Free Advertising Supported Television (FAST) Channels
NCTC offers various solutions to help members navigate the ever-changing video environment, including the proliferation of FAST channels. By partnering with several FAST OTT service providers, NCTC affords members the opportunity to provide their customers with streaming linear and on-demand content without paying a subscription fee. Members benefit from a customer growth/retention perspective when they offer their customers more choice and video options.
Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) and Subscription Video-on-Demand (SVOD)
NCTC negotiates agreements with DTC and SVOD OTT content providers to give members access to the streaming content their customers demand and also to offer members some revenue-generating opportunities. By participating in our OTT agreements, independent operators gain access to a compelling portfolio of entertainment options to attract and retain cord-cutters and cord-nevers.
NCTC currently has agreements with Cheddar, CuriosityStream, Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, Max, Hulu and Peacock.
Our team negotiates and maintains OTT agreements for our members. During negotiations, we represent our members’ positions and best interests.
We provide you with educational opportunities to help you make the best video choices for your customers.
Virtual Multichannel Video Programming Distributors (vMVPD)
Virtual multichannel video programming distributors (vMVPDs) deliver linear and on-demand video content over the internet, giving our members affordable content options to pass along to consumers, who won’t have to purchase individual OTT subscriptions directly from each content provider.
NCTC virtual MVPDs partnerships include FuboTV.
Our team negotiates vMVPD agreements with an eye on our members’ best interests.
We provide you with educational opportunities so you can choose.
Operators are continually shifting to meet ever-changing consumer demand in the video ecosystem. As more direct-to-consumer video services are made available over the internet, it can be difficult for end consumers to find the content they want to watch and manage these various subscriptions. This is where our new partner comes in.
MyBundle.TV creates tools for ISPs to help their end customers identify which streaming platforms have the most important content for them. MyBundle.TV offers a suite of products that can look and feel as if they are part of your website. These tools can be customized to fit the needs of each member company. If you want to emphasize video, the tools can make recommendations to the end customer highlighting traditional programming. If you wish to deemphasize video, the tool can be customized to highlight an OTT video partner. Often, participating members can reap a recurring monthly bounty for as long as a customer keeps a streaming service.
There are other deals MyBundle.TV has launched; however, the NCTC deal comes with the guaranteed best rates. It also includes an above-average revenue share.
