I will be glad to assist you with this.
The Common Interface (CI) is the slot 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.
It is not needed, however it may be possible to 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: so its probably something that you will never use.
