Widevine Secures Premium VOD Content for SaskTel

SaskTel has gone live with a video-on-demand (VOD) service offering Hollywood content secured by Widevine Technologies. Among the content being secured are movies provided by top Hollywood studios Warner Bros. International Television Distribution, Twentieth Century Fox and Sony Pictures Television International. SaskTel recently announced multi-year Video-on-Demand distribution agreements with all three studios.

SaskTel introduced its IP broadcast service in 2002 over its existing DSL network and launched its video-on-demand service in 2003. The VOD service is available to subscribers in all nine cities where SaskTel's video service is offered.

For the SaskTel video over DSL deployment, Widevine interfaces with Media Manager from Alcatel, the video delivery platform provided by Kasenna and set-top-boxes from Pace Micro Technology.
