The Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming services industry is rapidly evolving, and services are becoming increasingly accessible for a wide range of content creators, including sports, media, publishing organizations, musicians, influencers, events and knowledge institutes.

The Netflix Revolution: Content Monetization

Netflix’s transition from a traditional video rental service to an online streaming giant marked the beginning of a new era in content consumption. This model not only changed how we access movies and shows but also opened up a new realm of possibilities for content creators looking to monetize their offerings.

The Early Challenges of OTT Services

Initially, creating an OTT service was a daunting and expensive task. It involved assembling a specialized team or expensive hiring system integrators. There was a need for optimizing transcoding for various devices and connections, building comprehensive systems for transcoding, Digital Rights Management (DRM), packaging, and setting up a global Content Delivery Network (CDN) strategy. Add to that the development of video management systems, user interfaces for multiple devices, and integrating user and subscription management systems. The technical complexity and cost were immense.

The New Era of Accessibility

Now, thanks to technological innovations, partnerships, and investments, launching an OTT service is more accessible than ever. What used to take years of work and a significant budget can now be achieved in days, and at a fraction of the cost.
