Faultline logo 2015






Faultline is the weekly video delivery business and eco-system briefing paper. Available only on paid subscription, it sticks to the simple ingredients of experience, perspective and an up to date understanding of what technology can do. It covers everything:
– from OTT Over-The-Top Video to IPTV to DTH services
– from the transition of 4G to 5G and LTE
– from Triple and Quad Play to the implication to Advertisers
– from Smartphones and Tablets to Home Networks

Faultline is so called because it locates the creaks, lurches and in some cases, entire collapses of the rich seams traditionally mined by media and technology companies.

Each week, its analysts make assessments and predictions based on events that have happened in the digital media industry.

The publication guides and advises suppliers of OTT, Mobile TV, cable and satellite equipment; Pay TV and Mobile TV operators and those planning these services; content providers, applications houses, chip and component makers, wireless operators and investors in digital markets.

It follows the players, approaches, charging models, applications & service delivery mechanisms involved in the broadband and digital content industries.
