An embodiment of the present invention adopts a modular client and server architecture to accommodate the needs of large broadband service providers (BSP). It will evolve the current monolithic software platform to a modular architecture based on the Open Services Gateway (OSGI) model, which supports a standards-based application service framework. This service framework allows the development, secure distribution, event collection and life cycle management IPTV applications to the client without requiring a software build. Customization of applications would be inherent in the design. BSPs would be provided a mechanism to manage and entitle applications, which are deployed on their networks.
