Oliver Davies, UKTV’s Head of Digital Products, takes a look at the evolution of the broadcaster’s video-on-demand services. From Dave OD in 2011 to today’s award-nominated UKTV Play, it has taken a reinvention of the team along the way to achieve the product’s current strong position. Davies and his colleagues have encountered branding head-scratchers, navigation challenges and some grand adventures in DRM in their unswerving quest for the perfect user experience!
