British Broadcaster Deploys KeyOS MultiKey Service from BuyDRM To Secure Its Premium Digital Content

  • KeyOS Platform’s Multi-DRM Support Enables the Best User Experience On Today’s Popular User Platforms

AUSTIN, Texas — BuyDRM™, a pioneer in Digital Rights Management (“DRM”) and Content Security Services, today announced that the UK’s BBC has deployed the KeyOS MultiKey DRM Service as part of their BBC iPlayer App. As part of BuyDRM’s “Widevine Everywhere” program, this new offering powers the BBC iPlayer app which allows users to download or view offline content on MacOS and Windows clients.

Using KeyOS MultiKey Service, BBC iPlayer delivers DASH content using Google’s Widevine DRM which is supported across a variety of popular consumer platforms. The broadcaster also uses the KeyOS MultiPlay SDKs to deliver DRM licenses on mobile devices for protected playback of premium content. This multi-DRM approach furthers the BBC iPlayer brand as a leading streaming service to address UK’s strong demand for premium content when and where the customer sees fit.

“BuyDRM takes great pride in powering one of the worlds’ most well-known and consumed brands” said BuyDRM CEO and Founder, Christopher Levy. “We have innovated a variety of solutions to further the reach of the BBC iPlayer and this addition of Google’s Widevine DRM reinforces this effort.”
