Cable and satellite
Adding delight today, enhancing innovation for the future
Cable multiple system operators (MSOs) are staring at the changing face of a convergent industry. It's a clash now of content versus context, daily disruptions versus timely innovations, and ‘immersive’ experiences versus ‘lean back’ viewing. With the digital evolution here to stay, enterprises must channelize information technology to aid them in crafting a future where they deliver performance, delight and entertainment – in ways only they can.
Challenges and opportunities
Anytime, anywhere, any device content delivery: MSOs have developed a complex system of services, which allows them to deliver solo services or bundled services that could include television, Internet, telephony, and mobile services. They must now strategize and find the right mix to amplify their chances of winning across channels and technologies.
Between technologies and expectations: With newer digital devices, Internet TV and WiMAX flooding the market, consumers are demanding more. MSOs must address their limited bandwidth and explore new services like HD and 3D TV to enhance customer experience and boost existing revenues.
