Netflix IPTV Feasibility

Carried out consultancy around the feasibility of the delivery technology for Netflix’ move from postal DVD service to IPTV platform. I was part of a consultancy consortium provided by the VC to look at various methods of delivery for the new product, the main ones being VDSL, cable, and IPTV over existing 3rd party network access.

I looked at the technical and commercial aspects of each, particularly the impact of VDSL. I was able to eliminate VDSL as an option for delivery in the early stages and shift the focus on to IPTV over existing internet access.
