What is digital encryption?
Digital encryption is a technology used to protect television programming content from unauthorized viewing. Think of it as "scrambling" the TV signal so that only customers that are authorized to receive a channel can view it. To receive digitally encrypted signals, customers need a digital device available through their service provider, such as a Mini Box, Digital cable set top box, or CableCard™. All pay TV providers, cable, satellite and telco, are contractually required by programmers to protect the content they distribute from unauthorized reception.
