Terms & Conditions
B4U Movies and B4U Music will be shifted to Asia Sat 3S Satellite from present satellite PAS-10.

The shift will take place on 7 December. The transmission of PAS-10 will be stopped from 31 December. The network has upgraded compression system whereby it will use MPEG-4 compression for both the channels which adds improved coding efficiency, ability to encode mixed media data (video, audio, and speech), error resilience to enable robust transmission and ability to interact with the audio-visual scene generated at the receiver.

It will use IRDETO encryption for both the channels, which provides solutions for digital content protection in Digital TV, IPTV and Mobile environment.

B4U Music will continue to be a free to air channel but will be available in an encrypted mode henceforth. New Set Top Boxes are required for both the channels by the operators.
