PRISA Televisión, S.A.U. (PRISA TV) is an audiovisual company, which is a holding of the Spanish media group PRISA, and the owner of CANAL+, a leading digital entertainment platform in Spain with more than 1.8 million subscribers. PRISA TV has emerged as a top brand in the world of audiovisual content, with 23 television channels, including nine versions of CANAL+ and 14 channels specializing in sports, cinema, documentaries, children’s programs, and music.
Technological innovation has always played a key role in the development of PRISA TV. The company launched the first pay-TV service in Spain, was the first to provide satellite television, and pioneered digital high-definition television, 3D broadcasts, and interactive television. Through its new multiscreen offering, CANAL+ Yomvi, PRISA TV is also the first television broadcaster in Spain that empowers consumers to enjoy their preferred CANAL+ content as video on demand on any device—such as connected television, tablet, smart phone, and personal computer.
As PRISA Televisión grew and expanded its product offerings, it faced growing IT management requirements to ensure high availability of the IT platforms that support its programming.
