Now that cable operators have started striking carriage deals with Netflix, Hulu and other OTT video players, the Berlin Wall between traditional pay-TV service and online video has finally begun to tumble. Cable providers are increasingly crafting broadband video packages and integrating Internet video content into their broader multiscreen video offerings. But providers are still seeking ways to make the most of their traditional TV programming by distributing across the ever-growing number of video devices. In this webinar, video experts will discuss how small and independent cable operators can manage and monetize their TV Everywhere offerings more efficiently and effectively with the help of NCTC and its partners.
