NPlay 2015: Local contents and multiscreen option to attract television users

Lower investment cost, be efficient and manage a successful operation from a low number of customers. With these concepts began the presentation "Pontis TV, IP TV deployments for cooperatives" by Leonardo Gioino, Executive VP of Sales and Marketing at Pontis Technologies.

He explained how the company’s platform works, with presence in Argentina and in different countries of the region and emphasized local content. He noted that his company offers radios, newspapers and local channels, plus transport information and pharmacies on duty, among others, to differentiate its service from other providers.

He also mentioned that a good experience across multiple platforms is a very important factor to consider. "More devices, more services, more content and greater interactivity to give the added value that the user demands," he said.

SME cable companies in Latin America, faced with the challenge of subsisting

Chambers from Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Colombia, Uruguay and Argentina participated in a virtual forum. The collection came to fall 50% in the first months of the pandemic in some cases. A "derogatory treatment" on the part of the programmers, who demand increases for the renewal of content contracts, even in this scenario is denounced. And in turn, these content providers become competitors of the cable companies as they transfer exclusive content from pay TV programming schedules to their own OTTs.
