Microscan Skandha Media Services needed to live stream more than 200 Indian TV channels around the globe through its OTT service. To do this with broadcast quality, they needed a global CDN that can deliver content to any digital device.

“Linear TV services are the primary means of entertainment for most of the Indian customers in both India and internationally. For expatriates, viewing Indian live channels is their key medium of entertainment and helps them stay connected to their roots while in the foreign country.”

 

“With better internet penetration and bandwidth globally, we’re able to cater to the increasing demand for OTT content by delivering to any devices and homes around the world.”
