MYtv selects NDS for hybrid service

MYtv has chosen professional services and an end-to-end solution from NDS for its hybrid satellite direct-to-home (DTH) pay-TV platform. MYtv is planning to launch its pay-TV service in late 2009.

With NDS MediaHighway STB software, MYtv will have the ability to introduce advanced features such as pay-per-view and interactive services. NDS is also managing the systems integration including the deployment of NDS VideoGuard conditional access, an NDS EPG and XTV DVR technology.

At launch, MYtv will offer a high definition DVB-S2 XTV DVR, as well as a HD/SD zapper STB to receive both MYtv packages and satellite FTA channels. Subscribers can watch SD and HD channels broadcast by satellite (DVB-S2) as well as using DVR technology to record and playback programmes.
