About this event
Rethink TV analysts, Alex Davies and Rafi Cohen, will discuss the findings of our latest report, 'Live Sports OTT Security Forecast 2018-2026 '.
You will have the opportunity to put your questions to our analysts, during the audience Q&A session.
"Live Sports are the last bastion of Pay TV, held in high regard by operators & broadcasters, and the last service tethering customers to their cable & satellite packages. Operators know that it is a question of when not if, for when the sports leagues pull the trigger and pursue a D2C model – leaving operators to wither on the vine.
Sports leagues are now evaluating whether an OTT application with no middleman is a better profit margin and customer experience than relying on the operators and their respective deep pockets.
Accordingly, the market for the security software and services that cater to these OTT services will enjoy strong growth through the period, reaching $452 million by 2026. There are no surprises, in terms of regional performance, but across the board, the amount of Live Sports viewing that takes place on traditional linear TV is declining."
