In the early 1990s, consumers began to experience digital TV technology as service providers were able to transmit significantly more Television channels while utilizing the same amount of bandwidth as analog TV. New service offerings emerged such as direct broadcast satellite TV and digital cable TV, increasing the options available to consumers from a few to hundreds of channels.

In the early 2000s, a second wave of digital video technology (IPTV) hit the market as Telcos, attempting to defend against voice, data and video service bundles offered by cable operators, launched television services delivered over their broadband networks.

In the late 2000s, the third wave of digital TV technology evolution (OTT) began, fueled by new connected consumer devices, advanced streaming media technologies and increased access to broadband services. It became possible for operators to deliver video services to a broad array of devices anytime and anywhere.
