Use a Partner

PlayReady can be licensed directly from Microsoft if you're a company that needs the development or distribution rights that are granted under PlayReady legal agreements (e.g. access to PlayReady source code). But in many scenarios, companies can also work with a 3rd party company that has a PlayReady agreement in place and provides PlayReady as an offering. Learn more on our partners page.

Use Microsoft Azure

For PlayReady Server, many companies choose Microsoft Azure. Azure Media Services makes it easy to use high-definition video encoding and streaming services to reach audiences on today's most popular devices. Azure Media Services also enables you to extract richer metadata though video AI, improve accessibility, distribution, and scalability —all while protecting your content.
