Solo, I.media , KSC moves digital to Free to Air

Karachi Cable operators have moved Digital Cable from Subscription to Free to Air .
130+ channels included most common Pakistani , Indian and few Arabic channels .
So guys check your boxes again .

What does this mean?

Latest news is

KCS was using singals from solo digital network which they are not using any more and they have upgraded there headend and its FTA now and will be encrypted soon within a month or 2 so enjoy FTA channels for a month or 2

so it means no need for zabardast box? because from last 2 days they are showing all zee channels star plus and other channels on my local cable.

u can use zabardast box also and any other box to view it

I think they are planning for moving peoples to Digital FTA. Because peoples will not pay any additional monthly subscription charges .

After getting the target ratio they will apply encryption on channels .

Rite @ multichoice???

but that will be costly right? so whats the diff between now local and zabardast box?

can u share channel list

it have Pakistani Channels + Indian Channels + International Channels ( D.w , CNN , BBC , Fashion TV, HBO Poland , HBO II Poland , HBO Comedy Poland , Film Box ) & some arabian entertainment channels

what ? but they are not on my local cable in Karachi ?

Dear Bro !!! Do you have a Digital Cable box?? bcoz above channels can't be watch without this box ...

free to air services is for few days will be upgarded soon .. this is the last year for analog setup .. next year all cable provider will use digital setup. solo partners break up and digi cable has started today on head-end and will start on digital system beacause they were facing re-new card system

yar they have totally blocked indian channels on analog channel , wat about digital setups ? what is the guarantee that they will not block indian channels on digital box tooo later

Hi Alexa,

Any idea if imedia digital will include more OSN channels such as OSN comedy, First, etc? Or will this remain mostly FTA channels on digital renewal system? Right now they have just two OSN channels. Are they going to increase total channels and if so what will be the new limit? Right now it's 139 with at least 10-12 inhouse imedia channels (which are crappy and not worth watching). Thanks.

Hey ! Omer not to be worry about OSN channels . Should be wait for 1 or 2 month for start new headin Digital setup .

@ waqar .

Pempra allowed cable operators to show Indian channels only for Digital setup , bcoz Goverment want to introduce new Digital system & banned analog setup as soon as possible . This policy will help to generate more income for Goverment . :)

Right now they have comedy central which they've added again today but it's dubbed in Polish. Now we'll have to get Polish language classes to watch.

May be they are helping us in case if we get a polish visa in future :-)

:wub::wub::wub::wub::wub:

From yesterday all polish channels are off ... Any reason???

its ON again some issue with the card of cyfra

Guys, SDN's boxes are still going to get locked (no auth mode) because of the conditional access encryption system that's encoded into the boxes. How do we get our cards renewed now? Channels are FTA but the boxes are still encrypted and the previous conditional access timers are still working as per your last renewal so the box will get locked down when your subscription runs out. Also if you remove the card from the box, you'll get the "please insert smart card" error so this means even FTA channels won't run on the box without the subscription card.

So the question is again, who's going to renew the card now that Imdeia has hijacked the boxes?

Thanks
