Mobstar will Viaccess-Orca’s Prime Sentinel smart card-based conditional access system.
Mobistar’s cable-based service is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of this year following the introduction of regulations that enable alternative operators to access cable networks.
Orange-owned mobile operator Mobistar plans to expand into TV and broadband services using Telenet and Brutélé-Tecteo’s networks.
The company paid €600,000 to each operator for access to their networks in January. Under the open access regulations Telenet and Brutélé-Tecteo now have six months to put in place the infrastructure that will allow Mobistar to implement a service.
“The collaboration with Viaccess-Orca will enable us to offer Belgian consumers competitive cable TV services,” said Jean Marc Harion, CEO of Mobistar. “Viaccess-Orca’s Prime Sentinel exceeds our requirements for content protection to guarantee the security of our television content and revenue streams.”
