OTT distribution is worlds apart from traditional unidirectional broadcasting in terms of its fundamental operation and viewing preferences.
The internet is a rapidly expanding collection of service providers, many in direct competition, transferring broadcaster video and audio streams alongside many other types of often conflicting data.
This multi-service supplier approach has led to a proliferation of a silo culture leading to attitudes such as “it’s fine leaving me” and “it’s coming into me like that”. This approach further compounds issues and significantly increases the time to find faults, all leading to a diminished user experience resulting in lost revenue and poor ratings.
