The Verimatrix solution is designed to help operators offer enhanced OTT video services and provide give them new revenue security.

Verimatrix said the two companies' expanded OTT services are based on standard delivery protocol. Both feature streaming over SBB and Telemach networks, which will support the launch of 60 live channels, 40 catch-up TV channels and video-on-demand (VoD) content. HLS has been integrated on Android, PC, Mac and iOS clients, with set-top boxes (STB) expected to be ready soon.

Both operators will initially roll the service out to their customers, but they also will be able to offer the service outside of their footprints.
