Pay DTT has become a reality. Although the analogue-digital switchover is still underway, it is widely known that the next step will be the implementation of a Pay TV system operating on the current DTT network.
The main players offering this new service have tended to be existing operators, among which special mention should be made of Mediapro, who were the first to offer a Pay DTT service through their GolTV channel. As its name would suggest, football is the driving force behind the first steps that have been taken along the path offered by this new TV concept.
Among other events, GolTV offers two live matches from the Spanish First Division every weekend, one of which will always be either Barcelona or Real Madrid. The channel also shows games from other leagues and other sporting events.
Receivers which are suitable for DTT use and which have been approved by the government have to include embedded encryption systems. Nagra is one such receiver.
This official approval is due to the fact that Nagra is banded within the “premium” receiver category and is is also a result of the universal nature of the device in terms of implementing encryption systems.
The premium Televés receiver is a Q-Bo Premium ref. 7152 which will offer a key service to the market right at the time when Pay DTT appears on the scene.
This is a very compact receiver, yet nevertheless one which is big on performance. It features a multiple connection as well as a simple and easy to use menu.
As one would expect from a leading company, Televés are once again at the technological cutting edge, providing support to the market at the most important times for the sector.
