January 20 at 10:00, the satellite signal of the TV channel Kvartal TV will be encoded. This is stated in the official letter of the Network Development and Broadcasting Support Department of the 1+1 Media Group, sent to the service providers (a copy of this letter is available to the Mediasat).
The encoding will be ensured by the conditional access system Verimatrix. For decoding, there will be applied Verimatrix CAM Module, which is compatible with domestic and professional satellite receivers with CI/CI+ interfaces.
“For the time being, the engineering experts have detected one model of satellite receivers, which does not work with Verimatrix CAM Module, and this receiver is Scopus 2600”, as the statement remarks.
Providers that signed an agreement to broadcast Kvartal TV are granted with a decoding device like CAM Module under the Transfer and Acceptance Act to the License Agreement.

It will run until 20 January”, as added by the experts of the Network Development and Broadcasting Support Department of the 1+1 Media Group.
