Random numbers on sports channels

Does anyone have any idea what the ten digit number that keeps showing up on the top of the screen on my sports channels is? It's the same number every time and it's there for about a minute every time we turn to either a BT or Sky sports channel showing football.

Re: Random numbers on sports channels

It's an anti-piracy measure, the number is linked to your subscription so Sky/BT can identify you if you were streaming sports illegally.
