Release date- 16052016 - BOSTON, INTX - Cisco and Roku Inc. today announce a collaboration to enable the Cisco VideoGuard Everywhere video service protection solution on Roku streaming players and Roku TVs.

Initial features and services the solution will be able to support for the Spectrum TV app for Roku devices will now include secure video on demand (VoD) and linear content playback, as well as control of the number of devices used simultaneously per subscriber account.

'We have been working closely with Roku to deliver a lower-cost, easy-to-deploy software security solution leading to innovative services like the Spectrum TV app on the Roku platform,' said Rajeev Raman, senior director of Strategy, Studio Design, and Product Management, Video Software and Solutions, Cisco. 'Charter has been a pioneer in the industry for downloadable security to give its customers more options to watch what they want on the devices they want in their homes.'

'Utilizing the fast growing Roku streaming platform in combination with the Cisco VideoGuard Everywhere security solution enables operators to simply and securely deliver their branded video streaming services to the home, and optimally manage digital sharing rights for their content library,' said Andrew Ferrone, vice president of pay TV at Roku. 'With this powerful combination, Charter continues to offer its pay-TV customers unique options to watch TV in ways that fit their lifestyles.'

Charter is deploying the VideoGuard Everywhere solution across its systems, including the Worldbox and Charter Spectrum TV apps on a wide range of consumer electronic devices such as PCs, tablets and phones.

'We are always looking ahead for ways to make our customer experience better, providing more flexibility and options for accessing the television content people want to watch,' said Jim Blackley, executive vice president, Engineering and IT, Charter. 'By expanding the Cisco downloadable security solution to our Spectrum TV App channel on Roku streaming devices, we can better control device streaming rights and functions within the home without compromising on the experience.'
