MUMBAI: NDS has announced that NDS VideoGuard Connect is helping enable BSkyB, the UK and Ireland's multi-channel, multi-platform television service provider, to deliver Sky Go to iOS devices.

Sky Go provides flexible access to Sky content across multiple devices. VideoGuard Connect, the DRM for multi-platform pay-TV from NDS, will help enable Sky to deliver live linear channels to iPhones, iPads and the iPod touch in line with a user's subscription. Utilising content delivery optimisation technology from NDS, VideoGuard Connect helps enable the Sky Go service to offer a live TV experience when on the move in the UK and Ireland, via 3G or Wi-Fi.

Sky MD of product design and development Alun Webber commented, "Sky Go is our response to growing demand from our subscribers for greater flexibility in how and where they access their favourite content. The new service will enable subscribers to view their content on their iPhones and iPads for free. NDS and VideoGuard Connect have enabled us to deploy the Sky Go service and provide subscribers with a value enhancing multi-platform experience."

A complete content and service protection solution that builds on over two decades of premium content protection expertise, VideoGuard Connect is designed to help TV operators to seamlessly extend their pay-TV services to connected media devices. It enables the secure ingestion, delivery and consumption of premium content over both managed and OTT networks whilst maintaining subscription privileges across devices.

With VideoGuard Connect, the DRM for multi-platform pay-TV, platform operators are able to deploy linear channels, on-demand content and download services on the most popular devices, delivered over the open Internet utilising content delivery optimisation technologies from NDS.

VideoGuard Connect provides content segmentation and encryption of the Sky Go service, protecting content delivery and consumption on all iOS devices.

NDS senior VP major accounts David Nabozny said, "Sky is once again taking innovative steps to provide their subscribers with access to premium services in the most flexible way. We strive to create solutions that enable operators to provide the best possible end user experience; VideoGuard Connect enables operators to launch multi-platform value-added TV services with streamlined deployment."
