The service made its debut along with the new premium sports channel Orange Sport with Irdeto CA, which is being managed on an ongoing basis, also including encryption for DVB services for STBs and CAMs.
Commenting on the development, Karol Flak, TV unit manager, Orange Slovensko, said: “The launch of our new DTH service in Slovakia is part of our ongoing plan to provide the best possible service to our customers, both in terms of content and accessibility.
“An effective managed service to ensure secure delivery of content is crucial to this success and Irdeto’s ability to provide a flexible business model which fully meets our requirements and expectations, combined with its strong track record in secure pay TV delivery, makes it the perfect partner to help us to achieve our goals.”
