Introducing Adobe Pass for TV Everywhere: New Video Authentication Solution for Premium Content
Today we announced Adobe Pass, a new solution that creates a seamless way for pay TV subscribers to access premium content across the web with just one sign in and does not require additional downloads. This solution makes it easy for pay TV subscribers to watch premium content on virtually any Internet connected device, including Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS, Blackberry and Google TV.
For TV providers and broadcasters, Adobe provides a secure, hosted solution, that has minimal integration work to perform as they pull together their many different online viewing options.
At the same time, these companies can offer their customers the anytime, anywhere content that they crave, eliminating a complicated validation process that requires many registrations and downloads.
Adobe Pass leverages the Flash Platform for a seamless high-quality experience along with Adobe Flash Access® for enhanced security. Adobe Pass also utilizes HTML 5 for devices where Adobe Flash technology is not yet available.
Industry leaders already working with Adobe Pass include Turner Broadcasting System Inc., MTV Networks, Comcast and Synacor (on behalf of DISH Network’s DISHOnline.com and others).
