BuyDRM Delivers Over 10B Licenses in 2019

ZEE5 Selects BuyDRM’s KeyOS Multi-DRM Platform

May 13th, 2020 – Austin, TX – BuyDRM announced today that in 2019, the award-winning KeyOS platform delivered over 10 Billion licenses to consumers of streaming and downloadable content in over 130 countries and territories around the globe.  BuyDRM enables movie studios and content distributors to protect their digital video with studio-approved multi-DRM services and solutions. This digital video is encrypted and once delivered to a user, playback is only possible when a license key is delivered to their playback platform.

KeyOS is an award-winning, studio-approved multi-DRM platform for premium content distribution. The MultiKey Service provides a robust, scalable solution for secure premium content delivery in both live and VOD formats. BuyDRM prides itself on being one of the largest, if not the largest, distributor of DRM license keys in the world. KeyOS is capable of supporting 100B license key deliveries a year using a variety of in-house developed technologies including the KeyOS MultiKey Server for Linux and Windows.

BuyDRM also announced that ZEE5 has renewed their MultiKey Services with BuyDRM for another year. Since its inception, ZEE5 has rolled out 100+ original shows across multiple genres.  Zee5 has crossed 100 million+ gross downloads since launch on the Play Store and recorded a peak of 11.4 miillion DAUs as of Dec 2019.

Tarun Katial, CEO, ZEE5 India, said, “As India’s largest producer of original content, we were seeking a partner who could handle a massive amount of user traffic that our platform witnesses from around the world. In BuyDRM, we had a partner who meticulously managed the delivery of billions of license keys to our audiences and is well-positioned to drive our next stage of growth in 2020.” 

“ZEE5 represents the penultimate distributor of streaming and downloadable content as one of the largest video distribution platforms in existence” said BuyDRM Co-Founder and Chairman, Ron Baker. “ZEE5 has more active users per month in India and other operating regions than America’s oldest and most pervasive SVOD service does here in the United States.”
