Content protection and multiscreen television solutions provider Nagra and NOS have announced plans to step up the fight against broadcast and streaming piracy of Benfica football league matches.

Content protection 27Nov2018The leading operator in Portugal, NOS owns the rights to Benfica games and the distribution rights for the Benfica TV channel and will now use Nagra’s Anti-Piracy Services solution to fight threats such as control-word sharing and streaming piracy of Benfica content across the web, social media and illegal IPTV services.

“Our goal at NOS is always to provide our subscribers with the highest quality content and the best viewing experience and this is especially important with live sports events such as the Benfica soccer games,” remarked NOS service platforms senior director José Pascoal. “In order to continue serving our customers in the best way possible, we need to preserve the value we deliver to consumers and ensure that this premium content is only delivered through the legitimate value chain. Nagra Anti-Piracy Services were the natural choice to help us deliver on that objective.”

“We’re delighted to support NOS and BenficaTV as they ramp up the fight against live sports piracy in Portugal and we will be with them every step of the way,” added Jean-Philippe Plantevin, vice president, anti-piracy at Nagra.

“By complementing their existing Nagra content protection technology with our anti-piracy services, NOS can now take a holistic approach to fighting piracy working through a single entity that will not only address the growing threat of streaming piracy but also continue to fight control-word sharing piracy in the region.”
