April 6, 2018

BuyDRM, a specialist in Digital Rights Management (DRM) and Content Security Services, has announced that the UK’s BBC has deployed the KeyOS MultiKey DRM service as part of its BBC iPlayer App. As part of BuyDRM’s ‘Widevine Everywhere’ programme, this new offering powers the BBC iPlayer app which allows users to download or view offline content on MacOS and Windows clients.

Using KeyOS MultiKey service, BBC iPlayer delivers DASH content using Google’s Widevine DRM which is supported across a variety of popular consumer platforms. The broadcaster also uses the KeyOS MultiPlay SDKs to deliver DRM licences on mobile devices for protected playback of premium content.

“BuyDRM takes great pride in powering one of the world’s most well-known and consumed brands,” said BuyDRM CEO and Founder, Christopher Levy. “We have innovated a variety of solutions to further the reach of the BBC iPlayer and this addition of Google’s Widevine DRM reinforces this effort.”

“Google’s Widevine technology is powering many of the most successful OTT platforms around the world,” said Brian Baker, Head of Widevine Business at Google. “Working with BuyDRM, the BBC is able to deploy a DRM solution that supports all of the popular consumer playback platforms and business models.”
