Singapore– CASBAA released a groundbreaking study on Asian OTT regulation at its third annual OTT Summit.

The new publication, Same Same But Different? Video Policies for Asian Pay-TV and OTT details an “unsustainable” situation which sees governments maintain legacy regulatory policies that disadvantage their local operators, while television supply is moving online and undergoing a “comprehensive transformation.”

The publication is the result of the collaboration between highly regarded experts in Asian capitals, taking an in-depth look at the regulation of pay-TV and OTT video in countries and regions across Asia and Australasia, drawing comparisons with current legislation in the UK and the U.S.
