Meeting End-User Expectations with IPTV
For TV and video services, these are interesting times. On the one hand, we’re seeing major consolidation of traditional cable and telecom operators, while on the other hand IPTV and OTT have lowered the barrier to entry for upstart TV operators with novel business models. The result is a consumer that’s spoiled for choice and places ever-evolving requirements on their TV service, while increasing pressure to pull in subscribers is putting a strain on pricing.
IPTV allows operators to offer much of the functionality your end-user expects, at predictable quality. Thanks to major strides in connectivity and bandwidth, IPTV can often match the quality of traditional DVB cable operations, while enabling the addition of replay TV, VoD and more. By adding OTT functionality, operators gain a multi-screen, future-ready TV platform that can iterate and evolve as technology and consumer-behavior develops in the years to come.
Even though IPTV and OTT are definitely a big part of the future of TV and video, there are some things to keep in mind. For one, IPTV and OTT operations can be quite complex compared to the hands-off approach usually adopted when operating traditional DVB services. Constant changes, updates and releases in specific parts of the technology stack can cause interruptions and constantly challenge the stability of your platform. Additionally, changes in technology and new ‘must-have’ functionality, requires constant development to keep your service competitive.
