Their solution enables us to offer First Media Go, a service that allows subscribers to conveniently enjoy 120 simulcast linear TV Anywhere channels, Video-on-Demand content and Catch-up TV online and on mobile devices anywhere.”

“We thank Link Net for entrusting us with this latest launch and are excited to partner with them in bringing advanced multiscreen services to their subscribers through another successful delivery of our end-to-end MediaLive solution,” said Jean-Luc Jezouin, SVP Sales APAC at NAGRA. “We will continue to support them and all of our customers to ensure that consumers have ubiquitous access to content on any device in any place at any time and in a secure environment.”
