Netflix CEO Reed Hastings shook the OTT streaming video world at last week’s Economic Times Global Business Summit in New Delhi, declaring that their next 100 million SVOD subscribers will be Indian. This proclamation should be very welcome news to India telecoms whom own internet infrastructure as Netflix’s success in India will drive highly-profitable broadband plans and open doors to offer existing IPTV lineups made available across many connected devices. No doubt, Amazon and other international OTT streaming services will not be far behind Netflix in one of the world’s most strategic markets which boasts hundreds of millions of mobile accounts.
Of course, it will be critical for local telecoms to utilize an IPTV/OTT technology platform which maximizes network capacity with speedy time to market, even as operators race to deploy bigger and better networks alongside affordable internet access plans.
