Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its latest Multiscreen
TV Service Strategies and Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider
Survey, which provides insights into pay-TV operators' plans for
multiscreen video services and delivering live and file-based video
content to subscribers with multiple devices.
"In a growing number of markets, pay-TV providers find themselves at a
crossroads," notes Jeff
Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics
Research. "Their traditional business models are under attack as
telco IPTV providers, over-the-top (OTT) providers, and consumer
electronics companies - Netflix, LOVEFiLM, Amazon, Hulu, Apple,
Samsung, and others - continue to divert revenue away from them."
"Pay-TV operators are simultaneously grappling with how to address the
desire among subscribers to take their content with them wherever they
go, whenever they go," adds Heynen.
"The net result is a major change in what equipment pay TV operators
invest in to ingest, encode, transcode, and play out video content, as
well as how they negotiate with content owners for the right to
distribute content across multiple formats."

study provides insights into business drivers and challenges,
technological challenges, types of devices and mobile operating systems
supported, transcoding and delivery methods, number of live streaming
channels and VOD
titles offered, value-added services, and familiarity with and ratings
