INSIDE Secure (NYSE Euronext INSD), a leader in embedded solutions for
securing transactions, content and digital identity, today announced it has
teamed with Astral Television Networks, Canada’s largest broadcaster of
English- and French-language pay and specialty television services, to protect
the delivery of more than 1,000 hours of high-definition quality programming
from The Movie Network, HBO Canada and The Movie Network Encore to
subscribers’ iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini and iPod touch devices. Astral is using
the INSIDE downloadable DRM Fusion Agent in its new TMN GO mobile app, which
subscribers can download to their iOS devices to view premium video content
from Astral’s newly launched The Movie Network GO (TMN GO), HBO GO Canada and
TMN Encore GO video streaming services in Canada.

“Our TMN GO video streaming service and the TMN GO mobile app are the latest
in a long history of innovations from Astral and TMN, and we believe they will
be a game changer for our business by providing our subscribers with
unprecedented choice, control and convenience in enjoying premium
entertainment across multiple platforms,” said Domenic Vivolo, Senior Vice
President, Sales and Marketing, Astral Television Networks. “The INSIDE DRM
Fusion Agent software provides us the flexibility to deploy TMN GO on other
major mobile platforms in the future as needed.”

With a sleek cinematic design and interface that offers superior
functionality, TMN GO, HBO GO Canada and TMN Encore GO are best-in-class
services that allow subscribers to engage with more than 1,000 hours of
premium content. The services are currently available in Eastern Canada to
customers of Bell TV, Rogers and Cogeco Cable, with additional television
providers expected to join in the coming months.

“Astral has created an advanced video streaming service that offers
subscribers unprecedented features and functionality, including the ability to
watch up to three streams simultaneously on up to five registered devices over
Wi-Fi or 3G networks, and the ability to start watching on one device and
continue on another,” said Dr. Simon Blake-Wilson, INSIDE Vice President of
Embedded Security Solutions. “We are proud that our downloadable DRM Fusion
Agent is able to play a pivotal role in enabling such flexibility and
convenience while protecting the premium entertainment content.”

About 60 million mobile apps with downloadable DRM Fusion Agent software
embedded in them have already been downloaded by consumers worldwide,
protecting billions of premium content playbacks. It offers developers the
critical Microsoft PlayReady, Windows Media DRM, OMA DRM 2.X, and/or
UltraViolet security they need in their mobile apps to enable premium content
to be played on Apple iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10-based mobile devices.
Approved for use by Apple, Microsoft, RIM and all the major Hollywood studios,

packaging, licensing and key management for multiple mobile device platforms
and operating systems.

The INSIDE downloadable DRM Fusion Agent software allows protected high-value

services and support a variety of business models, including ad-supported and
