Icas will be helpful when most TV manufacturer will implement CAS slot in TV, thus we can reduce E-waste.i too heard of icas system being implimented here ? what for..?
if the system runs free it should be free to air....and available in fta boxes ..
if separate boxes to be purchased for dd free dish ... how many million boxes to be discarded in india used by poor households
although there are mpeg hd above box etc..many people still uses mpeg2 box & buys mpeg 2 box due to its low cost....
secondly TV manfucaturer will be almost compulsory to have DDFD cas activated so count number of users.
market is moving from mpeg2 box, and soon we will find , may be after 3 years, all mpeg4 boxes only.
