Conax delivers Montecable’s OTT service in Uruguay

Content security specialist Conax (Kudelski Group) announced the first Latin-American deployment of Conax GO Live secure OTT multiscreen solution by Uruguay leading pay TV operator Montecable. Since December 2017, the operator is offering MCGoLive, a multiscreen OTT service enabling its subscribers to watch live TV channels and “play services” on their iOS or Android mobile devices.
The new OTT platform offers start-over, catch-up and trick-play with full Electronic Program Guide functionality on live TV channels. Currently, MCGoLive is offered free-of-charge to Montecable’s customers subscribing to the operator’s HD channel packages.
The new service is secured by Conax Contego Multi-DRM, working seamlessly with existing Conax Contego conditional Access.
Conax GO Live includes a content management system, analytics and white-label apps on iOS and Android devices. Conax Contego works as a unified content security platform which handles both CAS and multi-DRM management from one back-end, significantly simplifying Montecable content security operations. Additional system integration for the project was delivered by regional partner Bold MSS.
Pierre Roy, EVP and CMO of the Kudelski Group, commented: “Conax has been very active in promoting OTT as a tool for pay-TV operators to keep consumers satisfied and to generate new revenues. Montecable has taken a wise decision to enhance their customer experience with a versatile OTT solution, which extends our collaboration well into the future.”
Conax GO Live end-to-end OTT solution will be demonstrated on the Conax stand, SU3424, at NAB 2018 in Las Vegas, which will be held from 9-12 April 2018.
