The provision of third-party video and music services by operators has become commonplace, and as such, only offers limited differentiation. In this report, we examine how operators can build more-sophisticated agreements with third-party service providers, we look at new prospects in music, gaming, e-sports and in-car entertainment and we explore how operators can take advantage of the new possibilities enabled by 5G.
In this report, we answer the following questions:
- Where and how can operators and third parties build partnerships?
- What are the benefits for operators of partnering with third parties to provide value-added services (VAS)?
- What are the different types of partnerships that operators can form?
