October 11, 2011
NDS has announced that its technology is powering the new Sky Anytime push VoD service for Sky Deutschland, the largest pay-TV operator in Germany and Austria.
Enabled by NDS’ MediaHighway set-top box software, Sky Anytime provides Sky+ customers with a wide range of on-demand content, including selected movies from their subscribed film packages as well as high quality entertainment and sport programmes. A wide selection of content is ‘pushed’ onto the Sky+ hard disc overnight in a way that makes efficient use of broadcast bandwidth, the majority of which is available in HD. Accordingly each day a new selection of content is available through the Sky Anytime service for instant playback, including the latest blockbuster releases from “Sky Select”.
