fuboTV is a Live Sport OTT provider with over 65 channels that rivals many traditional pay TV offerings. fuboTV streams highly demanded sports content, thus needs to constantly provide a high-quality viewing experience to retain their hard fought viewers in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
Bitmovin is providing fuboTV with a cross-platform Video Player and cloud-based encoding and encryption via the Bitmovin Encoding Service integrated with BuyDRM’s KeyOS Encryption Key API, the KeyOS MultiKey multi-DRM service and Zixi Feeder, for nine Showtime channels. The development teams of the two companies are tightly integrated to enable direct communications and quick turnaround times.
“Bitmovin’ engineering team has been great to work with. We were able to rely on them to become an extension of our engineering team. Bitmovin’ gives us greater control over the player than any other player in the market. We were able to get our implementation to production with markedly better experience than our previous player. We’re looking forward to exploring more ways to work together.”
