FuboTV is a Live Sports OTT provider with over 65 channels that rivals many traditional pay TV offerings. Fubo streams highly demanded sports content, and thus needs to constantly provide a high-quality viewing experience to retain their hard-fought viewers in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
FuboTV uses Bitmovin’s VOD cloud-based encoding software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings deployed on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud and Bitmovin Player to process and playback content. The Bitmovin Live Encoding SaaS is integrated with Zixi Feeder for reliable, secure transmission. Bitmovin Live Encoding and the Bitmovin VOD Encoding SaaS are each integrated with BuyDRM’s KeyOS Encryption Key API and the KeyOS MultiKey multi-DRM service to encrypt content and prevent unauthorized access. The development teams of the companies have collaborated closely to enable direct communications and quick turnaround times.
“Bitmovin’s 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 a markedly better experience than our previous player. We’re looking forward to exploring more ways to work together.”
