Subscription-Based Entitlement and Multilingual Support for OTT Video Services

Over-the-top (OTT) video services have become increasingly popular in recent years, with more and more people turning to these platforms for their video content needs. To provide a seamless and personalized experience to users, it is essential for OTT video services to offer subscription-based entitlement and multi-lingual support.

Subscription-based entitlement

Subscription-based entitlement refers to the access rights granted to a user based on their subscription status. OTT video services typically offer multiple subscription tiers, with each tier offering different levels of access to content. For example, a basic subscription may offer limited access to content, while a premium subscription may offer access to all content on the platform.

To manage subscription-based entitlement, OTT video services require a robust and scalable backend infrastructure. This infrastructure must be able to handle a large number of users, support different subscription tiers, and provide real-time access to user entitlement data.

Multilingual support

Multi-lingual support refers to the ability of OTT video services to provide content in multiple languages. With a global user base, it is essential for OTT video services to offer content in different languages to cater to the diverse needs of their users.

To provide multilingual support, OTT video services require a sophisticated content management system (CMS) that can handle multiple languages. The CMS must be able to support different languages for metadata, captions, and subtitles. Additionally, the platform must be able to deliver content in the user's preferred language based on their location and language settings.
