OTT Digi-tainment- A “sneak-peek” into Israeli Technology

Posted by: Kavitha Saravanan

The global pandemic has been a mixed bag of outcomes for technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) businesses. As with most sectors, disruptions to supply chains and the economic slowdown are likely to have a negative impact on these businesses. However, there has been an upswing in the demand for digital services across sectors in response to the changing consumption habits and need for ensuring business continuity. Within TMT, the hardest hit segments are likely to be those that monetise social and physical interaction – such as cinema, hospitality, sports/events and out-of-home advertising (OOH) advertising. Telecom operators offering the critical commodity of reliable connectivity are reasonably isolated from the COVID-19 fallout.

As people are forced to work remotely, enterprises are expected to accelerate their pace of digitisation, powered by cloud, automation, artificial intelligence and big data. Thus, the other segments that are likely to benefit are over-thetop (OTT) players, internet service providers (ISPs), data warehousing companies. The new ‘at home’ environment has led to a significant rise in over-the-top (OTT) viewership, including paid subscriptions, as compared to the pre-COVID period.
