...packaged as standard, but only if a CI+ module is onboard. Some of the chipsets (like the ALI m3606 on the fergusons/amikos etc) would have to have included a CI+ module rather than a CI one for the software to be included in the stb. AFAIK they have only installed CI slots.

The NXP8735 Combo STBs (OEM is Sowell) will start appearing and they come with CI+ modules as standard.

CI+ is mainly about keeping sky happy though....

What Gerry has posted does seem to be fairly clear in my view given what hasn't been said in the past. Its just a pity they are referring to it using the word Analogue.
That would appear to say that the "Analogue" will evolve into "Digital" for teletext services ..... which to me means that the EBU text we currently receive will be dropped in time, but maybe not immediately on ASO.
