BBTV NEXT is a multi-channel service offering 50 channels, including Disney Life, AXN and Fox.

This will allow BBTV NEXT to be DRM Microsoft PlayReady in a fast turnaround time, providing the critical security needed to enable BBTV NEXT’s Japanese subscribers to view premium content on mobile devices.

According to a study from MM Research Institute, a Japanese market trend and research firm, the total number of smartphone video viewers in Japan is expected to more than triple from 12.3 million to 38.4 million between 2011 and 2016. This increase is attributed to rising smartphone use and LTE (Long Term Evolution) subscriptions in the heavily-wired country.
