A new innovative app-based streaming service, OnPrime TV developed by Cisco in collaboration with Sky, and supported by Encompass Digital Media has been launched for consumers in the UK, Italy, and Germany to access popular foreign language films, television, and news channels in one place.

Powered by the Cisco Infinite Video Platform, OnPrime TV offers viewers access to high-quality foreign language linear content. The service includes Sky South Asian, Sky Arabic, and Sky Russian channel packs, downlinked and encoded by Encompass. Cisco plans to expand the service to more devices and additional European countries during 2017.

Cisco is building the simplified, automated, and virtualized network platform of the future based on industry-leading software, systems, silicon, and services. This enables service providers, media, and web companies worldwide to reduce costs, speed, time-to-market, secure their networks, and sustain profitable growth.
