“…VVC’s added efficiency makes it ideal for video transmission in mobile networks where data capacity is more limited. The organization said H.265/HEVC requires ca. 10 gigabytes of data to transmit a 90-min UHD video, whereas VVC would require only 5 gigabytes of data.”

#FuboTV FuboTV reports significant growth
“The small but growing virtual pay TV service fuboTV posted a 78% increase in overall revenues to $51 million for its first-quarter reporting period.
Much of its growth comes from subscription revenue, which climbed 74% to $46.4 million, while advertising revenue rose 120% year-over-year to $4.1 million. The service’s average revenue per user (ARPU) was 25% higher versus a year ago to $54.16 per month.”
