Over the past five years there has been a marked shift in the way that Pay-TV content is pirated.
Live redistribution of content over the Internet is becoming an increasing problem for content service providers and content owners as the technology becomes easier and easier to operate. The Internet has facilitated streaming of high-quality video content, making it simpler and cheaper to consume content, including live TV.
The number of people taking advantage of these practices has been increasing worldwide, making this a major issue for content service providers. Today’s pirates have figured out how to pay for one legal subscription and send the content to others through multiple illegal retransmissions. This leaves service providers and content owners competing with illegal services that offer the same content at a much lower cost.
During this webinar Viaccess-Orca (VO) will explore this new trend of piracy, focusing on how it impacts the sports content business, as well as how it can be monitored, counter measured, and stopped to secure the content providers’ revenues with VO’s Eye on Piracy security service.
This is a live interactive discussion with questions from audience members. Please do log on to listen live online and participate in the debate.
The webinar will start at 1600 CEST / 1500 BST / 1000 EDT on Thursday 5th June.
