    Default DTT hacking set for a come back ?

    Pay TV proposal for Freeview

    Pay TV channels could soon be available for Freeview under plans to launch a new subscription service, Broadcast reports this week.

    Called 'Top-Up TV', the premium package is the brainchild of former Sky executives David Chance and Ian West. The pair were one of the applicants who tendered a bid to run the DTT service after the demise of ITV Digital in 2002 but lost out to the joint BBC/Sky/Crown Castle consortium, Freeview.

    Around ten channels would initially be in the lineup for the package, including the likes of E4, Sky One, TCM, Cartoon Network, UK Gold and Discovery. Top-Up TV would initially be aimed at the 1.25 million households with old ITV digital boxes and integrated digital TVs.

    Subscribers would have to pay around 8 to 10 per month for the premium addon, which could launch as early as April.

    The announcement is likely to anger the BBC, who have been largely successful in educating viewers about their new 'free' digital service; the launch of Top-Up TV on the platform could add to viewer confusion and slow down growth of the product.

    Be interesting to see if it does launch which encryption they will be using

    Just a quick question.... All the free-2-view boxes do they have telephone inputs/outputs on the back of them.... Is it possible to run the security system down the phone line rather than with a gold card. For example the boxes contact the company every night for the next days viewing.... different codes for different areas according to the region that you live in.

    Think your getting ahead of yourself here squire! Wait till the stations hit the air waves, then we will know what were up against!

    It's not restricted to the old encryption (by the sounds of it). It would be madness to use any other encryption though, chopping out a large user base.

    (this logitech keyboard is damned nice, needs some getting used to though - at least it doesn't have mayonnaise stuck between the keys )
