  • Publication number: 20070265978
    Abstract: Secure content transfer systems and methods to operate the same are disclosed. An example system includes a content server to encrypt content according to an encryption key, and to transfer the encrypted content, the encryption key and a license to a client that supports a digital rights management technology. The example system further includes a broadcast system headend to determine the encryption key, wherein the broadcast system headend is physically separate from the content server, and a digital rights management license server to provide the license.

  • Publication number: 20070266414
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to provide content on demand in content broadcast systems are disclosed. An example method comprises receiving a first portion of a program via broadcast signal and receiving a second portion of the program via an Internet protocol (IP) based signal. The example method may further comprise combining the first and the second portions and at least one of store the combined first and second portions in a file or playback the combined first and second portions.

  • Publication number: 20070265970
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to conditionally authorize content delivery at receivers in pay delivery systems are disclosed. An example receiver station includes a receiver interface to receive a broadcast signal, and a controller to, for a selected program, generate an authorization request and a content request. The example receiver station also includes a network interface to transmit the authorization request, to transmit the content request to point-to-point content delivery server, and to receive the program from the point-to-point content delivery server.

  • Publication number: 20070118770
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for storing and retrieving program material for subsequent replay is disclosed. The method comprises the steps of receiving a data stream comprising the program material encrypted according to a first encryption key, decrypting the program material; re-encrypting the program material according to a second encryption key; and storing the re-encrypted material in a media storage device. The program material is played back by retrieving the re-encrypted material from the media storage device and decrypting the re-encrypted program material. In one embodiment, the second encryption key is derived from metadata describing replay rights. In a further embodiment, the media storage device also stores the second encryption key which has been further encrypted by a key that is unique to the device used to receive the program material.

  • Publication number: 20050249350
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and article of manufacture provide the ability to process digital media content. A secret key (Ka) is obtained and encrypted into an authorization key message (AKM) message. One or more entitlement keys (Ke) are then obtained and encrypted using the secret key (Ka) as an encryption key into an entitlement management message (EMM). One or more media content encryption keys (Kc) are obtained and encrypted using one or more of the entitlement keys (Ke) as encryption keys into an entitlement control message (ECM). Digital media data content (Dc) is then obtained and encrypted using the one or more media content encryption keys (Kc). The AKM, EMM, ECM, and encrypted digital media data content are then delivered to a set-top box that is configured to provide digital media services with the content.
