How telcos and OTTs are disrupting the traditional broadcast industry

In recent years, we’ve seen a huge shift toward video being distributed and accessed via the internet—and as more viewers turn to the internet to watch video and TV shows, this trend appears to be unstoppable.

This is putting significant pressure on traditional players, who are not only facing competition from over-the-top (OTT) players like Netflix, but also face competition from telcos—Telia, AT&T and Telefonica have all recently done deals that put them in direct competition with traditional broadcasters.

But are telcos there to threaten or assist traditional players? And how can traditional broadcasters ensure they remain competitive in the media and entertainment market?

This MediaTech report looks at:

  • The impact that new players such as OTTs and telcos are having on the traditional broadcast industry
  • How traditional players can differentiate in the new competitive landscape
  • The critical role that MediaTech solutions providers can play in supporting this process
