UPC DTH launches CI+ with Neotion

Liberty Global-owned DTH operator UPC DTH has launched a CI+ offering in partnership with conditional access module supplier Neotion.

Neotion will supply CI+ 1.3 CAMs to UPC DTH, which include the ability to set and change personal profiles. The move will enable UPC DTH’s subscribers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, where it operates under the freeSAT brand, to receive its signals without the need for a set-top box.

The CI+ offering will be extended to UPC Direct customers in Hungary at a later date.

“In addition to our existing product line, we are pleased to see the availability of this new CI+ module for our customers. This flexible equipment will allow them to fully enjoy our services easily, as well as take advantage of the lower priced packages we make available for customers who purchase their own receivers and related equipment,” said Jim Helfgott, vice-president of marketing and sales for UPC DTH. “As a customer focused company, it is our priority to come up with new ideas and innovations that improve the user experience. We could not imagine a better partner than Neotion and its teams to achieve this goal.”
