In this episode Natan Edelsburg and Minda Smiley, executive editor and reporter at media and advertising platform The Drum respectively, reflect on the future of Over The Top TV. We discuss how streaming services could ignite a new piracy war, Hulu’s use of pirate data to decide what content to acquire, and how new moves from the FCC could land Popcorn Time on set top boxes in the US. Finally we eye a potentially unruly future for Over The Top, with the appearance of generic android-based hardware and easy-to-use, renegade services like Kodi and Viper Media. How will content producers and advertisers adapt?

Listen out for the (actual) tweeting birds of Southern Spain in this episode – the show was recorded from our host’s holiday location.
