What are Over-the-top (OTT) services? 
Here’s what you should know:

  • OTT is a service used to stream TV onto a computer, tablet, smartphone, or any other internet-connected device.
  • OTT is available through apps and websites such as Netflix or Hulu and physical hardware like Amazon Fire Stick or Apple TV.
  • OTT is gaining in popularity because the devices are built into most newer television sets, making them convenient and easy to use.
  • OTT providers offer original content, and consumers can save money if they’re willing to give up live shows and events.

There is a shift from watching only “traditional” TV to stacked services, but it’s not as rapid as you may think. And it’s definitely not an all-or-nothing battle between the two.
