I have spent 25 years at the forefront of innovation in the pay-TV industry from the initial launch of subscription services on Sky Television in the UK, through independent access onto the satellite platform, the switch from analogue to digital terrestrial television to IPTV and mobile services in the UK, Africa and Asia.
Paywizard was set up to exploit internationally the technology and experience that had been developed over many years at MGt. Unrivalled experience in designing and building systems to support broadcasters face the challenges of tomorrow by monetising content and services on multiple devices and across multiple territories. Clients such Racing UK, Nigerian Broadcasting Commission and Asian Vision have since turned to Paywizard to support them on their journey.
Following the introduction of open access regulations in the EU, MGt was initially launched to provide independent broadcasters with the state of the art technology and services to manage their subscribers across all platforms and devices in the UK. High profile clients such as UDirect Films, BT Sports and Setanta Sports naturally turned to us for advice and support to launch their services.
I developed one of the most sophisticated subscription management operations in the world to support the most advanced and innovative range of television services anywhere at that time. From launching a single analogue pay-TV channel to managing multi-channel services with millions of subscribers.
