DTVE August/September issue 2015

Next up in this issue of DTVE we look at the emergence of hybrid delivery strategies to provide IP-based OTT content alongside pay TV services. Should operators invest in high-end hybrid CPE devices and what do they need to consider in order to ensure a return on investment?
