CHESEAUX, Switzerland -- Nagravision, a Kudelski Group company (SWX:KUD) and the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and value-added service technology, and CANAL+ Group, leader in the programming and distribution of pay TV offerings in France, are further expanding their partnership in securing content protection and revenues for pay TV services. CANAL+ Group is adopting the newest version of Nagravision's conditional access system (CAS) and is in the process of replacing all smart cards for more than 3 million subscribers. With this new system, CANAL+ Group demonstrates one more time to its partners its strong commitment to protect the contents, the channels and the quality programs, which often are exclusive, that the Group wants to continue offering to its clients.

"We are proactively securing our system by upgrading to Nagravision's latest security solution," said Jo Guegan, Deputy Chief Technical and Information Officer, CANAL+ Group. "Even though the current security level fully satisfies us, we want to implement all updates and new releases our partner is proposing to us. We look forward to continue working with a company such as Nagravision that offers optimal protection for our contents, representing a guarantee of reliability towards the rights owners who trust us, and which allows us to continue offering the best programs to our subscribers."
