The rise of content and media intermediaries as digital gate-keepers raises major policy and regulation concerns. IIC members agree that consumer choice offers benefits. Does the trend towards non-bundled offers in pay TV threaten diversity, and what concerns remain for some types of content: national content in smaller markets, local reporting in larger markets? And, if regulation does create a level playing field between OTTs and telcos, will demand for local content naturally emerge and reward local players?
Access to content and high bandwidth applications in an era of convergence at the service, infrastructure and policy level. This talk took place on Thursday 28th May 2015 as part of the IIC Telecommunications & Media Forum in Miami.
