Why Over The Top Video Might Not Be So Disruptive After All

  • It’s common wisdom that “Over the top” Video is going to be a significant disruption to traditional service provider business and thus will have a significant negative long-term impact on that marketplace. Since service providers have the most to lose, they will be the least motivated to support OTT, and will therefore be the last to embrace it, if ever. Meanwhile, OTT will grow rapidly, possibly causing service providers to lose their position in video distribution over time.

    It would be great to hear the Telco Professionals community opinions!
