FTA DD Freedish to soon encrypt with MPEG-4
#1
With nearly 60 channels in its roster, Freedish plans to encrypt future channels with MPEG-4 compression technology to take it up to 110. Speaking exclusively to indiantelevision.com, Doordarshan deputy director general CK Jain said that the auction for the encrypted channels will happen in November with the commercial roll out of set top boxes (STBs) soon after. “48 channels will be on MPEG-4 and 64 on MPEG-2. Viewers who opt for MPEG-4 STBs will be able to view a total of 112 channels, including the FTA ones,”

The extended version of Freedish will have two streams of MPEG-4 and four of MPEG-2 so that the existing subscribers can continue watching the FTA channels. Currently the DTH service has five transponders on Insat 4B and will be soon getting an additional one, taking its tally to six. “The two encrypted streams will allow us to know definite subscriber numbers,” he adds.

So SUN Direct will vacate the TP in INSAT 4B once they get additional TP in Measat 3B!?

This also seems like our TN Paper 'Arikais'. I am seeing these kinds of statements for the past 1 year and nothing have happened. Why they should encrypt their channels when the deocder is not going to be charged monthly?

If those channels worry about Piracy then already cable tv operators are showing channels from DTH because these channels don't give decoders to individual operators. But only to MSO.
