Media Group Ukraine (MGU) is fighting piracy very successfully, according to Alexander Remezovsky, the company’s director of the distribution of paid channels and media platforms.
Speaking in an interview with MGU, he added that in the case of cable operators it controls everything 100% through the use of their own or partners’ monitoring systems, with the monitory carried out weekly. “If the cable operator has turned on our signal illegally, we will find out about it within a week and apply sanctions”.
Remezovsky also said that in the case of piracy in general, it is really a rather painful topic, especially for its TV channels Futbol 1 and Futbol 2.
The company’s DTH platform Xtra TV recently changed to a non-card system employing Verimatrix encoding and this action will undoubtedly bring results.
