Marco Frattolin, Head of Operator Products, VEWD

Pay TV in Latin America faces growth headwinds as more consumers opt to forego a Pay TV subscription in favor of OTT services.

In this webinar, Vewd will discuss effective OTT aggregation strategies for operators to expand subscriber offerings. Special attention will be paid to:
1. Reaching “cord nevers” with targeted, affordable streaming devices or directly on the smart TV
2. Bringing OTT capabilities to entry-level or previously deployed set-top boxes
3. Gaming-as-a-service offerings
4. New content mixes to address subscriber needs

With the right combination of linear and OTT content, Pay TV operators are in prime position to meet the OTT challenge head-on and thrive. This webinar will highlight the must-have content and services to enable operator success in this rapidly changing environment.
