Pay TV operator TelkomVision is targeting to double its subscribers in 2011 by cooperating with Irdeto, a global software security and media technology company.
“TelkomVision will use Irdeto’s Conditional Access System [CAS] in order to increase its subscribers from around 200,000 currently to 500,000 by the end of this year,” TelkomVision president director Elvizar KH said Tuesday during a press conference.
Elvizar said the targeted number of new subscribers was for both cable service TelkomVision and satellite service Yes TV.
Irdeto CEO Graham Kill said that the company, headquartered in Amsterdam and Beijing, would provide 500,000 smart cards to TelkomVision this year to support TelkomVision’s TV broadcasting.
He further said that Irdeto saw a great opportunity in the Indonesian market due to Indonesia’s increased income per capita.
