Definitions Edit

Conditional access refers to encrypting digital television services (e.g. premium channels) to limit access only to authorized users.

Conditional access means "any technical measure and/or arrangement whereby access to the protected service — such as Pay-TV — is made conditional upon prior individual authorization."[1]
