Multicanal to upgrade encryption system

The Spanish Multicanal platform will shortly upgrade its encryption system from Nagravision 1 to version 3, according to local reports. The move is designed to put an end to piracy “once and for all”.

The Multicanal bouquet is broadcast on Hisapsat and its conditional access system has been compromised for some time, provoking protests from cable operators taking the channels, which include Hollywood, Odyssey and History.
