IPTV operator investments may shift

As IPTV operators move beyond the first-phase build-outs of their networks, they are keying in on adding value for customers. As a result, they may find themselves weighing a variety of different focuses for their ongoing IPTV investements, according to new research from ABI Research. 

"In the current economic climate, allocation of capital and resources is becoming a difficult proposition for all IPTV operators as they consider more fiber and back-office investments," said ABI Research principal analyst Robert Clark, in a press release. "Broadband, mobile, online gaming and storage, and home networking, in addition to the professional and technical services support that can be required to deliver multi-play offers seamlessly, are becoming intricately tied to IPTV operators' success."
