Infographic: 5 Reasons for Pay-TV Cloud Migration.
There are five main reasons why operators need to be considering migrating their pay-TV services to IP as a matter of urgency:
1) To respond to consumer demand to provide smart, on-demand TV services on any screen.
2) To increase screen reach and perceived value by delivering TV services to any device, at home and on the go – including retail CE devices such as smart TVs or streaming STB – thereby reducing traditional CPE investments.
3) To broaden their market footprint and allow them to go off-net and deliver content in a true OTT SVOD and multiscreen TV Everywhere model.
