BeIN secures content delivery with new Irdeto deal

BeIN has signed a three-year deal with Irdeto. The deal will enable the network to further secure the delivery of its live sports and entertainment content to customers across the region through Irdeto’s Conditional Access Solution.

“As a growing brand providing premium content across the MENA region, it’s important that we work to secure the investment that we put into showing high-value live sports and entertainment content. In doing so, we can continue to focus on providing the best experience and the latest technology for our customers,” said Yousef Al-Obaidly, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, beIN Media Group.

“Live sports and entertainment are prime targets for online pirates, and beIN is committed to fighting piracy and protecting its business,” added Doug Lowther, CEO, Irdeto.

“We applaud beIN’s proactive approach to anti-piracy and protecting high value content – particularly important for live sports with its high costs and extremely limited monetization window.”
