The DigiCard from upc cablecom is a small plug-in card with an integrated smartcard that is used to receive digital television via the latest generation of cable connections. An additional receiver (set-top box) is therefore no longer needed to view digital television in your living room. The only requirement is a CI+ compatible television (more information is available under television sets). Simply insert the DigiCard and start enjoying digital television – without the need for any additional devices, cables or remote controls.
CI+ is an enhancement of the Common Interface (CI) standard. CI relates to a device interface that is used for the receipt of digital television.
