Our pick of the best entertainment sectors to invest in

The entertainment industry is absolutely enormous, so it makes sense that there is huge scope for investment within it. As humans, we are always attracted to novelty and our preferences for entertainment are no different. For this reason, there are a number of investments on this list that are relatively uncharted territory. From television programs that you can interact with to video games that let you experience them as though they are real-life—though the technology is new, our fascination with new experiences is as old as time itself.

So if you’re looking to expand your portfolio into a new sector entirely, or diversify within the realms of entertainment, then these are our suggestions to you.

Interactive Television

Interactive television seems to be the master plan for Netflix

Choose your own adventure stories saw a lot of us through our early reading years, but the practicalities of turning these sorts of books into television programs always seemed a long way off. That is, until now. Netflix has positioned itself as the pioneer of interactive television with releases such as Black Mirror’s Bandersnatch. This feature-length drama allowed viewers to make decisions via their remote on what the protagonist would do next. The show was met with rave reviews and people took notice.

There are now several interactive television companies that it is possible to invest in. Although this is potentially a high-risk investment, if this sort of viewing does take off then it could be a very high reward.

Online Casinos

Land-based casinos have been a popular destination for entertainment-seeking customers for more than a century now. We enjoy the fun of all of the different games on offer and the social interaction. Though online casinos have only existed since 1996 and have only really gained popularity since the turn of the millennium, they have been coming up with ever more inventive ways to replicate that real-life casino experience.

The advent of the live dealer casino has seen a surge in users who might ordinarily choose a land-based casino as the place to spend their free time. These casinos use state-of-the-art streaming technology to enable customers to feel totally immersed in the game. It isn’t just live dealer casinos that have seen customer numbers grow though.

Online casino sites have seen a surge in use over the past couple of years. Sites like offer slots games to players, which are popular thanks to their simple user interface. Slots also lend themselves to an online format perfectly, with computers allowing colorful graphics and catchy theme tunes to be rendered perfectly in the customer’s own home.


The world of eSports had been chugging along quite quietly for more than a decade until streaming platforms like Twitch burst into the mainstream. Suddenly a whole new group of people had access to high-level competitive gaming. This has given rise to a huge spike of interest in this previously secretive world. Companies are putting up millions of dollars of prize money, betting sites are covering hundreds of the tournaments.

Most of all though, eSports teams are pulling together and floating themselves on the stock market. Although the eSports market is volatile, there is value to be found within this industry. The guide on the very best eSports stocks to invest in is far too extensive to cover in detail, but there is certainly something to appeal to everyone.

Virtual Reality

Although we’ve focused on the newcomers to the market so far, virtual reality deserves a mention as there are a number of stocks to watch at the moment. Virtual reality has been a buzzword for decades now without ever really having reached the heights that we would’ve expected. However, advances in video cameras and the price point of headsets dropping could come together to produce the long awaited boom in the market.
