Turkish broadcaster Digiturk selects Unified Streaming for future-proof streaming platform

Turkey’s top satellite TV provider Digiturk has chosen industry leader Unified Streaming to support its newly consolidated video-streaming environment.

Unified Streaming software plugin Unified Origin will enable Digiturk to deliver a stable, seamless viewer experience to its millions of subscribers in Turkey and across the Turkish diaspora. Unified Origin fulfills all of Digiturk’s requirements to establish a future-proof streaming platform. Features will include support of a multi-CDN and multi-DRM strategy and the integration of an efficient, user-friendly nPVR.

Founded in 1999, Digiturk has been a forerunner in streaming live sports events – the company holds the broadcasting rights for Turkey’s premier professional football league Süper Lig. It has also pioneered the introduction of HD, 3D and 4K technologies into the country. Today a subsidiary of Qatari network beIN Media Group, Digiturk offers a multi-genre array of national and self-branded video and audio channels.

“Our ambition has always been to give audiences the best user experience, no matter where they are in the world. Incorporating Unified Streaming’s flexible technology for all our channels means we can meet our viewers expectations says Hatice Memigüven, CTO of Digiturk.

“We are excited to partner with Digiturk. As they prepare for the future of online video streaming, our scalable products and tailored solutions will help keep the company agile and able to evolve,” says Simon Westbroek, VP of Global Sales at Unified Streaming.
