Prisa extends Yomvi multiscreen service with Nagra

Spanish pay TV and media group Prisa TV has extended the availability of its OTT platform Yomvi to iOS devices using TV technology company  Nagra’s MediaLive Multiscreen solution.

Prisa, the operator of the Spanish pay TV platform Canal Plus Spain, launched the Yomvi service in 2011 on hybrid set-top boxes and PCs, later making it available via telco Jazztel’s OTT streaming devices. The operator has now extended the service to Apple devices using MediaLive Multiscreen. The solution includes Nagra’s MediaLive Service Platform for digital asset management and service delivery, Media Player and Persistent Rights Management.

Prisa is expected to further extend Yomvi to Android devices, Samsung Smart TVs and the Microsoft Xbox 360 console in the next few months.

“Prisa TV continues to lead the multiscreen charge in Spain with the most advanced and comprehensive multiscreen offerings in the world,” said Jean-Michel Puiatti, Nagra’s vice-president of multiscreen products. “Thanks to its broad coverage of content protected devices including PCs, tablets, smart phones and soon adding connected TVs and game consoles to their mix, Prisa TV is paving the way for a new generation of pay TV consumers through their ability to serve not only existing satellite subscribers but also new internet-only users.”
