      Overview of the Over-the-top TV market
    • OVERVIEW OF THE OVER-THE-TOP TV MARKET
      Definitions
      Over-the-Top TV (OTT TV): delivery of web video content directly to TV sets.
      IPTV (Internet Protocol TV): consists of packaged Pay-TV offers similar to those on satellite and cable but offered over an Internet connection.
      Catch-up TV: online services from TV broadcasters or TV operators that allow users to “catch- up” on TV series on demand.
      Transaction Video-on-Demand (T-VoD): a service that allows users to rent films and/or TV show on demand, charging a fee for each rental.
      Subscription Video-on-Demand (S-VoD): VoD service that charges a flat monthly subscription fee for viewing of films and TV shows.
    • OVERVIEW OF THE OVER-THE-TOP TV MARKET
      Three main factors that are key to OTT TV diffusion:
      Increased penetration of broadband connections
      High-quality online video content (i.e. catch-up TV, VoD)
      Replacement of old devices with those that are Internet-connected (i.e. Smart TV sets such as Google TV)

      Summary of consumers using the Internet through their TV set
      The are generally young adult males that have achieved higher education.
      They are more likely to use social media to communicate with the world around them than the average global consumer.
      They are generally more interested in new consumer technologies than the average global consumer.
      Internet TV users are also nearly four times more likely to be early adopters of new technologies than the average consumer, and they almost always have a more positive outlook on the effect the Internet has on society.

    • GOOGLE TV
      What is it and is it important?
    • GOOGLE TV
      SEARCH THE TV SET
      • Allows users to search the Web, EPG, DVR for any given TV show, actor, genre, etc.;
      • Problem: DVR search is completely integrated only with Dish Network in the United States;
      • Problem: reports of inaccurate and unexpected search results;
      • Still, the concept of being able to search the entirety of the Web for any given programme or film using keywords is a powerful tool.

    • GOOGLE TV
      THE INTERNET ON THE TV SET
      • Google TV users now have the entirety of the Internet available on their TV set;
      • Using the Google Chrome Web browser users can access any website and even play flash video using Adobe Flash 10.1;
      Google Chrome Web Browser
      • Website owners have the option to build dedicated websites that are adapted for TV viewing;
      • Problem: browsing the Web is a personal activity as opposed to TV, which is often viewed in the company of others. A laptop or tablet PC is more conducive to TV viewer multitasking.
      Images from Google
    • GOOGLE TV
      APPS ON THE TV SET
      • Apps on the TV set offering everything from video content (S-VoD, T-VoD, Web video) to Web radio to social networking;
      • At first, apps for Google TV come preloaded, but beginning in early 2011, apps will be available from the android market;
      • Apps are a key to making Google TV work. If they run smoothly and don’t detract from the viewing experience, they will be an excellent addition.

    • GOOGLE TV
      RECENT GOOGLE TV NEWS
      • American broadcasters block Google TV users from accessing their online web video services.
      • The catch-up TV and VoD service Hulu (joint venture between News Corp., Disney, and NBC Universal) has also blocked Google TV, and Hulu Plus is still not available.
      • More hardware partners have recently been announced.
    • GOOGLE TV’S MAIN COMPETITORS

    • GOOGLE TV’S MAIN COMPETITORS
      APPLE TV
      • Apple TV allows users to download content from the iTunes store (walled-garden business approach);
      • Apple TV comes with a selection of built-in apps:
      • Apple TV allows North American users to access Netflix;
      • The Apple TV can also be controlled with an iOS device and content viewing synced using AirPlay.
      Images from Apple
    • GOOGLE TV’S MAIN COMPETITORS
      YAHOO! CONNECTED TV
      • Yahoo! Connected TV runs most of the same devices as Google TV:
      • Yahoo! TV Widgets can run discreetly on the TV set.
      • The platform is centered around Yahoo!’s Konfabulator widget engine, which was originally developed for the PC. This means that widgets are easily written for the TV using existing code;
      • Yahoo! has recently announced that it is launching a Yahoo! Connected TV store and has already released the SDK;

    • GOOGLE TV’S MAIN COMPETITORS
      ROKU
      • The Roku player is a set-top box that is simple and cheap compared to other devices with similar spec (starting at $59.99);
      • Roku has, arguably, the best line-up of online content available:
      • No social networking apps other than photo apps including Facebook photos and Flickr;
      • Likely the best value option for consumers looking just for OTT TV services.

    • MULTI-TASKING A BETTER OPTION
      Multi-tasking and interacting with the TV via other devices

    • MULTI-TASKING A BETTER OPTION
      MULTI-TASKING A BETTER OPTION FOR CONSUMING WEB CONTENT WHILE WATCHING TV?
      Survey found that social media actually encourages linear TV viewing so as to avoid spoilers from friends.

      Note: Survey conducted among 3,000 UK “digitally enabled” households

      OTHER WAYS TO INTERACT WITH THE TV USING WEB BASED CONTENT

    • CONCLUSION
      So the future of television is...
    • CONCLUSION
      Not Google TV in its present form
      A less intrusive model such as Yahoo! Connected TV is better for delivering non-video Web content to a screen being viewed by multiple people.
      A walled-garden system such as Apple TV or Roku offers content providers security and a guaranteed revenue stream.
      Multi-tasking will continue to grow, and using social networking services such as Facebook or Twitter while watching TV are more suited to individual use on a separate device (i.e. tablet PC or laptop).
