PayWizard provides platform authentication for BT Sport

Thursday 31 October 2013 | 10:45 CET | News
BT has selected enterprise-class software from PayWizard, specialists in subscriber management and billing for multi-screen media, to provide platform authentication for BT Sport. The PayWizard software has connected BT's internal subscriber management system (SMS) to Sky's conditional access (CA) system. It has enabled Sky customers in the UK and Northern Ireland to subscribe to the new BT Sport channels and view them through their existing set top box. PayWizard has been providing similar platform authentication services to channels on the Sky platform for more than 15 years.
