The invention of television changed the world and made information spread faster. For the past few years, broadcast television has remained digital only and IP networks have emerged as an additional broadcast option. Regardless of the infrastructure used by a given broadcaster, some channels or even special content require a specific payment scheme and implement conditional access.

The proposed methods cover both aspects – the content itself and the protection of subscribers’ personal data when using live streaming services.
