Dutch cable operator Ziggo will be the first company to implement the CI+ module, which will be used by up to one million digital TV subscribers. Irdeto said that by adopting CI+, its customers will have the ability to give customers increased content protection providing a secure interface between the conditional accessÂ and hosts, such as integrated digital TVs and common interface set-top boxes.
