Along with subscriber management, Paywizard will enable content providers to be associated with the NetRange platform whilst selling their own content
London, 12 August 2015 – Paywizard, the specialist in subscriber management for pay-TV, today announces that it has been selected by NetRange, to power subscriber management for its pay-TV and TVoD customers. Using its AgileTM platform, Paywizard will enable NetRange to increase subscriber acquisition, retention, up-sell and cross-sell. Paywizard will also grow NetRange’s TV business with a number of tailored services that will drive revenues and boost profitability.
Available in over 96 countries, NetRange is one of the world’s most successful service providers for the development of Smart TV applications and services. It works with major broadcasters, global sports series and leagues, kids and fitness content providers, music portals, as well as a wide choice of VoD services and other video companies. NetRange required a system that could deliver subscriber management and cope with the vast number of merchants on its platform. With Paywizard AgileTM, NetRange can support its subscribers and content providers, enabling them to sell their own content.
“Viewers today want to be able to view a range of content in one place, but don’t want to go through the hassle of signing-up and paying every time they want to watch something different. For us, being able to support content providers, and provide subscribers with a hassle-free service, is our number one priority,” said Jan Wendt, CEO of NetRange. “Paywizard is a recognised leader in pay-TV subscription management and understood the challenge of having multiple content providers on our platform. The Paywizard AgileTM platform provides us with a wealth of functionality, not only ensuring subscribers can pay for their favourite content simply, but that as a business, we can also drive revenues.”
Paywizard AgileTM will provide NetRange with the marketing tools it needs to attract new subscribers and retain and up-sell existing ones. In addition to subscriber management, the AgileTM platform will allow NetRange to support more than one content provider during the setup, selling and reporting of their respective subscriptions. Subscribers will be able to buy content on the NetRange platform without having to re-register each time they want to buy content from a different provider.
“In today’s increasingly competitive TV landscape, service providers want to be able to offer as much content as possible in one place- but that means being able to support sign-up, payment and authentication as well as subscriber management functionality,” said Jonathan Guthrie, CEO at Paywizard. “The Paywizard AgileTM platform is designed for pay-TV, which means that it not only makes the life of a subscriber easier, it also helps businesses to prosper. We are thrilled that NetRange chose our platform to meet all its pay-TV needs and we look forward to putting the profit into its service.”
Paywizard will be launching with NetRange this summer.
Paywizard will also be bringing its AgileTM platform to IBC 2015. Visitors to the show will be able to see the first-hand demonstrations of the platform on the Paywizard stand (#14.G14).
