NomadTV: Anyone Can Create & Operate Their Own OTT Service

– Use As Is or Customize with No Up-front Fees
– Supports Multiple Platforms including Chromecast
– What Are the Implications for the Broadband & Home Network Industries?

Could every company eventually have its own OTT service? Or, even individuals? And, if that happens, what would the implications for the broadband and home network industries?

Most mid-size and larger companies and every government entity has a library of videos – or could create them easily and inexpensively with today’s easy-to-use smartphones – on topics the outside world would like to see – everything from PR to product information to training to procedures to educational to, well, you name it.

Nomads, which provides software tools for the rapid development of “white label” OTT video services, has launched NomadTV, which companies and individuals that own video content can use to create their own brand of Netflix-like apps for mobile and Web connected devices.

It supports the most popular OTT business models, including ads, subscriptions and pay-per-view monetization. It works on popular platforms – iOS, Android and Windows – as well as Chromecast.

Nomads CEO Andrej Kostresevic said, “The cost of entry into an Internet-based OTT distribution model is much lower than broadcast, and we know consumer expectations about being able to access video when and where they want it is a top driver of that shift.”

Nomads, based in Miami and Los Angeles, says customers can get their OTT service up and running with no upfront payments to Nomads, only pay-as-you-go pricing, and within a matter of weeks. Think of the many small studios and up-start video would-be directors to whom that will appeal. And bloggers that want to offer ad-supported videos.
