Kauser KanjiMay 7, 2020

Together with Bjarne Andre Myklebust of NRK, Kerensa Samanidis of M&E Digital Consulting and Allan McLennan of PADEM Media Group, we discussed the effect of the various national lockdowns on broadcaster, operator, pay-TV and service-provider roadmaps. Specifically, we talked about:

  • How broadcasters have reacted to the pandemic from an operational perspective
  • Whether VOD product development is now temporarily on hold
  • The mission-critical technology components in running an OTT service
  • And if strategically, the lockdown might lead to a sustained shift from linear to OTT viewing
