Though on-demand services are continuing to grow, linear viewing remains popular. After all, people don’t always know what they want to watch. Despite what some naysayers may claim, your consumers don’t always have specific programmes in mind when they turn on the TV, but are instead open to whatever’s on. Linear EPGs are now designed to filter and curate content, in a world of almost infinite content, to help aid programme discovery.

A cost-effective approach

It is impossible to tell the difference between linear streaming and a traditional Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) broadcast, even when viewed on a large screen. The only real difference is price.

Moreover, Arqiva can launch new services from dedicated Logical Channel Numbers (LCN) or an existing DTT channel. On smaller screens, mobiles, tablets and PCs, our linear IP streaming service is able to launch as a stand-alone application from a website, or it can be integrated as an embedded player in an existing site.

The user experience is open to customisation across all screens, and customers can opt into a managed service which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. DTT and satellite delivery are also optional, using the same infrastructure to help bring the reliability of broadcast to IP markets.

We make deployment as simple as possible. Our professional services team is ready to tailor your service to meet your exact needs, or if you’d prefer something simpler, you can readily deploy one of our standard products or features.

Core elements of Linear IP Streaming include:

Our linear IP streaming solution is just like broadcast, only better. You can extract real-time reporting and analytics on both DTT and IP services, and we’ll give you all the tools required to monetise and profit from our new IP services. It really couldn’t be simpler.
