Using Castkom’s Video Streaming services, Indian Television’ IDOS 2015 was Live Streamed and the video is hosted on demand. The pressure is mounting on traditional distribution of audiovisual content. Phase I and Phase II digitalisation have been implemented though many issues require resolution from players across the ecosystem, including commercial and policy practices. The Phase III and IV deadlines are approaching and a major impetus is needed from all the participants to meet them. At the same time, DTH and satellite TV continues to grow and readies itself for the next phases of digitalization but the DTH industry’s future growth, health and commercial dynamics also require changes on the ground and in policy. Meanwhile, cable & satellite distribution is facing new challenges on the horizon: over the top services and broadcast network based apps and the impending rollout of 4G services by Airtel, Vodfone, and Reliance Industries. IDOS 2015 reflects on the status of the ecosystem and brings together key stakeholders to challenge, debate and provide resolution on the key catalysts to drive the next, profitable wave of digitalization that drives value for consumer and industry, alike.
