PHOENIX--()--Subscription-based direct broadcast satellite service provider Dish Mexico announced today that they selected Octoshape, an industry leader in cloud-based streaming technology, for the expansion of Dish content across broadband multiscreen devices within Mexico.

With a line-up of at least 30 over-the-air and public channels, Dish Mexico is the first broadcaster in Mexico to offer live and on-demand, multiscreen broadcast services over the Internet. Dish Mexico will leverage Octoshape’s patented Infinite HD-MTM stream acceleration technologies for both live and on-demand streaming for a full bouquet of content including sports, cultural, ethnic and arts channels. The technology has been selected to achieve a consistent, high-quality video playback across any device for a differentiated service targeted at existing and new subscribers.

“In order to reach top customer satisfaction, we work with our tier one content providers to position their content in the best way possible to our subscriber base,” said Carlos Miranda Matzumoto, Chief Technology Officer of Dish Mexico. “After an extensive technology review whereby we assessed every technology available, we concluded that Octoshape was able to consistently meet all of the requirements we had for quality, user-interface and predictable flat-rate pricing models.”

Octoshape’s extensive solution set includes IP contribution and distribution services of more than 30 live channels to multiscreen devices coupled with content authentication, DVR functionality per stream, geo-blocking and other key services.

“When Dish Mexico approached us, it was clear they had set out to raise the bar in the industry of what ‘quality’ should mean to their end-users,” said Michael Koehn, CEO of Octoshape. “This partnership is yet another great example of how Pay TV operators are adapting to the changing broadcasting industry where high-quality, multiscreen delivery is rapidly becoming a key element to expansion strategies.”
