All right, now let's get back to our content and check out the meaning and opportuinites of OTT.


What is OTT?

OTT, or Over-The-Top, refers to the delivery of film and TV content via the internet, bypassing traditional cable or satellite pay-TV services. Essentially, OTT means that content is provided 'over the top' of the internet service you already have, without needing a conventional broadcast, cable, or satellite TV provider.

The Rise of OTT

The OTT market has seen explosive growth. According to Statista, the global revenue from OTT video is expected to reach $210 billion by 2026, up from $155 billion in 2021. This growth is driven by the increasing demand for on-demand, high-quality content accessible on multiple devices.


How OTT Works

OTT platforms stream content directly over the internet, allowing viewers to watch on smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and computers. This contrasts with traditional cable or satellite services that require specific hardware and subscriptions. Examples of popular OTT services include Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Disney+.
