Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) Wholesale and the NCTC announced the renewal of a multi-year agreement for the HITS National Authorization Service (NAS). NAS is intended to compliment other services from HITS by providing NCTC members with centrally managed solutions for offering digital video and IP services, including HD channels, VOD and broadband Internet access.

The NAS conditional access platform is designed to provide an alternative to purchasing and operating the headend management systems required for managing permissions, set-top boxes, and interactive programming guides (IPGs). The centralized services also support pay per view (PPV), VOD and EAS.
