Saskatchewan Telecommunications (SaskTel) will deploy Widevine Technologies Inc.’s "Virtual SmartCard" to provide security for its video-broadcast and video-on-demand content, the companies announced Wednesday.

SaskTel launched what it called the first Internet-protocol-broadcast service over digital subscriber line in 2002, adding VOD last year.

Widevine said its Virtual SmartCard solution significantly lowers the costs of securing content over video networks.
