Dish TV India deploys Broadpeak solutions


Broadpeak, a content delivery network (CDN) provider, has recently announced that Dish TV India is using its solutions for its OTT service, Watcho, with HB LLP as the systems integrator of the project.

‘We knew that if we wanted to deliver on-the-go, snackable content on connected devices, the quality of experience had to match that of our traditional DTH service,’ said V K Gupta, CTO of Dish TV India. ‘Broadpeak’s OTT delivery solutions are pre-integrated with key ecosystem vendors, enabling us to launch Watcho quickly and seamlessly. Thanks to the scalable nature of Broadpeak’s server and CDN manager, we can deliver high-quality content to more than 23.9m existing subscribers and reach new customers too.’

Watcho is able to deliver over 100 channels as well as a vast selection of library content such as live, on-demand, time-shift TV and catch-up TV to Android and iOS mobile devices.

Dish TV India is currently using the BkS350 origin and packaging server by Broadpeak to record linear services in a single format as well as packaging the content into HLS and DASH formats for time-shifted TV services via the cloud. The BkS350 is reportedly flexible and scalable which allows Dish India TV to use several forms of internal storage. Broadpeak’s BkM100 video delivery mediator is also being used to monitor the popularity of content. Popular content is pushed to the edge servers and long-tail content stays in the central library to reduce Dish TV India’s storage costs.

‘Having an OTT offering is a must for operators looking to drive business growth, and Watcho will help Dish TV engage with its existing DTH subscribers more effectively, and pull in new subscribers,’ said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. ‘At Broadpeak we have established a strong ecosystem with trusted partners, taking the guesswork and complexity out of launching OTT services. Not only are our CDN solutions for video streaming efficient and cost-saving, they also guarantee exceptional quality experiences on any screen.’
