Turkcell Streams Through Video Transformation
Turkish operator Turkcell has successfully transformed itself into a digital service provider, so much so that it is offering its over-the-top services to other operators looking to do the same. One of the elements of its suite of eight OTT apps is its mobile streaming TV business, a complement to its IPTV platform. (See Turkcell Invites Telcos to Share in OTT Success .)
Viewing habits on mobile are very different from big-screen TV habits, Baris Zavaroglu, Turkcell's Digital Media and Entertainment director, explained in a video interview recorded at this year's Mobile World Congress. By offering services on both platforms, tailored to how its customers use each, he says that Turkcell has built a business case around video that is based upon driving more data usage on its network.
Zavaroglu discussed the service, and Turkcell's digital strategy, with Telecoms.com's Scott Bicheno at MWC. Check out the video below for more.
