment profitable:

  • A way to offer wireless entertainment in every home without changing the base cost of the home.
  • A way to deliver it in every home without changing the way homes are built today.
  • A way for sales to offer every buyer the experience, but not sell the product.
  • No responsibility for “a system” after the home is delivered.
