THE DISTRIBUTION OF CONTENTS
IN THE HYBRID MULTIPLATAFORMAS

Background and context:

The second decade of this century will come with immense challenges, changes, uncertainties, threats but also great opportunities for the entire sector of Information and Communication Technologies.

The content distribution models changed completely, not only because of the large number of platforms on which they can be consumed or received, but also because of the evolution of the distribution networks that, while simplifying and becoming totally dependent from Internet.

A few years ago, committing to a single technology was necessary to provide a stable and quality service, even in many cases it was sought to unify equipment with a single brand, but with the arrival of new digital technologies and the emergence of hundreds of new solutions for the In the provision of services, the market was completely transformed, with hybrid models being the best alternative.

On the other hand, convergence is hitting the traditional business schemes, pay TV by itself is not enough to survive, but neither will internet distribution, so it is necessary to resort to other commercial schemes based on prototypes Nplay.

The Internet became the sword of Damocles in the Telecommunications sector due to the high demand that this service has, but which in turn fosters an unfair and parasitic competition by the so-called “.com”, who in the end obtain the greater economic gains from the high investments made by the telcos, which in turn barely cover their costs.

The Latin American markets have reached scandalous levels of concentration and dominant positions of very specific players, which undoubtedly threatens national sovereignty, free competition and the necessary price balance.

The market has taken a dramatic turn, flexibility and adaptability to multiple services and technologies is the new paradigm and who has the ability to adapt to this environment, will survive and stay in an increasingly complex playing field

REGULATING THEME AXIS

From convergent regulation to Hybrid deregulation

The technological convergence has allowed users to consume any type of content, in any type of platform, with any device, at any time, through any network, which undoubtedly has demanded changes in the regulatory schemes whose borders have been diluted.

The models of convergent regulation have been functional but insufficient, so that deregulation is the path that many countries have taken to promote competition and sectoral development, while incorporating, homologation and recognition of hybrid technologies and regulatory policies Hybrids are necessary to promote access and sustainability for small market players.  

Moderating questions

  • Is deregulation the best way?
  • How to regulate and incorporate the use of hybrid technologies without jeopardizing the quality of the service?
  • How to diminish the dominant and monopolistic positions that have been concentrated in the region?
  • How to protect small market agents?
  • Have convergent regulatory models been successful so far?
  • Should beguise promoting the neutrality of Network, Technology and Algorithms?
