MUMBAI: Astro, the Malaysia-based cross-media broadcaster and direct-to-home (DTH) satellite pay-TV operator, has partnered with Irdeto, the firm which deals in securing and delivering premium content and digital assets.

Additionally, Irdeto will power mobile access to live matches via Astro sister company Maxis, offering exclusive streaming of all matches, replays and highlights.

“Astro understands platforms in terms of TV, radio, online and other media; we understand our customers and their surrounding communities, their diversity and their trends.

We target ‘best in class’ partnerships and strive for integration within our partner roadmaps, leveraging our regional expertise,” said Astro CTO Paul Dale.

“We are happy to partner with them to take the World Cup experience far past traditional broadcast for Malaysians,” Dale added.
