DCB for YouTube in the USA
Bango has announced the launch of Direct Carrier Billing (“DCB”) payment services for Google’s YouTube TV Service, with the initial launch via a “leading” but unnamed US Mobile Network Operator (“MNO”). With the ongoing growth in US Over The Top (“OTT) video services continuing to cannibalise the Cable TV operators, we believe DCB for YouTube TV is a strong offering in a large market. The release is light on detail as to the potential value to Bango, and we make no revisions to forecasts. Nevertheless, the launch represents a further win in an area of strategic focus for the group. It also confirms the integration of a major new merchant service into the Bango Platform.
