Study: Driven by Netflix and other SVOD providers, global OTT revenues to double to $51B by 2020

Revenue from OTT services is set to nearly double to $51.1 billion globally during the next five years, according to the latest Digital TV Research report, which covers 64 countries.

Tracking the collapse of linear TV: Cable looks to VOD, TV Everywhere to counter OTT

Netflix asks FCC to reject AT&T-DirecTV merger

Netflix has asked the Federal Communications Commission to reject the $49 billion merger of AT&T and DirecTV. Netflix executives told more than 20 FCC staffers last week, "The proposed merger would make AT&T the largest (multichannel video programing distributor) in the country, and potentially lead to its becoming the largest (Internet service provider) in the country as well."
