BBC : Building Connected TV Apps

BBC : Building Connected TV Apps | OTT TV | Scoop.it

Today the BBC iPlayer, News and Sport apps are available on an astonishing 650 connected TV devices, from internet-enabled or Smart TVs and set-top-boxes to media players and games consoles, delivering more than 45 million videos to 2 million users every month. Most recently, the BBC Sport app has been used by more than 200,000 users a day to watch the phenomenal London 2012 Olympic Games coverage on connected TVs alone, having only launched a few short weeks before.

 

While this is a remarkable achievement in itself, it certainly wasn't easy or straightforward, and I would like to share with you what challenges we have encountered, what we have learnt in the process of solving them and what we believe is important to consider for anyone looking at building applications for connected TVs.

How to build a Netflix-like multiscreen OTT service (part 2) : panorama of available technical solutions

How to build a Netflix-like multiscreen OTT service (part 2) : panorama of available technical solutions | OTT TV | Scoop.it

Now that you intensively crawled through part 1 of this blog-post and asked yourself all the right questions intended to avoid common OTT-traps, we can safely presume that you are ready to spend some (or a lot of) time and money on launching your own multiscreen OTT service. So it’s definitely time to choose your bricks, mortar and trowels...

 

As multiscreen OTT/TV Everywhere offers do proliferate while each video tradeshow approaches and connected devices multiply, it’s difficult to monitor all of them and get a 100% accurate idea on who’s got the best offer. Basically your ideal technical partner will most likely be a unique target depending on your background (telco/content owner/TV channel…), your needs (target devices, business models, time to market…), your workflow constraints (CMS, billing, deployed transcoding engines, already deployed apps…) and your budget. Nevertheless, what I tried to do first is to isolate a list of actors whose offer is end-to-end and sufficiently versatile to cover the most common use cases and devices, then provide a complementary list with actors who provide less information but are also known in this market, and then wrap up the post with a bunch of ideas on how you could DoItYourself with less integrated/locking-in solutions. This way, you will end-up with a complete panorama of available technical solutions in mind.

Apple’s plan to take over TV: Cloud-based DVR, iOS interface, social sharing

Apple’s plan to take over TV: Cloud-based DVR, iOS interface, social sharing | OTT TV | Scoop.it


Apple’s (AAPL) plan to take over our living rooms starts with a cloud-based DVR service, social sharing features and an icon-based user interface, The Wall Street Journal reports. Following up the paper’s earlier report, which reiterated news from earlier this year surrounding Apple’s negotiations with television service providers, the Journal cited multiple unnamed sources in claiming Apple has big plans for the live TV service it is currently pitching alongside its vision of the next-generation Apple TV set-top box. Among the key features are global cloud-based DVR service, which would allow users to watch any show on-demand at any time once it has begun airing; a user interface similar to the one seen on the company’s iPhone and iPad; and social features that would allow users to share TV shows through services like Twitter. The Journal also reiterated that Apple is currently negotiating directly with content owners and not just with service providers.
