Definition[edit | edit source]

Free-to-view broadcasting is

broadcasting of services that may require a one-time activation fee, but without subsequent costs for viewers. Usually this takes the form of an encrypted broadcast that needs an access card in order to be decrypted and viewed. 'Free-to-view' services allow broadcasters to abide by copyright licensing agreements that restrict free access to a subset of their total broadcast area, such as an individual Member State.[1]
