It is unnecessary to have a DVB-T2 antenna, a cable run to your household, or a satellite dish on your balcony to receive such broadcasts: all you need is your favorite gadget, such as a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop, or an in-car multimedia system.

The great hook from the 1971 song by Gill Scott-Heron never felt so apt when we think of it in context to the streaming revolution that we are witnessing today. A phenomenon which was spearheaded by Netflix and Hulu about a decade ago has now gone mainstream. On-demand content has broken linear viewing schedules and led traditional broadcasters to rethink their business model around this change. With vast improvements in internet speeds and an increase in the number of video-supporting handheld devices, consumers have shifted their focus from traditional television broadcasters to over-the-top (OTT) media services that stream over the internet.
