The internet today has become the default platform for the on-demand delivery and consumption of movies, TV programs, user-generated videos, music, games, ebooks and nearly every other type of electronic media.

From the techcropped-resized_logo_300_blue.jpgnical challenges of delivering millions of concurrent streams to the exponential growth in mobile media consumption, from the valuation of live and linear digital rights to measurement and monetization models, rights owners, advertisers, content aggregators and service providers today face similar and overlapping challenges as live and linear content increasingly goes “over-the-top.”

We aggregate and curate all the top news and analysis from around the web on the emerging business of live, linear and over-the-top media distribution and delivery to help you stay abreast of this dynamic area.
