Premium Content Task Force

GlobalPlatform established the Premium Content Task Force in 2012 in response to the growing consumption of premium content on mobile devices, tablets, set-top boxes and smart TVs, and the requirement for the content to be hosted in a protected and secure environment. The group recognizes that stakeholders need to have clearly defined standards to ensure market consistency, promote product confidence and encourage a commercially viable ecosystem. The task force continues to work with content copyright holders, aggregators, technology providers and device manufacturers to further understand the security requirements needed to protect this form of content.

The task force is working to identify the key business and use cases in this market segment. It is also collaborating with the relevant technical committees to ensure that GlobalPlatform Specifications can be enhanced to provide compelling solutions to the market.

The group currently comprises 58 GlobalPlatform member companies.
