BuyDRM To Provide KeyOS Multi-DRM Platform for Free Ad-Supported Streaming Platform Samsung TV Plus
- FAST and AVOD Services Positioned for Growth
AUSTIN, TX — BuyDRM announced today the selection of the KeyOS Multi-DRM platform to provide streaming security for Samsung TV Plus, Samsung’s free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) platform.
Samsung TV Plus provides users of Samsung Smart TVs and Samsung Galaxy devices the ability to watch more than 200 channels and growing of live, on-demand content across 23 countries.
KeyOS is an award-winning, content security platform for premium video content with studio approved multi-DRM and watermarking technologies that safeguard the distribution of high value video content.
“Samsung TV Plus has a strong position in the AVOD (Ad-Supported Video on Demand) marketplace with some of the most popular content, which is easily available to stream on consumers’ smart TVs and mobile devices,” said Christopher Levy, BuyDRM CEO & Founder. “As the global leader in streaming security for AVOD, BuyDRM is proud to deliver to such a leading global brand the DRM necessary to continue to scale its superior AVOD platform.”
“BuyDRM and OVHcloud are uniquely positioned to serve the high-availability and scaling needs that Samsung TV Plus requires,” said Thierry Souche, CTO at OVHcloud, the parent company of BuyDRM. “With BuyDRM and OVHcloud at the helm, Samsung TV Plus can focus on scaling their reach while ensuring its streaming security.”
“The global AVOD market is set to expand significantly over the next five years. Consumers will increasingly turn to free-to-access content, which also turns up the heat on the SVOD players. Content protection will be key, making DRM increasingly critical,” said Alex Davies, Senior Analyst at Rethink TV, the video research and consulting wing of Rethink Technology Research.
