The onward march of residential IP video services has been one of the big industry stories of the last few years. Originally implemented as a way for telecom operators to launch pay-TV services targeted at set-top boxes (primarily seen as a defensive move to counter the entry of cable into the fixed broadband and telecom business), interest in IP video in recent years has been boosted hugely by the proliferation of devices capable of playing back video content and by improvements in fixed and mobile bandwidth.
A survey carried out by DVTE Intelligence found that: The vast majority of service providers had already launched or planned to launch IP video services in the near future, with the largest single group having launched a service over two years ago. Almost half were providing a companion IP video service linked to a pay-TV subscription, with about half that number again providing a pure OTT service.
