SES subsidiary, HD+, has become the first operator to deploy TVkey Cloud on its HD+ satellite platform for the delivery of premium pay-TV services.

hdplus 30May2019Co-developed by Nagra and Samsung, TVkey Cloud is a direct-to-TV security solution that brings pay-TV services directly to internet-connected smart TVs equipped with TVkey hardware root of trust. Its cloud security management systems support compliance with MovieLabs requirements for Enhanced Content Protection of 4K Ultra HD, HDR and early release content. A supervisor app environment allows HbbTV to customise TV user interfaces to give consumers the optimum experience when accessing HD+ content and services.

HD+ will now bring ECP compliant 4K Ultra HD and HDR pay-TV services directly to the TV set without the need for smartcard or external module. TVkey Cloud also enables HD+ to deliver an operator-branded TV User Interface with HD+’s own HD+ Komfort-Funktion (value-added service) with instant restart of programmes, access to seven-day catch-up TV and a TV guide. Additional value-added services like VOD and cloud DVR can be implemented through the TVkey Cloud framework.

“The instant activation of HD+ using a Smart TV application without the need for any additional hardware makes it easier than ever for consumers to access our services,” said HD+ managing director and chief operating officer Georges Agnes.

TVkey Cloud is already being implemented in Samsung TVs and is supported by Nagra and Conax conditional access systems (CAS). “The TVkey Cloud solution make it easy for pay-TV operators like HD+ to deliver the best of internet and TV experiences and activate consumers right from the smart TV app store - capabilities that, until now, were only available to OTT providers,” added Maurice Van Riek, SVP content and asset security for Nagra.

“And because TVkey Cloud has been designed for Enhanced Content Protection, HD+ has the peace of mind that their premium content assets are secure in a direct-to TV environment.”
