Set-Top Boxes Set to Become Cheaper With Indigenous Solution

Set-top boxes (STBs) are likely to become cheaper as an
indigenously-developed solution for conditional access system (CAS) will
be made available to domestic manufacturers at less than half the
current prices.

Domestic CAS licences will be provided for around
Rs. 32 or $0.5, compared to the current market cost of $2-3 (roughly Rs. 132 – Rs. 200) per licence.
The average cost of one STB is in the range of Rs. 800 to Rs. 1,200.
