March 11, 2021
VO's TV as a Service (TVaaS), DRM, and mobile app offerings speed up time-to-market for Cable Club's new live service for Latin American viewers.

Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global expert in providing OTT and TV platforms as well as content protection and advanced data platforms, announced today that Cable Club, one of the largest cable operators in Peru, is launching an OTT offering featuring Android TV set-top boxes (STBs), mobile apps for live video streaming, and catch-up TV content powered by VO's TVaaS cloud-based TV platform and DRM solutions.

Using VO's end-to-end, fully managed, and cloud-based TV service solution and powerful DRM agents, Cable Club can rapidly introduce its new TV service to the market.

"Consumers want premium content on every screen, but it's imperative that the content is protected," observes Ana Lucia Gonzales, CEO at Cable Club.

She adds, "VO's TVaaS platform provides us with a flexible, one-stop-shop solution for delivering TV content to a wide range of devices, backed by a powerful DRM that has passed rigorous industry assessments. Thanks to VO's solution, Cable Club will be the first local pay-TV operator in South Peru to offer a live service via mobile apps as well as Android TV STBs."

VO's TVaaS platform provides Cable Club with a complete solution for secure live video delivery, including applications for smartphones, tablets, and computers.

Since TVaaS is a fully managed and cloud-based video service delivery platform, it allows Cable Club to quickly monetize its new IPTV and OTT service. Cable Club says it will rely on security agents offered by VO's DRM solutions within its new Android TV STBs, ensuring a superior TV experience for all subscribers with the highest content protection.

"Cable Club is set to disrupt the Peruvian market with its unique TV offering that we're proud to be powering," concludes Philippe Leonetti, CEO at Viaccess-Orca.

He adds, "Speed and responsiveness to subscriber demands are important factors for success in today's pay-TV environment, and our TVaaS platform will ensure a fast time to market for Cable Club's new service with minimal upfront investment."
