AT&T, Hulu, & 20th Century Fox to Keynote Future of Video: OTT, Pay-TV and Digital Media

OTT services create major industry shifts in content distribution, advertising, partnerships, and video subscription services  

Parks Associates research shows 70% of U.S. broadband households now subscribe to an OTT service, compared to 79% with pay-TV services. The research firm will discuss the future landscape of OTT, pay TV, and digital media and strategies to enhance the viewer value proposition at its inaugural Future of Video: OTT, Pay TV, and Digital Media conference, December 10-12, in Marina del Rey, California.


Use of Devices to Watch Video in Past 30 Days | Parks Associates

"While consumers demand access to OTT video services on mobile devices, only about one-third of U.S. broadband households actually watched video on their mobile phones in the past 30 days,” said Brett Sappington, Senior Research Director, Parks Associates. “It is just one example of the complexities involved in offering video services today.”
