The Revue offers access to subscription services like Netflix, and also open Internet access to other download-to-own and rental models. Irdeto has had a relationship with Netflix, which Irdeto's David Vogel told me yesterday helped the company understand the key security issues and speed integration. Cloakware helps secure the user authentication process and other digital assets.
Google TV is still a very new product, but it has already run into hiccups gaining access to free content, with most major broadcast TV networks and Hulu blocking their programs. The premise of being able to access paid and free, premium and independent video, all through one box, still remains an exciting prospect however.
