Thai cable operator CTH has launched an over-the-top (OTT) video service to provide its customers with TV everywhere, using conditional access technology from Irdeto and IP software from Inview.

Basic DVB-C set-top boxes have been made OTT-ready with improved graphics and IP streaming, enabled by Inview with cooperation from all the major stakeholders in CTH's cable network.

"Through its new model and the support of Irdeto and Inview, CTH Public Company Limited can now securely deliver high value content via cable or OTT, including high-demand English Premier League matches," said Bengt Jonsson, VP Sales APAC, Irdeto.

"It is extremely important that operators protect their investments in exclusive rights and high value content, and that means having the most robust and adaptable media protection in place. CTH Public Company Limited is one of the most forward-thinking operators in the APAC market and by leveraging an OTT model it can adjust to the growing challenges of the TV everywhere market."

Chirdsak Kukiattinun, CEO, CTH, added: "Thanks to our trusted partners, Inview and Irdeto, we have now evolved from delivering secure compelling content via cable to a pure OTT offering, which puts us in a strong position in the market".
