New thrust to drop basic encryption on German cable

Jrn Krieger RapidTVNews | 16-12-2011

The media authority of German federal state Lower Saxony, NLM, has asked Kabel Deutschland to lift the basic encryption of digital free-to-air TV channels on its cable network.
"Basic encryption on digital cable has so far prevented cable customers from being able to receive commercial free-TV channels using modern TV sets easily and without additional costs," NLM director Andreas Fischer said in Hanover. "Kabel Deutschland should finally give up its wrong track of basic encryption. In particular small broadcasters without analogue cable carriage are dependent on unencrypted digital distribution."
The thrust's background is the decision by Germany's cartel office to approve the take-over of Kabel BW by Liberty Global. To gain the green light, the US media company agreed on far-reaching concessions including the removal of basic encryption on digital free-to-air channels.
