European Communications launches OTT digital content survey

European Communications has launched its latest survey of the digital content space, looking at the current relationship between telcos and OTT providers.

It is two years since we last looked into this key area, so we are looking to benchmark what progress has been made.

For example, a fragmented European market was viewed as the biggest barrier to monetising content in 2013.

Since then, significant M&A activity has been accompanied by a large number of partnerships being signed between network operators and the likes of Netflix, Spotify and numerous broadcasters.

The new survey looks at areas including the main drivers for providing digital content, what RoI telcos are getting, who operators regard as the biggest competitor and the impact of net neutrality.

The results plus analysis of the survey will appear in the Q3 issue of European Communications magazine, which is due out in September.

The survey forms part of a special report into the digital content space, and features an exclusive interview with KPN’s Director of TV Diederik Rosenbaum who discusses the operator’s new OTT TV app.

European Communications will also hold a seminar in London that will bring together the telecoms community to discuss and share best practice on the digital content sector.
