FRANCE: INSIDE Secure has teamed with Astral Television Networks, Canada’s largest broadcaster of English- and French-language pay and specialty television services, to protect the delivery of more than 1,000 hours of high-definition quality programming from The Movie Network, HBO Canada and The Movie Network Encore to subscribers’ iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini and iPod touch devices.
Astral is using the INSIDE downloadable DRM Fusion Agent in its new TMN GO mobile app, which subscribers can download to their iOS devices to view premium video content from Astral’s newly launched The Movie Network GO (TMN GO), HBO GO Canada and TMN Encore GO video streaming services in Canada.
With a sleek cinematic design and interface that offers superior functionality, TMN GO, HBO GO Canada and TMN Encore GO are best-in-class services that allow subscribers to engage with more than 1,000 hours of premium content. The services are currently available in Eastern Canada to customers of Bell TV, Rogers and Cogeco Cable, with additional television providers expected to join in the coming months.
The INSIDE downloadable DRM Fusion Agent software allows protected high-value content to be distributed in a single, uniform and secure way to all supported platforms and devices. Operators can more quickly deploy secure content services and support a variety of business models, including ad-supported and pre-paid services, dramatically reducing DRM implementation costs and time to market.
It also enables media companies and high-value content providers to more quickly achieve revenue from service deployment by eliminating the dependence on mobile phone and device manufacturers to embed DRM protection.
