With OTT, a "just-like-TV" viewing experience is made possible thanks to two recent technological advances. The first is H.264, the undisputed champion in providing the best video quality at a given data throughput.

The second is "adaptive streaming". It provides the viewing device with the encoded video content at various quality levels and lets the viewing device benefit from the best available quality according to its network conditions.
