HD+ Scraps Need for CI+

SES subsidiary HD+, in partnership with Technisat, has unveiled its first UltraHD TV with an integrated HD+ decryption system. The TV, shown at the IFA Innovations Media Briefing in Germany, does not require a CI+ module to show HD+ content.

Consumers who own the TV (‘TechniMedia UHD+’) will have access to 50 channels via the HD+ platform, as well as the demo channel (SES to Carry First FTA UltraHD Channel).

The TV will be launched in Q4’15, in 43″, 49″ and 55″ sizes.
