Sky TV NZ launched its new Sky Go appli­ca­tion for iOS lever­ag­ing Adobe Prime­time Player SDKs and Adobe Prime­time Cloud DRM. The iOS app pro­vides view­ers with instant access to 10 pre­mium live-stream­ing chan­nels and the Android ver­sion is sched­uled to be released later this year.

Adobe Prime­time DRM recently launched a cloud-based deploy­ment option to com­ple­ment the on-premises solu­tion. All major stu­dios have approved apps and ser­vices that use Adobe’s DECE-approved DRM, which pro­vides an easy-to-deploy, end-to-end DRM solu­tion inte­grated with the Adobe Prime­time Player SDKs. Adobe now offers the abil­ity to run the same DRM-pro­tected video stream on all Adobe Prime­time enabled plat­forms, includ­ing desk­tops (see demo), iOS, Android, Roku, and Xbox — with more to come. The sin­gle pub­lish­ing and mon­e­ti­za­tion work­flow leads to sig­nif­i­cantly lower oper­a­tional costs.

If you are located in New Zealand, please down­load the Sky Go appli­ca­tion directly from the iOS App Store and let us know what you think. For more infor­ma­tion on Adobe Prime­time, visit this blog, fol­low us on Twit­ter, or check out the web­site.
