OTT Sports Service
"A rapid expansion in sports OTT growth requires either heavy external investment from a streaming distribution partner -- like a Google or Apple -- or a tiered business model that targets key consumers for all-access services."



It seems like this was not properly thought out. Where is the strategic plan, capability assessment, feasibility study.

Many companies are getting on board with OTT sports service but did they consider what they customers wants.

Re: ESPN?
Nortel lost its' way and forgot its' roots--as I see it.     The reason the current leading players (Alphabet/Google; Amazon et. al) continue to stay dominant because they have adopted Intel Co-Founder Andy Groove's Admonition to be "Paranoid"--a lesson that Intel itself and other chip makers have forgotten...

Enjoy the evening--and wishing you all in "TT Country" a Joyous Wednesday.

Re: ESPN?
@mpouraryan thank you, I do :) in my point as long as we follow the law whatever we agre with not... we live in normal society, but the second Co. try to bend the law or make it they own, we become lawless society and pay the price... other example would be Nortel - http://business.financialpost.com/news/fp-street/nortel-acquittals-prompted-rcmp-to-question-their-ability-to-combat-white-collar-crime

Re: ESPN?
That is kind of strange--it does not bode for the sense of flexibility necessary.    What is being done about it @bayte?   Are there any companies/startups on the cutting edge of transformation?

Re: ESPN?
@mhhf1ve  in my area - ISP terms of service that prevent users from using different IP addresses... as per user agrement from service provider... but I think it more like a city by law... as before in 1995 to 1999 satelite dish was not allowed only cable tv...

> "under Canadian law some hardware like this router not allowed by ISP.."

Do VPNs work differently in Canada? Or do ISPs block VPNs? Seems like nearly the same function can be done by a VPN, but I suppose the law might specify something I'm missing. 

Or is it just ther ISP terms of service that prevent users from using different IP addresses?

> " I did see router with automated IP changer build in by design..."

Why go to the trouble of buying hardware when you could just subscribe to a VPN?
