OTT credential sharing will rob providers of $500 million

OTT video service credential sharing will cost the industry $500 million in direct revenues worldwide in 2015, according to new research from Park Associates.

The report titled The Cost of Piracy shows 6% of US broadband households use an OTT video service that is paid by a person living outside of the household.

“Credential sharing has a measurable impact on video services, particularly in the OTT video service area, where young subscribers are active,” said Glenn Hower, research analyst, Parks Associates.

“The impact on OTT video revenues is especially troublesome as OTT providers are investing large sums of money to boost their original content offerings,” said Hower.
