In 2022, our 1st TV option will be ‘OTT’. Is your TV compatible with it?

There are four types of TV viewing options: terrestrial, satellite, cable and internet. With the widespread and accessible internet, OTT, which is the most comfortable option, has started to be preferred more.


OTT (Over The Top) is defined as watching the media and all kinds of content over the internet without cable and antenna. Your television should be compatible with this and it should be compatible for a long time. The most known operating system in this regard and the tool that allows you to watch the broadcasts on your television without any problems is the Android system. Google developed this system and offered it to our service, but it is not very innocent, in fact, it contains a lot of commercial income.


Its rival, IOS, works more widely on mobile. In other words, while IOS is preferred more for the display on mobile phones, Android is preferred for televisions. When buying a television, it is necessary to research well whether the software hidden in it is licensed. We must make sure that a television produced by a company that has a contract with Google is purchased. Otherwise, future software updates will make your broadcasts unwatchable and it will be possible for your television to become idle.


Internet television has made itself more prominent with the increase in platforms. There are movies and serials shot only for broadcasting on the internet. Now there are movies that we can watch whenever we want and leave it unfinished and continue later. This comfort is only possible with internet TV.


Now we will have much faster internet with fiber internet and 5G, whose preparations have been completed in mobile.


The internet, which is still at the top of TV viewing options, is also the leader in platform subscriptions. This situation does not change in our country and all over the world.


It is expected that all platforms will be broadcasting on the internet in the next decade.


Even in the worst geographical situation, 5G will be at least 100 times faster than the internet speed we use now. Thus, we will have the opportunity to watch 4K, 8K and even 16K images in a very short time. So, high speed internet will start a revolution in video streaming quality.


The giants of the media and the most well-known movie companies will find their place on internet TV. We can see the closest examples to this with the applications that appear as shortcuts on our smart televisions.


We will not only get used to watching TV, but also to smart solutions at home with simultaneous smart TV. TV will become the operating system of the house. With the voice command Google Assistant, all electronic and electrical systems will become manageable. If you don’t want to miss this, you should definitely search for a Google license when buying a smart TV. It is not difficult to research this. The license of the brand can be queried from Google. For an easier way, you can ask TUYAD.


Viewer habits and TV viewing ratings can also be reported very easily from here. Of course, national channels are a service that governments all over the world have the society watch as a social project. While subscription is required for other encrypted broadcasts and premium content, FREE IP TV broadcasts are offered to you free of charge and with the simple application of your TV manufacturer.


When we say OTT platforms, don’t just think of internationally known ones. Each country’s own broadcast bundles carry their service to the internet over time and are primarily preferred here. This is what happened in Turkey. Although Netflix had an overwhelming subscriber dominance at first, local Blu TV soon became the leader.


OTT is the leader in many aspects such as broadcast quality, content placement and management.


By 2022 and beyond, the content industry will be faster and higher quality. Platforms that fail to do this are doomed to perish and remain far behind.


OTT will mean the most economical use for the internet, which offers not only images but simultaneously music, smart data collection and smart solutions.
