In today’s ultra-competitive media landscape, pay TV operators face fierce competition from pure OTT players. There is now a consumer expectation to have an OTT offering as part of their service, which adds operational complexity and cost.

Providing an OTT service for a traditional Pay TV operator means setting up a new end-to-end value chain with new components, including apps, CMS, encoding, DRM etc. Even though there are vendors providing end-to-end solutions, Pay TV operators often want to select best-of-breed partners, avoid lock-in, and utilise current encoding facilities.
