Mobistar’s new cable TV service is expected to be launched by around the fourth quarter of 2014, following new cable regulation in Belgium that gives alternative operators access to cable networks. Leveraging the new regulation, Mobistar plans to expand its consumer mobile phone business into television and broadband services. The selection of the content protection solution partner is another step towards the launch of new convergent offers after the implementation process was started via the payment of 1.2 million euros mid-January to initiate the cable regulation.
“Engaging end-users with premium content services means for content service providers to adopt flexible, reliable and scalable security solutions,” said François Moreau de Saint Martin, CEO, Viaccess-Orca. “Our Prime Sentinel smart card-based security solution, leveraging VO cloud for rights management and monitoring managed services, will be the security cornerstone for Mobistar’s upcoming TV service as it builds up a competitive multiple play service offering. We’re honored by being chosen for this groundbreaking project.”
