How to Build a Hybrid Pay TV/OTT Service

There is much debate about the threat of Over the Top (OTT) video to Pay TV business models, but there is also the potential to build a hybrid model. Initiatives like Comcast's Fancast Internet TV portal and the recent deal by Sky and Microsoft to leverage Xbox as a hybrid OTT/Pay TV set top box, show that there may be room to build solutions that leverage the best of both worlds. In this breakfast panel, we will discuss what it will take to build hybrid solutions that are both attractive to consumers and sustain business viability. Considerations will include a discussion of changing consumer behavior, content walled gardens versus open video browsers, changing user interfaces and remote controls, subscription and authentication models, interactive advertising, hardware platforms, and home networking options for bridging the gap between the Internet and the home's TVs. A snapshot of current OTT models will be provided, including the various OTT set-top box platforms and Widgets-enabled TVs.
