Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: Until recently, live broadcasting was only possible through IPTV networks managed by service providers, but OTT delivers video and audio data using the internet without the interference of service providers. Exploring new technology and revenue streams, operators are now trying to integrate OTT into STBs. Powerful mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have the capability to deliver OTT video services to consumers. OTT apps such as Hulu Plus, Netflix, etc. are becoming more popular among the consumer groups than TV Everywhere apps. The OTT Video market is expected to grow exponentially in the next five years. Some of the big players in this market are Apple HLS, Google WebM and Microsoft Silverlight Smooth Streaming.
