MPP Global’s Identity Management, CRM and eCommerce platform, eSuite, has been shortlisted in the Best Live Online TV Service category of the TV Connect Industry Awards 2015.

The TV Connect Industry Awards are seen as the main awards night for the Digital and Multiscreen TV industry and they celebrate excellence, innovation and achievements in the global IP, TV and connected entertainment markets.

The MPP Global entry featured a case study for its most recent project with Sky’s headline OTT service, NOW TV.  For over 10 years, MPP Global has helped Sky launch pioneering services such as Sky Go and NOW TV, keeping Sky at the cutting edge of technology and allowing the company to remain ahead of its competitors.

Launched in 2013, NOW TV is a non-contract Video on Demand service powered by Sky TV. eSuite enables entitlements, subscriptions, payments, billing and device management, together with advanced offers, vouchers and incentives.

MPP Global’s fully integrated cloud technology enables Sky to offer easy access and flexible pricing packages whilst maintaining the highest levels of security, providing a seamless service to NOW TV customers.

The entries in the Best Live Online TV Service category are judged on how the solution or service has enhanced the TV experience, enabling end users to engage with content in a new way and generate new monetisation opportunities.

This year’s judging panel, featuring a number of the Connected100, decided on the shortlist featuring all the most advanced technologies and solutions in the industry and we’re looking forward to disclosing how cutting edge all these entries are at the TV Connect Awards ceremony on April 29.”
