Austin, TX USA and London, UK. (PRWEB) April 12, 2017 — BuyDRM™ and DAZN announced their commercial agreement whereby DAZN is deploying secure, high-quality live and VOD sports content using BuyDRM’s KeyOS™ MultiPlay™ software development kits (SDKs). Perform Group has successfully launched their live sports streaming service DAZN in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Japan. Offering Live and on-demand sporting events on connected devices, DAZN depends on BuyDRM’s MultiPlay SDKs to provide protected premium content playback on the popular iOS consumer platforms for mobile devices. DAZN streams over 8,000 live sporting events each year including Premier League, La Liga, J. League, NFL, NBA, Ice Hockey, Rugby, Motorsports, Tennis and more.

BuyDRM’s MultiPlay SDKs for Android and iOS support the industry-leading DRMs, such as Microsoft PlayReady, Google Widevine and Apple FairPlay, which power the widest variety of premium content for mobile device consumers.

The KeyOS MultiPlay SDKs are approved for the delivery of standard definition and high definition premium studio content.

Warren Palk, Chief Operating Officer at DAZN, said, “A multisport OTT service like DAZN has very specific requirements on the DRM front when it comes to distributing premium content from the biggest sports associations around the globe. The KeyOS platform really helped us check off all the boxes when it came to fulfilling our requirements.”
