Canal+ Myanmar taps Nagra for Conax GO Live

Content security provider Nagra has deployed its Conax GO live multiscreen OTT solution with Canal+ International subsidiary Canal+ Myanmar FG.

The move marks the first cloud deployment of the Conax GO Live solution in the Asia-Pacific region.

The new service, which launched last month, enables subscribers to watch  linear pay TV channels on iOS or Android devices, with support for Apple AirPlay and Google Cast.

GO Live also offers features such as start-over and catch-up TV with EPG functionality. The new pay TV offering enabled by Conax GO Live runs on the AWS cloud and operates on the Conax Contego unified content security platform with multi-DRM support.

The Canal+ Myanmar FG pay-TV offering is available in packages of either 47 channels or 90 channels, and includes nine Canal+ original channels. ] Conax GO Live OTT solution comprises a content management system and white-label apps for iOS and Android mobile devices. Conax Contego is a content security platform that can be deployed on-site, from a private cloud or a public cloud, managed by the pay-TV operator or as a fully managed service.

“We wanted to propose to Myanmar market with an OTT solution that is simple, ready-to-deploy and cost-efficient yet meets consumer demand for advanced pay-TV services in this very dynamic and growing region. Conax GO Live delivers all that and more. We are pleased with the initial take-up of the service and look forward to its continued success,” said Maxime Woimant, chief technology and information officer at Canal+ Myanmar FG.
