Un Mercado en Busca de su Prime Time (A Market Looking for Prime Time)

Date: Apr 20, 2016 By Manuel Parera. El sector argentino de Over-The-Top (OTT) movió alrededor de u$s 45 millones en 2015 y se espera que crezca a más del doble para 2018. Con novedades constantes, la lucha se plantea en las redes, para asegurar la calidad y velocidad de streaming. La discusión por el mercado de servicios de televisión online fue el eje del encuentro Nplay, realizado en Córdoba. Allí, cableoperadores y productores de contenidos plantearon un punto clave: la competencia por muchos considerada “desleal” de Netflix, a la cabeza de los servicios de Over The Top (OTT), y la necesidad de una…

Micropayments Are a Bigtime Fail for E-Publishers

Date: Apr 18, 2016

PaymentSource. By Gene Hoffman. Consumers are winning the battle with online publishers, thanks to easy ad-blocking software that lets them surf the sites they want free from annoying ads. While publishers are turning to micropayments to gain revenue, that strategy also has holes. One study found that in 2015 alone publishers lost $21.8 billion due to ad-blocking software.

Many are now requiring site visitors to disable their ad-blocking software or shell out a…

But CBS managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory when its All Access service crashed under the load, preventing some users from accessing the live feed. CBS placed the blame on a third-party location services provider that had issues verifying user location. Still, the…

As Competition for VoD Subscribers Hots up, How Can Providers Stand out?

Date: Feb 17, 2016

TVBEurope. By Adrian Jenkins. The OTT sector is in rude health. According to German research firm Statista, in October 2015, Netflix alone boasted 67 million paid subscribers in North America. While the European figures aren’t quite as rosy, the company is still estimated to have snagged 12 million users in the three main markets of Germany, France and the UK, with the number growing all the time. With statistics like these, it’s perhaps no surprise that other companies are trying to replicate Netflix’s model, not to mention its success. Whether it’s from new entities such as Amazon Prime, established broadcasters…
