has launched service with Merlin Interactive
to securely view premium Warner Bros. television content at www.wbla.com
. Using any platform, consumers can log onto WBLA.com on Mondays following the Thursday and Sunday broadcasts of shows like "Gossip Girl" to stream entire episodes in secure Flash. Because the content is both secure and in Flash format it circumvents any barriers for consumers given Flash's compatibility with both PCs and Macs. Widevine's security supports all formats, browsers and operating systems. Merlin Interactive is managing, implementing and servicing this complete solution for the Warner Channel and also is providing extensive Flash development, integration and workflow design.
Merlin Interactive offers a playlist and other advanced interactive services for consumers across 23 territories in Latin America. This offering is promoted on Warner Bros. broadcasts and directs consumers who enjoyed the episode, or those who missed the broadcast window, to view the online offering streamed in high resolution Flash for free. Merlin expects to expand this relationship within the vast portfolio of media companies they service with complete interactive and design services throughout Latin America.
