The OTT market is set to reach US$8 billion by 2020, more than doubling in size from US$3 billion today. While the traditional linear TV market is still dominant in Asia­Pacific, the likes of HBO and Netflix are looking at the region’s OTT market as a source of growth, and local players are adapting offers to cope with consumers’ desires for internet TV on demand.
