Boxer TV, a Swedish pay TV operator owned by the Teracom Group, has selected Viaccess-Orca’s end-to-end TV Everywhere solution to extend its DTT and on-demand service offering into the multiscreen environment.

Using a combination of Viaccess-Orca’s Connected Sentinel digital rights management and Prime Sentinel smart card-based conditional access system, alongside the RiGHTv service delivery platform and COMPASS content discovery platform, Boxer TV will be able to deliver more than 60 channels of live TV as well as personalised SVoD and catch-up TV content to a wide range of mobile devices throughout Sweden and Denmark.

Viaccess-Orca’s TV Everywhere solution allows pay TV service providers to shape the ultimate content and user experience for their subscribers on multiple screens. Through the end-to-end solution, Boxer TV will be able to protect premium content through cross platform security, ensure the smooth delivery of content to users, and increase viewer engagement leveraging unique content discovery, personalisation, and interactivity capabilities. Video content will be personalised based on subscribers’ individual tastes and preferences across all devices.

Boxer TV’s new multiscreen service will initially support iOS and Android-based smartphones and tablets.
