    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), is another name that’s broken new ground in the over the top market by compiling several television channels into an entire package and then selling that package at a price less than what it would cost a cable subscriber to watch the same channels via a traditional coaxial or satellite cable broadcast. Sony Corp (NYSE:SNE) has even jumped into the fray with what it’s calling Vue, which delivers a fw different packages of cable television services over the internet… including the all-important network broadcasts from some of the major network names.


    More competitors will certainly pop up too.

    Though what the OTT market will look like is still being defined, one hard-to-see reality is finally starting to be appreciated by consumers. That is, as much choice as over-the-top television seemd to create, we now recognize we didn’t and still don’t have that much. The advent of so many other products and players in just the past few months has proven that.

    Take Netflix as an example. What a subscriber gets is what a subscriber gets. That is access to the same content that viewers from half a world away get. Although all of its is high quality digital content, subscribers have no choice as to what they can access; there’s no customization or different typoes of products for different kinds of viewers. The same goes for Hulu.


    Other services like Sony Vue and Sling TV partially address that shortcoming by offering access to a variety of television channels, many with a unique focus. Both companies still only offer big nationwide bundles, though, and like traditional cable services, most subscribers are likely not interested all of the available programming they’re actually paying for. In the meantime, CBS All Access and HBO Go offer high quality content, but not necessarily a lot of content. All of it comes from the CBS library and the Time Warner library of movies and shows.


    The next

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    The phrase “over the top television,” or its abbreviation “OTT,” aren’t new terms. The phrase was created shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television services less than a decade ago. The over-the-top battle didn’t get intense, however, until very recently. Now that it has though, stand back…. sparks are starting to fly.

    They’ll be flying for a while too, if a young and hungry startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has its way. Netflix, Hulu (which is jointly owned by Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA)) and all the other new players in the OTT arena may want to look behind them. In the meantime, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the big money in the OTT business is going to be made over the course of the coming decade. OTTV is well positioned to become a centerpiece of the over-the-top television race.


    Netflix isn’t the dominant player it once was in the Internet-delivered television industry. To be fair, it was the first on the scene, and set the pace while it was carving out the biggest piece of this market. In the meantime thouhg, it’s largely become a commodity, opening the door for new players and new kinds of delivery vehicles.

    For example, aside from Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has gotten into the game with a new service called CBS All Access. The product allows subscribers – for a nominal monthly fee – access a great deal of old and new CBS video content via the internet. And HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has garned a small crowd with a subscription-based Internet television product called HBO Go.


    Yet anopther one is Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH). It’s really broken new ground in the over- the-top market by assembling several television channels into an entire package — including live network broadcasts — and then selling that packa
