Cisco and Roku announced a collaboration to enable the Cisco VideoGuard Everywhere video service protection solution to be placed on the Spectrum TV app available on Roku streaming players and Roku TVs, enabling pay-TV operators to secure their content distribution to a wide variety of devices. 

VideoGuard Everywhere is a software-based video service protection solution encompassing Conditional Access (CA) and Digital Rights Management (DRM).

According to Roku, the solution will be pre-integrated into Roku firmware while existing Roku devices will be automatically upgraded to the solution. The solution will initially support services such as secure video on demand (VoD) and linear content playback, as well as control the number of devices used simultaneously per subscriber account, said Cisco.
