DIRECTV Play brings multi-network TV everywhere to Latin America
Gabriel Miramar-Garcia | 13-11-2013
DIRECTV is launching DIRECTV Play, the first TV everywhere platform in Latin America that integrates multiple feeds into one single platform.
Content will be included from different providers, such as HBO GO, Moviecity Play, Fox Play, Fox Sports Play, Space Plus, TNT Plus, ESPN Play and DIRECTVSports (with exclusive live matches of the major leagues).
The satellite provider selected the Toolbox Cloud Hub technology to support the service, which allows online access to more than 5,000 movies, TV shows, sports programming, news and kids programming from one digital portal, available over devices.
Cloud Hub integrates with the content management systems of different content providers, and then collects, indexes, adapts and unifies all the metadata into the same logic in order to develop a single point of access with content from multiple providers.
Toolbox technology streamlines authentication into a one-time validation process, allowing users to access six different platforms with a single login.
