OTT Authentication: Supporting TV Everywhere and OTT Streaming Video
Set your subscribers free! TV today is no longer tied to the set-top box.
Consumers want the freedom of watching their favorite programs on a variety of screens: laptops, tablets, mobile devices. In addition, consumers want content to be easy to access and available 24 hours a day.
