I KEEP A RECORD CARD (an index card for American readers) in the hallway table that I will use when canvassed by local politicians during the upcoming general election campaign. First question, "Will your party force RTE (the national broadcaster) to disseminate its content over free-to-air satellite? This is an important way for Irish broadcasting to reach the millions of Irish citizens who use their Sky dish to access content.
As Brian Greene asks, "So which bit or byte of the NDS encryption system that encrypts RTE signal into Ireland is FTA (free to air)? No bits, it's RTE failing its own tests, again."
Like Brian, I think this is an election issue. If you agree, when someone seeking electoral support calls to your door, ask them, “"Will your party give a commitment to force RTE to transmit FTA on satellite into Ireland?”
