DTVE February issue 2016

DTVE-Feb16-1Despite the challenges posed by millennials’ viewing habits, non-linear viewing and the multiscreen video consumption, satellite operators have continued to defy the odds and prosper.

In this issue of Digital TV Europe, we focus on various ways that the satellite business is continuing to stay relevant.

We assess the current state of UHD TV – likely to drive demand for satellite bandwidth in mature markets – and look at some of the issues currently occupying the minds of those involved in developing services.

We look at how satellite operators are working with DTH pay TV providers and free-to-air broadcasters on ways to future-proof their services against the falling cost of OTT deliver and the challenge posed by multiscreen viewing of both on-demand and live content.

Finally, we look at the future of occasional use services, focusing in particular on preparations for the Rio Olympic Games.

Also in this issue, we look at some of the technologies that will be demonstrated at the forthcoming NAB Show in Las Vegas and provide our usual round-up of the top industry news.
