The Post-OTT Content Arms Race
  • Presenter Anthony Smith-Chaigneau - Senior Director Product Marketing, Nagra

Pay-TV industry has had an obsession with the technical how-to of OTT, rather than the consumer value proposition it can deliver and pay-TV is under pressure for that very reason. Direct-to-Consumer now occupies the minds of the content providers. Now that we are in the post-OTT era, the consumer continues to experience the fragmentation of content and a distorted value proposition in a complex landscape. As the post OTT world unfolds, is it consumer aggravation that will lead to re-aggregation of content under a simpler model that delivers all content in one-place, or is that already happening as we speak?
