Nigerian pay TV platform Continental Satellite Limited (Consat) has signed a conditional access modules (CAM) deal with Kudelski Group-owned company, SmarDTV.
The DTH satellite operator’s pay TV service will soon be available via any integrated digital televisions (iDTVs) that incorporate a CI+ interface, having already launched using Nagra’s anyCAST content protection system.
Consat CEO, Mayokun Okunola, said that “iDTVs with satellite tuners combined with a conditional access module is an attractive way to provide a high-quality service encouraging customers towards digital TV” and claimed that Consat will become “the satellite platform of choice for low to middle income earners in Nigeria.”
Jerome Vial, vice-president of sales at SmarDTV, said: “The SmarDTV CAM module is a compelling plug-in solution that enables consumers to enjoy premium channels directly on their iDTVs without an external box. We welcome the arrival of iDTVs with common interface slots on the African continent and are excited to see Consat benefit from this technology as they pursue their digitisation efforts.”
