Three surprising ways to build-in flexibility for the future of OTT

The pace of change in streaming is dizzying. In just a few short years, we’ve seen many of streaming’s most accepted truths being overturned: Netflix and Disney+ have added ad-supported subscription tiers, and Amazon’s become one of the world’s biggest sports rights holders.

Meanwhile, FAST channels have exploded in popularity around the world despite the long-held assumption that the convenience of VoD had killed linear viewing.
