The Role

Data is a core advantage of OTT/Unicast TV over traditional broadcast. As platform operator we know exactly what content our users watch, how popular a show is and how many seconds of each and every ad campaign is viewed.

At Zattoo we already leverage a lot of our data (we process 6TB daily!) and still want to do more. We want to build day to day business decisions more on hard facts and less on gut feeling.
