Sky Italia to launch Digital Key for DTT

DTH operator Sky Italia has announced that it will launch a novel Digital Key in December. The USB key when connected to a Sky HD or a My Sky HD satellite box will enable viewers to watch Digital Terrestrial channels on the DTT platform.
Sky Italia say that the key will remove the current need for multiple decoders that are/will be necessary when the analogue terrestrial transmissions change to digital by 2012. The Digital Key will integrate the programming of the DTT channels in Sky’s EPG, allowing viewers to zap across the entire digital TV offer without changing the remote.
