Powered by NAGRA’s end-to-end multiscreen solution, MediaLive, and under Link Net’s “First Media” brand, the new service allows subscribers to enjoy content through advanced set-top box capabilities–such as catch-up, personal video recording, video-on-demand, video streaming and games–and offers some of the same features in a complete multiscreen TV experience for anywhere and any device viewing.

“Demand for Internet-connected services in Indonesia is growing as consumers want to be able to enjoy content in a way that fits their lifestyle – as a result, the ability to deliver a robust multiscreen TV offering is a key differentiator for us,” said Richard Kartawijaya, Chief Executive Officer of Link Net. “We chose NAGRA to help us in this endeavor because of their ability to deliver solutions that could integrate seamlessly within our current environment and of course, for their longstanding digital TV expertise. Their solution enables us to offer First Media Go, a service that allows subscribers to conveniently enjoy 120 simulcast linear TV Anywhere channels, Video-on-Demand content and Catch-up TV online and on mobile devices anywhere.”

“We thank Link Net for entrusting us with this latest launch and are excited to partner with them in bringing advanced multiscreen services to their subscribers through another successful delivery of our end-to-end MediaLive solution,” said Jean-Luc Jezouin, SVP Sales APAC at NAGRA. “We will continue to support them and all of our customers to ensure that consumers have ubiquitous access to content on any device in any place at any time and in a secure environment.”

NAGRA MediaLive provides Link Net with a scalable, end-to-end solution to manage, secure and operate, from a single platform, a wide range of media services across multiple delivery networks, multiple devices and multiple content types. As part of the solution, the NAGRA MediaLive Secure Player extends the TV experience to open consumer electronic devices (PCs, tablets, smartphones) and enables service provider to safely distribute high-value content beyond the set-top box thanks to NAGRA anyCAST PRM, NAGRA’s Hollywood-approved DRM solution.
