Protect your OTT App content


Since you spent time and effort to create your videos, you should protect those videos from unauthorized use. Use the following table to determine which content protection method is best for your business needs.

Content Protection MethodDescription
GeoblockingThis method ensures your content can only be watched in countries where you have the content rights and monetization means.

For unauthorized viewers, geoblocked content will not appear on any screens of your OTT Apps.

You can set geoblocking rules from your JWP dashboard. These rules can be applied to a single video, a selection of videos, or an entire library.
Token SigningThis method ensures your content can only be watched from your own OTT Apps:

• Viewers cannot "hot link" from another website or application.
• All content within your library is protected.
• Unauthorized viewers cannot play content outside of your OTT Apps.

Token signing must be enabled from your JWP dashboard and configured in your OTT Apps.

We recommend that you work with your JWP representative to enable this protection.
DRM Protection

Studio DRM with JW Platform
Studio DRM Standalone
Ensures your content cannot be intercepted and downloaded from your OTT Apps:

• All content within a DRM-enabled property is protected.
• Authorized viewers cannot download your content.
• Unauthorized viewers can neither play nor download your content.

This is the most comprehensive content protection method.

Since enabling DRM protection is a technical process, we strongly recommend that you work with your JWP representative to configure and enable this protection.

NOTE: An additional cost is associated with serving and managing DRM licenses.
