Smaller TV Channels Could Make Cost-Effective Transition to OTT-Only Delivery in Five to 10 YearsJanuary 29, 2013For many individual channels that have small- or medium-sized audiences, a switch to over-the-top (OTT) streaming as their sole means of video delivery could become an option over the long term.
However, it’s currently not cost effective for television channels with large numbers of viewers to move to OTT-only video delivery, according to an IHS Screen Digest Insight Report from information and analytics provider IHS (NYSE: IHS).
An analysis of the U.K. television market reveals that about two-thirds of the country’s major channels potentially could afford to switch to a unicast OTT-only delivery model five to 10 years in the future. Of the 192 channels rated by the Broadcasters' Audience Research Board (BARB), only 58 have such large audiences that moving to a pure-OTT approach would be cost ineffective for the foreseeable future.
Even so, the remaining 134 are candidates that could eschew traditional pay-TV platforms and move to OTT delivery in standard definition (SD).
