Antix enables consumers to download and play their HD quality, certified native games virally on to their STBs, TVs, phones, tablets and PCs. Users can play with their friends on the move and in the home on their digital devices, whether or not they are connected to a network and can distribute games much in the way they can their music, video and pictures. All user payment models are supported and can be localized to optimize monetization for service providers and publishers. A single SKU will work across all supported devices utilizing Antix’ unique Triple Lock Game Security System, improving protection for the consumer from viruses and reducing content piracy. The service is deployed using either Antix’ or 3rd party content stores with associated payment gateways. Antix, founded in 2007 by World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, Francis Charig, delivers an integrated, next generation TV, STB, mobile and multi-screen service even across highly fragmented networks. The Antix Game Service has now been mandated by operators, broadcasters and device manufacturers, and Antix works with an increasing number of the world’s leading games publishers.
