Technological Advancements are Disrupting Traditional Media

NEW YORK, August 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

New technologies are expected to change the telecommunications and media market. A research report by Deloitte indicates that the initial commercial rollout of the fifth-generation wireless network technology (5G) is expected to connect the various sectors of mobile technology, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, and mobile media. As 5G enters the scene, many telecom carriers are looking to increase their presence in the media space through M&A deals and partnerships. With the sheer number of applications that 5G could potentially support, Deloitte projects a strong impact on the entire mobile ecosystem and economy overall. It is projected to surpass 4G's arrival, when GDP grew over USD 150 Billion and over 370,000 new jobs were created. The report specifies that mobile and video content represent some of the most significant consumer uses of 5G and therefore, the expansion into the content business is only natural for carriers seeking growth. There are several possible approaches to the media segment, such as buying major media houses or purchasing smaller-scale TV distribution technology with the intent to bring it to scale. The objective however, is the same: deliver content to any screen through wireless distribution. TPT Global Tech, Inc. (OTC: TPTW), Qualcomm Technologies Inc. (OTC: QCOM), AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), Sprint Corp (NYSE: S), Quantenna Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTNA)

Reliance on traditional distribution channels is becoming more problematic for business, as the popularity of subscription services continues to grow exponentially. According to Deloitte, in the third quarter of 2017 alone, one Million US viewers canceled their multichannel subscription television services, instead preferring a combination of broadband Internet and IPTV, digital video recorders, digital terrestrial television broadcasts, or free-to-air satellite television. "These viewers clearly represent an enormous opportunity for media companies nimble enough to meet their needs. In response to these trends, media companies are increasingly going direct-to-consumer with their own digital streaming services. For example, Disney recently acquired a tech firm that will help it launch its own streaming services, ending its distribution agreement with Netflix," Deloitte explained.

TPT Global Tech, Inc. (OTC: TPTW) earlier today announced breaking news that, "the acquisition of Surfin Cycle, with the intent of selling Joint Venture opportunities for the tech-based electric scooter. The electric scooter business is one of the fastest growing markets and TPT Global plans to equip each scooter with their proprietary ViewMe Live app.  The scooter will have SaaS technology and turnkey operations with everything built-in to make it as simple as possible for partners to enter the electric scooter market.  The ViewMe Live app will allow franchisees to track user activity, generate revenue and allow riders to live stream their experiences.  

"We believe in addition to being an incredible opportunity for investors who want to get in on the market established by Bird and Lime, Surfin Cycle with ViewMe Live will allow TPT to grow our user base and create an on-line content community surrounding the Surfin Cycle experience," said Stephen Thomas, President and CEO, TPT Global Tech.  

TPT will be launching a home base operation in San Diego that will allow a live three day training for partners so they are prepared to launch their business. Surfin Cycle works by selling Joint Venture opportunities to hotels, cruise ships and other proprietor led businesses who want to participate in the current electric scooter phenomenon.  

Stephen also believes, "The Surfin Cycle Joint Venture opportunity aligns perfectly with TPT Global Tech's focus on using technology to enhance the consumer experience by creating targeted content, utilizing innovative technology solutions and using the data received to continually improve our products. Through the launch of the Surfin Cycle Joint Venture opportunity, we continue to fuel TPT Global's growth and will enhance our ability to deliver unique and high-performing content while generating revenues and subscriber fees in a variety of unique ways unlike anyone else in the marketplace."
