Nordics is a special market, ripe for OTT approach, says HBO | Videonet

Nordics is a special market, ripe for OTT approach, says HBO | Videonet | Over-The-Top TV | Scoop.it

The Nordic market is starting to look like a test-bed for the future of TV, given the highly developed broadband and mobile infrastructure, the increasingly fierce competition between pure-play OTT services and Pay TV operators and the readiness for the traditional platform providers there to harness OTT to further their own ambitions, not just by providing TV Everywhere services but by reaching out to new customers. Confirming that this market is ripe for innovation, HBO has chosen the Nordics to go direct-to-consumer with its HBO GO offering, as well as partnering with local Pay TV operators for their multiscreen services.

The Smart TV model will fail unless it adapts, says BBC | Videonet | Over-The-Top TV | Scoop.it

Daniel Danker, General Manager Programmes & On Demand at the BBC, has hailed the rapid adoption of BBC iPlayer but highlighted the disappointingly low contribution that Smart TVs make to overall viewing for the platform and warned that we need a dramatic change in the Smart TV user experience and technology rationalization between the different platforms to keep the Smart TV concept afloat. Speaking at TV Connect last week he made it clear that having a dozen disparate development platforms is just not working.

Pay TV harnessing OTT: Multi-screen is just for starters | Videonet

Pay TV harnessing OTT: Multi-screen is just for starters | Videonet | Over-The-Top TV | Scoop.it

OTT used to be a threat but increasingly Pay TV operators are harnessing this maturing delivery technology and exploiting it as a market opportunity of their own. There is now an increasing volume of broadband delivered content going to operator set-top boxes, like with satellite operators providing VOD on their DVRs or cable operators integrating YouTube or channel partner apps into their STB service.

Integrating more OTT into Pay TV: Best practice and how far operators will go | Videonet

Integrating more OTT into Pay TV: Best practice and how far operators will go | Videonet | Over-The-Top TV | Scoop.it

Pay TV operators are starting to make greater use of streaming video within the home, but not just for multi-screen TV. There are plenty of examples of Pay TV operators delivering their own online video into their set-top boxes, often satellite providers making VOD available. A big question now is whether they will start allowing third-party online video (from ‘traditional’ OTT services) to be presented to their customers via their STB and user interface.

How Pay TV Lite services could become OTT giants | Videonet

How Pay TV Lite services could become OTT giants | Videonet | Over-The-Top TV | Scoop.it

'Pay TV Lite’ OTT services from traditional platform operators like Viasat, with its standalone subscription for on-demand content using Viaplay, and BSkyB, with its NOW TV brand, take on new significance when viewed in the context of a possible migration from broadcast delivery to streaming. As we have reported previously, it might be economic to migrate smaller SD channels from broadcast spectrum to OTT-only in the next decade but only if they can achieve the same audience reach as an online entity.

Improving the Quality of Experience for streaming | Videonet | Over-The-Top TV | Scoop.it

The moment Pay TV operators deliver a service, subscribers expect a high Quality of Service from them and that has proved the case with multi-screen/OTT delivery, even when the services are bundled free. The more they rely on streaming video, the more expectant they will become. That is why there is an industry-wide push to raise the standard of streaming video, and indeed the audio that accompanies it.

Operators welcome HEVC potential for UHD and multi-screen | Videonet

Pay TV operators in all categories have welcomed HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) as a game changer following its recent ratification by the ITU (International Telecommunications Union), although for varying reasons. There is broad agreement that HEVC will be the codec to usher in Ultra HDTV (UHDTV) services, but also that adoption will proceed gradually over some years as the whole broadcast ecosystem will have to be upgraded.
