Streamers for Service Providers

Anthony Zuyderhoff November 19, 2020

CableTV_CCAP_imagesToday, service providers have a golden opportunity to adapt to consumer video viewing behaviors and deliver real value by providing a one-stop shop for all the popular streaming services.  The advantages are:

  • Easy to install and setup in minutes
  • Intuitive, easy to navigate user experience
  • Focus on sustainability with several eco-friendly features
  • Optional voice and universal search functionality for ease of discovery
  • Service provider quality of experience and support

CLICK TO TWEET: CommScope’s Anthony Zuyderhoff provides you with an inside look into streamers designed for service providers.

Several operators are already taking advantage of this opportunity by offering streamers to their subscribers. Streamers differ from traditional set-tops in being specifically cost-optimized for delivering streaming services; not equipped with tuners for cable, satellite or terrestrial broadcast television.

In this video, I spend a few minutes talking about what a streamer is, how service providers are deploying these devices to their subscribers and how CommScope is involved in this market.
