The way we watch TV is changing as well as our demands for quality, interaction, personalized services and offerings. As more premium content becomes available online, more viewers are logging on, rather than tuning in, to watch their favorite TV Show or movie online.
Video consumption continues to skyrocket where devices like tablets and Connected TVs, set the agenda for the continuing growth of online video viewing, especially for long form content. Consumption of long-form online video content has taken a big leap the last couple of months and will continue to rise as viewers watch increasing amounts of online video content over connected devices like tablets, smartphone and connected tv’s. This is also in line with the annual analysis of the Nordic streaming market conducted by Xstream, which shows that more than 50% of online video views in 2012 came from smartphones and tablets.

With a numbers of TV Everywhere/ OTT TV/ VOD services, and even more to come, users get more options to choose from, their user behavior are evolving rapidly and their demands and expectations for a personalized service with innovative features will increase.
