HBO content offers Ziggo chance to create OTT SVOD service

Tuesday 4 October 2016 | 12:03 CET | Author: Kamiel Albrecht | Market Commentary
The upcoming end to HBO Netherlands that gives exclusive access to HBO content for the Dutch market to Dutch cable network operator Ziggo is an opportunity for the cable operator to launch its own over the top SVOD service to compete with Netflix and RTL-owned Dutch SVOD service Videoland. The SVOD service can target customers of other TV operators as they no longer have access to HBO content from 1 January 2017, while Ziggo could set up a special HBO channel for existing Ziggo TV customers and include HBO content in the VOD library of Horizon TV.
