I'm not seeing CBSSN on Fubo. Am I missing it, or have they dropped the channel?

then, aren't you illegally watching licensed content which hasn't been paid for? This is piracy, and I'm too old to go to jail and pay fines for silly stuff.

Pretty much. Who is still doing this with all the cheap options available?

This stuff just sounds like alternative streaming options for content you can already get through cable tv.

It's not an official FCC term. So people use it to mean different things.
People do use it to mean different things in these conversations, but it IS a term that is broader than just video content or internet media in general. Techopedia does a good job of describing the term in its broader use:
Quote: Definition - What does Over-the-Top Application (OTT) mean?

An over-the-top (OTT) application is any app or service that provides a product over the Internet and bypasses traditional distribution. Services that come over the top are most typically related to media and communication and are generally, if not always, lower in cost than the traditional method of delivery.

So calling someone on Whatsapp instead of paying a telecom company for a telephone call is also "OTT".

RE: An Analysis of TV OTT Platforms
I should've put this post in this thread too ... didn't see it got stickied until now.


https://www.reuters.com/article/us-sprin...SKBN19I1JW

Quote:Sprint Corp's (S.N) talks with Charter Communications Inc (CHTR.O) and Comcast Corp (CMCSA.O) about a wireless partnership added another layer of uncertainty to the outlook for potential deals in the cable and telecommunications sector.

Sprint, controlled by Japan's SoftBank Group Corp (9984.T), has entered into a two-month period of exclusive negotiations with Charter and Comcast, while putting merger talks with T-Mobile US Inc (TMUS.O) on hold until the end of July, sources told Reuters late on Monday.


It's like I said in another thread, all the major pay TV companies and wireless companies are going to come together into three or four mega brands.

- AT&T is already solidified, with its acquisition of DirecTV
- Verizon is still out there without having acquired a major payTV company yet (I think Dish & Sling make a lot of sense ... perhaps renaming Sling to "DISH Now")

That leaves Charter and Comcast, on the payTV side, and Sprint and TMobile on the wireless side.



Perhaps the "staying alive" strategy of payTV could actually be to link it to wireless. IE, just like wireless carriers now essentially force you to have a data plan ... maybe they'll just start forcing people to have a TV plan on top of that, with no data usage for streaming TV on mobile devices in the plan?

Yeah ... if traditional payTV wants to stay in the game ... they're going to have to get on board with offering a product in the $20-30-40/month tiers, like the streaming services.

As always, bundling is their best bet to get more $$$ per customer.

This ties-in the auction of the UHF channels 37 and above to the wireless carriers. Seems the could start up new viewing experiences with the wireless companies (i.e. Mobile TV).
Suck for the 1,000 or so TV Stations that have to relocate to channels 36 or lower.

However, the article also states the 4k broadcasting could be sped up...they will really boost up the OTA stations for those that can afford the equipment to broadcast in uncompressed 4k. Most antennas sold already are 4k ready.
