Dutch cable operator Ziggo has begun commercialising the availability of its digital TV service via CI Plus modules, making it the first country globally to adopt the new standard, which enables digital TV to be received via conditional access modules without the need to acquire new equipment such as set-top boxes.
Ziggos CAMs are now available from retail outlets, and will become available via the companyÂs website from the beginning of October, priced Â79. The move will enable Ziggo customers to upgrade to digital by inserting the CAM into compatible integrated digital TV sets withoutÂ the need to use a separate set-top and remote control, seen as a significant barrier to uptake. The cable operator has currently certified TV sets from Sony and Samsung, and is working with Philips on certifying the latterÂs products.Â
