Swedish Public television, SVT has given Norwegian Telenor a ultimatum 
-To scrambel the SVT transmissions.
The background is that Telenor for some months have been distributing 
SVT 1 and 2 digital on Intelsat 707 unencrypted. SVT now gives Telenor 
3 weeks to encrypt the two channels. Otherwise SVT will sue Telenor 
for "breach of an agreement".
