With the onset of COVID-19, the demand for home entertainment spiked and led to a rise in subscriptions, more account sharing and placed considerable pressure on existing infrastructure. Were all players prepared for the dramatic rise in OTT uptake? Did they have the content and the infrastructure to cope with the rise in subscriptions?

The MENA OTT and Anti-Piracy Virtual Week will bring together industry experts and end users over a period of three days to discuss these questions and more.
