Intact Media Group is one of the most important multimedia platforms in Romania.
How do we provide TV viewers with a way of watching their favorite shows on demand, wherever they are?
We created an app that allows users to watch shows from 13 different TV channels, on demand. We also provided a live stream option for all the TV channels.
The app is integrated with the client’s own web-based video on demand service through a series of APIs and features adaptive bitrate for all videos as well as an integrated DRM system (digital rights management).
Users need to sign up for the service to get the option to view free content and, by purchasing a monthly subscription, to access all other available content.
While we’ve updated the app over the years, back in 2014 this was the first video streaming app we had the opportunity to work on. We got to learn more about how people “consume” video through mobile apps and now have a much better understanding of DRM systems.
