Over-the-top (OTT) is the delivery of TV/video content directly from the internet. Users don’t have to subscribe to a traditional cable or satellite provider to access this content; they can watch this content on various devices—tablet, phone, laptop/desktop, television, etc.

The video is delivered in a streaming or video-on-demand (VOD) format. Different types of OTT services include Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. Mass media and networks are also launching their own OTT services such as Disney+ and NBC’s Peacock.
