Netflix representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
OpenTV said it filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. OpenTV is represented by Kirkland & Ellis LLP.
Kudelski, whose holdings include conditional-access vendor Nagravision, acquired the portion of San Francisco-based OpenTV it did not already own in 2009.
OpenTV says its software is integrated in more than 160 million set-tops worldwide, enabling video-on-demand, digital video recording, advanced advertising and enhanced TV applications. Customers have included Time Warner Cable, Comcast Spotlight, Dish Network, Charter Communications, NBCUniversal and Suddenlink Communications.
