During the first four months Italy's free-to-air satellite platform TivùSat has managed to double its own growth objectives. To date it has sold 570,000 smart-cards to manufacturers of decoders and TV sets, almost double the objective of 300,000 cards.

This result comes at a time when three new TivùSat-certified decoders are to be launched. The positive trend is also confirmed by the acceleration of activations, which now stands at about 1500 per day.

TivùSat is owned by RAI, Mediaset and Telecom Italy Media, but is open to all other broadcasters.
