yes to launch Israeli OTT platform

yes Satellite TV – Israel’s only provider of multi-channel television broadcasts via satellite – has selected leading OTT TV platform Tvinci to create the “ultimate user experience” for yes GO, Israel’s first personal and social multiscreen TV service.

Building on the penetration of connected devices into Israeli households, yes is harnessing the disruptive power of OTT technology and has chosen Tvinci’s MediaStore to create an immersive personal and social TV experience.

With over 40 linear channels and thousands of hours of premium VOD, yes GO’s seamless cross device service will set the standard for pay TV services in Israel and beyond.

“Tvinci was the natural choice for us, when we took the decision to create an OTT TV service with an immersive user experience,” says Itzhak Elyakim, VP Engineering and CTO, yes Satellite. “yes GO is one of the most sophisticated OTT pay TV solutions in Europe and we are proud to be working with the world’s leading OTT TV platform provider in our adventure beyond the set top box. yes Satellite prides itself on leading the pay TV market in Israel and beyond and we are confident that our combination of excellent content and Tvinci’s social and personal user experience is a potent mix.”

Subscribers to yes will be able to access yes GO on their PCs, MACs, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, so that they can take their pay TV services out on the go. Tvinci’s platform is designed for premium OTT TV services, with a comprehensive device management module to ensure compliance with Hollywood studio content protection requirements. Tvinci’s device management module manages the number of devices and the number of concurrent streams per account, as well as how often end users can add and remove devices to/from their account.
