In the past few years, cloud computing has become increasingly popular for sharing files and working in the cloud. The cloud is a term for hardware and software services that are delivered to over a network.
TV applications and services offered via the cloud are increasing every day. Different vendors claim that nearly all TV services can be offered via the cloud.
“Overall, the market for cloud services for operators is just starting and vendors are racing to capitalize on it. Cloud service isn’t a flashy new trend, it’s a steady migration away from legacy hardware and software services. Although not every pay-TV operator is likely to decide to scrap an entire legacy infrastructure or platform for the cloud, any operator can benefit today.” (Multimedia Research Group, Inc)
