Burkett continues “Broadcast channels were once only the domain of physical broadcasters, but now on-demand channels such as OTT opens a wide range of possibilities for organizations wishing to monetize their content. It can be sports clubs, but also theatres and other companies with content they want to make available on demand. An OTT solution from StreamViral is ideal.”
