Glenn Hower, Research Analyst, Parks Associates is presenting on May 28 at 1 PM ET during this Webinar: Using Cloud-Based Technologies to Drive the Media Experience of the Future hosted by Rovi.

With cord-cutting concerns on the rise, TV service providers are taking steps to retain market share and reduce churn among customers. The set-top box (STB) remains the primary access point for the consumer to content through their service provider, but market developments have led to a push for virtualizing STB functions. As the technology environment improves to support scalable cloud-based functions, providers will need to deliver virtualized functions along with features and capabilities that excite, attract and retain customers.

An opportunity exists for TV service providers to create a seamless cross-platform experience that delivers content with high-quality features and functions that today’s consumers are coming to expect as we move from an emulated experience to a truly portable experience.
