SFR, a division of the Altice Group and one of France’s largest pay-TV operators, and content protection and multiscreen television solutions specialist NAGRA are working together on the launch of the operator’s new 4K offer under the brand ‘La Box Fibre Zive de SFR’, marking the country’s most advanced Ultra-HD offering.
