Webinar on Demand

How to fight piracy on Android TV installations?


Join the security experts from Beenius and Irdeto in this webinar

Webinar description

Pay TV operators have been adjusting their content strategy to respond to changing consumer needs and increased competition from over-the-top (OTT) video services. The Android TV is increasingly the platform of choice for operators to play an aggregator role with attractive third-party content via its Google Play Store.

The Google Play Store grows rapidly and already contains over 7,000+ apps for TV and despite Google’s security controls, legitimate apps may cause problematic behavior on the STB and impact the customer experience. Moreover, legitimate apps can be misused to stream pirate content via plug-ins. Finally, government regulations around certain apps and instructions to remove or limit their ability to function are becoming increasingly more common.

So how do operators balance the benefits of Android TV’s open app store with their own business needs?

During this webinar, Irdeto and Beenius will jointly discuss the benefits of Android TV environments, along with the security and piracy challenges associated with them and how to address them. They will also share best practices for operators wishing to smoothly transition or initiate a migration to Android TV and detail the various tactics to maintain control in an open environment.
