OneTrust today announced expanded over-the-top (OTT) compliance capabilities, enabling publishers and advertisers to capture consent and preferences from within OTT applications and Connected TV (CTV) environments to support compliance with GDPR, CCPA, IAB TCF 2.0 and more.

OTT stands for “over-the-top,” and is used to explain streaming media services that are offered directly to viewers via the Internet. OTT bypasses cable, broadcast, and satellite television platforms, the companies that traditionally act as a controller or distributor of such content.

As many of us know, OTT content is rising in popularity throughout the world. In fact, 74% of all U.S. households now have some form of subscription video-on-demand service, 38% of which are subscribed to more than one.

This new type of content distribution creates an exciting opportunity for publishers and advertisers to deliver targeted content to consumers in new, more personalized ways. However, it also creates complexities around handling consumer’s personal data. By implementing privacy controls into OTT applications, publishers and advertisers can avoid legal ramifications, while also transparently communicating with consumers to build trust. This is where OneTrust OTT App Compliance helps.
