From Wikipedia:
"The Common Interface (CI) is the slot on a digital television receiver into which a conditional access module (CAM) may be inserted for satellite television. Receivers normally have two common interfaces. A receiver with a common interface allows the user to access encrypted television broadcasts as opposed to free-to-air (FTA) channels."


You can use your Common Interface (CI) in combination with Conditional Access Module (CAM) and get some extra channels on top of the existing free-to-view Freeview channels:
