NDS said in a statement: “As part of the fight against pay-TV piracy, all companies in the conditional access industry and many law enforcement agencies come to possess codes that could enable hackers to access services for free. It is wrong to claim that NDS has ever been in the possession of any codes for the purpose of promoting hacking or piracy.”News Corp said: “NDS has consistently denied any wrongdoing to BBC programme Panorama and we fully accept their assurances.”Regulator Ofcom is already investigating both Murdoch and News Corp in the light of new evidence emerging from probes into phone and computer hacking and bribery at the News of the World tabloid, which News Corp shut down last July.”These allegations, if true, are the most serious yet and I am referring the matter to Ofcom, who have a duty to investigate as part of their fit and proper test,” member of parliament Tom Watson said of the claims made in the BBCs Panorama programme.”If what Panorama says is true it suggests a global conspiracy to undermine a great British company, ITV Digital,” he told Reuters on Tuesday.
