OTT Video in Asia-Pacific: Localized content and business models are key while mobile will offer opportunity for future video growth", a new Telecom Insider Report by GlobalData offers a thorough study of the OTT video


market in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The report analyzes different OTT video service providers operating in the region on parameters such as business model, content offerings, challenges and opportunities.

APAC features diverse markets with significant difference in penetration levels of smartphone, pay-TV and broadband. While developed countries have suitable environment for OTT video growth with developed telecom infrastructure, emerging countries show great potential on account of rollout of fiber and 4G technologies by operators, rising income levels and increasing penetration of low-priced smartphones. Hybrid models consisting of AVoD, SVoD or TVoD have been more successful in APAC. Widespread piracy makes the AVoD model important to attract people to legal video services. However, the arrival of international players Netflix and Amazon in 2016 has triggered the launch of a number of SVoD initiatives. Content remains the key to success in APAC, therefore both international and regional operators are heavily investing in acquisition and production of content.

* OTT video players in countries with lower OTT Readiness and Intensity scores should consider a hybrid model that includes AVoD to familiarize users to legal option to access videos across multiple platforms, before introducing paid service. The strategy has remained successful for regional OTT players such as Hotstar and Viu.
* Though extent of piracy in APAC makes AVoD an important model, however, high cost of acquiring content will drive adoption of SVoD and TVoD models to generate revenues.
