If with any trick or method any local cable operator distributed a number of paid channels illegibly, it will result greatly on revenue of the broadcasters and related parties. In this paper, we describe a simple method for digitally detecting and mapping a number-strip flashing on screen in a video with that of another number-strip. Our work focuses on the illumination aspect of detection and replacement a part of video, that provide to modify a video and that further allows to redistribute of paid channels freely.
