Why today? Mobile Operators want to push their subscribers to switch from 2G to 2.5G & 3G services. Aim of Mobile Operators: increase consumer data consumption and their ARPU by offering easy to use applications and attractive services. Strategy for 2004 & 2005: Focus on value adding services, including video content, to give evidence to switch to 2.5G and 3G platforms. Content acquisition is key for the success of the Operators strategies. Operators need to have addictive content to push data consumption and lead the customers to log on several times per day.
FTVs quick development is due to its technologically at the edge policy: A primary network in MPEG2 (Eutelsat HotBird, Asiasat, Intelsat, EuroBird) to ease the delivery of the signal to cable networks & DTH platforms; Key terrestrial free to air agreements aimed at increase the channels popularity; A complementary broadcast in MPEG4 (partnership with Eutelsat) for the broadband operators; Why today?
