Transition from Traditional Media to OTT Platforms

For a long time, sports broadcasting has been a driving force of the traditional television. For instance, an average American customer spends over 4 hours a week in watching sports programs, which is quite a high rate.

However, the rise of platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sling TV, and Playstation Vue offers a compelling alternative to the traditional television.

Advantages of OTT Platforms

Unlike traditional television, OTT (Over-The-Top) platforms present an environment specifically tailored to individual viewers.

A study by Insider Intelligence reveals that 47.6 million US households, out of a total of 125 million, have abandoned traditional cable television. According to the same source, it’s projected that by the end of 2023, more than half of the population, 54.4% will abandon traditional cable television.

High-speed internet and the surge in the quality and quantity of smart devices have provided viewers with freedom to access the desirable content on the terms they want.  

The most attractive feature is the removal of time and place restrictions in this space. It doesn’t matter if you are traveling or at home, you can be a participant of the desired sports event, with the desired device, at the desired time.

I'm a sports writer and football commentator at Setanta Sports with five years of experience. The view, moreover, axiom that sport is more than just physical activity or something like that involves me from head to toe in this industry and becomes an inseparable part of my life.
