Yes, seen them Robs but nothing to write home about for me. I don't think too many hobbyists will be paying for that stuff.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Unlikey

Before the ITV Digital fiasco, they were rolling out Seca2 cards, so the chances are its probably this one

Probably will be CH. Of course Seca1 was well hacked in ITV digital boxes last time round. Personally I'll be surprised if it gets off the ground, if what I've read is true. The new encrypted channels will have to be broadcast via DTT multiplexes 1 and A, as the BBC and Freeview multiplexes are licensed for FTA only. The capacity on 1 and A is such that there's room for only 4 channels so any increase will degrade the signal.
Added to that I don't think current Freeview adapters can be used for pay-TV.

I have the feeling that this will be a damp squib, it won't have a great take up, but will probably slow down the sale of freeview boxes for a period of time, I can see why the BBC have got the hump.

PS. It'll have to be in the later encryption, I can't see them being stupid enough to release in the old one.

If ppl are going to hack a second gen. I can't think of one reason why they'd want the stuff being touted on the Freeview boxes. :rolleyes:

I would like them, can they really use new encryption on an old box?
Has anyone had a look what the encryption actually is used?
Also perhaps this is just a trial, maybe there will be more channels later should it be a success.
