William Morris Endeavor - International Marketing Group (WME-IMG) bought the UFC earlier this month for $4 billion. WME-IMG is a conglomerate of two accomplished agencies: talent agency WME specializing primarily in movies, television, and music, and IMG’ focusing on management for international sports and events. Brothers and co-owners of the UFC, Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta, are stepping down after the sale is finalized, but Dana White will remain on in his current role as...
The BroadbandTV Event , co-located with the FTTH Connect, was where Tier two and three providers of fiber broadband internet service came to learn about content. I was privileged enough to moderate a panel on the Evolution of OTT with Robert Saunders (President & co-founder of Skitter TV) , Chris Lavin (CTO of ONE CONNXT), and Chris Beatson (CTO of NeoNova Networks). Millennials are always brought up in any discussion about over-the-top video services, and...
VidCon, online video's takeover of the Anaheim Convention Center, was interesting, thought provoking, educational, and honestly a lot of fun.

However, the demand for interesting content is strong enough that there are market opportunities for new OTT video players. Nearly 20% of U.K. broadband households have recently used a Netflix service, despite the free OTT catch-up...
 
It seems this fall has been a great time for streaming services in the United States.  Google has introduced its ad-free YouTube Red and YouTube Music services, available free of charge to Google Play subscribers, and now T-Mobile has expanded its unCarrier approach to video as well as music. I'm talking about T-Mobile's new Binge On feature, available to subscribers of T-Mobile's 6GB plans or higher.  Last year T-Mobile introduced Music Freedom, a feature that offered...
Earlier this month, Netflix made an unpopular (but at the same time necessary) decision to raise prices. The price hike was $1 per month and only applied to its second tier of service, which includes HD video and allows for two simultaneous video streams.
