The battle for TV customers: will spending on original content pay off?

Wednesday 18 January 2017 | 14:46 CET | Author: Sanne de Bruyckere, Tim Poulus | Background
Following the introduction of Netflix in 2013, the launch of Ziggo Sport in 2015 and the battle between Fox Sports and KPN in 2016, the telecom market in the Netherlands is set to even more about video in 2017. NLziet is expected to introduce its live TV offering this year, turning it from a sVOD service to a full competitor for pay-TV providers. MVNO Youfone is also entering the TV market with plans to launch its own OTT service in 2017, following a similar offering from Lycamobile.
