With faster internet and 4G technology, what lies ahead for TV operators in Asia?
ChannelNewsAsia.comreports out of Singapore that television has long been seen as the foremost medium for visual content.
But digitisation – the use of multiple devices and rapid smartphone penetration in Asia – has meant that audiences in the region have been consuming video content through online platforms such as YouTube.
This has challenged television as the dominant choice for consuming such entertainment options.
As American TV shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead gain popularity in the region, viewers are turning to tools such as Netflix and other streaming sites to view these hit series. Faster internet and 4G technology has resulted in consumers in Singapore, and the rest of the region, having the ability to watch the latest content on the latest devices, almost instantly.
