Content Variety, Ease of Discovery, and Original Programming Drive Consumers to Recommend OTT Services

Deltatre sponsors session at Future of Video focused on direct-to-consumer video services

Parks Associates research shows the top three reasons why consumers would recommend their OTT service are content variety, ease of content discovery, and good original programming. Parks Associates will address the factors for success in the OTT video services ecosystem at the 2nd annual Future of Video: OTT, Pay TV, and Digital Media, December 9-11 in Marina del Rey, California, with the special session “Growing Success: TV Networks and Direct-to-Consumer Services,” sponsored by Deltatre.

Direct-to-consumer OTT services play a key role in the market strategies for TV industry players, including cable and broadcast networks and content producers. As adoption of these OTT services increases, companies must continue to innovate to remain successful. This special session, featuring speakers from Deltatre, CBS Interactive, Fandango, and You.i TV, will explore key learnings from OTT video services as well how services are adapting to continue their success, including social media engagement and live entertainment offerings.
