Building on an agreement with Netflix announced in January NAGRA, a digital TV division of the Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) says it has completed "the first steps" toward offering the ability to deploy Netflix via set-top boxes using the NAGRA anyCAST CONNECT client and NAGRA OpenTV 5 connectware. NAGRA is in the process of integrating the Netflix application SDK 4.2 into the OpenTV 5 connectware. The combination will be optimized for set-top boxes and other CPE, NAGRA says. Meanwhile, Netflix is adopting NAGRA PRM as a Netflix-supported DRM, as it meets the Netflix SDK robustness guidelines and content security requirements thanks to the NAGRA-On-Chip Security (NOCS) hardware root of trust, NAGRA asserts. NAGRA PRM is part of NAGRA´s new anyCAST CONNECT converged CAS/DRM client. NAGRA says it will announce the first pay-TV operators to adopt the joint offering sometime next year.
