Case Study: MultiChoice Combats Piracy and Ensures Content License Compliance with GeoGuard

MultiChoice needed to stop piracy and comply with rights owners’ requirements for territorial exclusivity. Account sharing and the creation of suspicious user accounts were also problems. The company turned to GeoGuard for help.

“We have been impressed by GeoGuard – it works seamlessly in the background to safeguard our content for legitimate users, ensures territorial exclusivity and helps us comply with our content distribution obligations with rights owners. From an OTT broadcaster perspective, the cost savings and efficiency it’s providing in our streaming infrastructure is a huge bonus.”

– Greg van Wyngaard, Senior Engineer, MultiChoice Group
