Own tuners as the main access to its service instead of habitual cards. That’s what is offered by Xtra TV, a satellite TV provider, starting this May.
When starting its business Xtra TV viewed a card access system as an advantage and privilege while it was compatible with a majority of satellite tuners thus allowing to reach a wider audience. The system’s side effect, such as cardsharing was , however , brought to life .
“As of today it is high time that the Xtra TV new development stage should be introduced since the media group channels are to be encrypted on the satellite before long and therefore Xtra TV is intent to shut down its own cardsharing. By the year end all channels accessible in Xtra TV will switch over to Verimatrix encryption and you might say goodbye to the cards for all,” says Oleksiy Kurakin, MGU Director for Development.
“ This autumn, following the media group channels encryption on the satellite new Xtra TV satellite tuners would enable its users to watch popular channels without replacement of the old equipment. The tuner will therefore function as a universal device. It will also enable the viewers to watch the programming in HD quality which is quite relevant for the market offering rather outdated devices for receiving satellite TV. Our users will be offered special price terms and thus new devices would become a good bargain for those who favour satellite television in Ukraine.”, says Borys Danylov, Director , Digital Screens (a company owner of Xtra TV).
