NOVA

NOVA Greece is a Greek digital satellite pay TV platform owned by Multichoice Hellas. It was launched in December 1999 and is the first and (currently) only pay TV satellite service in Greece with CONNX-TV.

NOVA offers Greek subscribers an array of international and domestic programmes (including news, sports, movies, music, children's programmes and general entertainment channels) plus the majority of popular Greek terrestrial TV channels along with a number of Greek terrestrial radio stations. International programmes are offered in their original soundtrack, with Greek subtitles. Some interactive services like games, cinema & theatre listings, lottery numbers, news headlines and weather reports are also provided.

On April 14, 2008, Greek telecommunications company Forthnet acquired Netmed, parent firm of NOVA Greece. In 2008 Nova Greece had 350,000 subscribers.The transaction is valued at 430 million euros. In 2010 Nova Greece had 380,000 subscribers.

Technical Information

Nova broadcasts in standard definition using the DVB-S MPEG-2 format and (since September 2010) in High Definition using the DVB-S MPEG-4 format through Hotbird 8 satellite at 13°E.[3] The service is encrypted with Irdeto conditional access system. Until recently the subscribers had the option of buying a specific set-top box, or using any DVB-S Irdeto enabled set-top box, but since September 2009 new subscribers are only allowed to use the company's own set-top box. This change of policy has raised some significant controversy.

Nova channels are also available through the IPTV service of On Telecoms. On Telecoms subscribers can sign up to watch all the channels offered by Nova but have to pay a separate fee for that service.

Criticism

It is said by most television enthusiasts in Greece that the sum of Nova's characteristics show that total customer satisfaction is not by any means comparable to that of subscribers of other European satellite providers, like SKY Italia, Sky UK or Sky Deutschland.

Degradation to the picture quality due to extensive use of heavy MPEG compression (a technique that offers more available programs at the price of lower total image quality per channel added) also effects terrestrial repeaters and that practice seriously degrades picture of all commercial national television stations nationwide, since they are fed by Nova.
