The main object of the pilot is to test the individual elements of the service as well as customers preferences and behaviour prior to the services commercial launch. The signal will be broadcast from Strahov transmitter and received mainly on Motorola phones. Altogether ten programmes will be transmitted, six of which will be free to air and the remaining four are encrypted. To view the encrypted programmes a special T-mobile SIM card will be needed which will allow users access to the programme services, which they have pre-ordered.
