Simplestream built a cloud-based solution on the foundation of App Platform, delivering bfbsTV, a strong and scalable set of streaming services accessible across mobile, tablet, laptop or connected TV devices.
With the ability for the end-user to shape their own experience through the video player – from EPG access and the selection of live channels to the consumption of multiple VOD assets – bfbsTV is now a richer-than-ever source of content. Besides live channels, it includes on demand content generated through Media Manager's Live2VOD module (available up to 7 days from broadcast), and a wide content backlog of box sets and series.
bfbsTV includes entertainment, music and live sports programming, with fully integrated Digital Rights Management (DRM) that enforces copyright and content protection. Most importantly, the closed app is fully integrated with the Defence Gateway, the one-step process for armed forces to access essential MOD online services.
