As I understand it - most Internet access using satellites - dishes are used only for reception (you can get two way communication but that is very expensive).

You still need to have a telephone connection to the ISP to request the site/file/service from the Internet this is then sent via the satellite to your receiver/PC.

If you could see the stream from satellites it would be like listening into some else's telephone conversation and would mean little to you.

I may be wrong but that's how I understand it....

I think you have it spot on there GB, apart from using stream grabbing software and capturing other people's downloads, there is nothing useful unless you pay for it.

ohh you cheeky monkey...everyone wants something for free these days...

Well, there is something called streamreader which can be used with a skystar2 to grab files from a satellite. As Gameboy says you are just tuning into what other people have requested via their ISP link, it could still be amusing though...

But please don't get to excited, all the posts I saw on here last year were rather negative about what could be obtained.

Yep - mostly cheap rubbish mature content and various virus/trojan combinations. By all means have a go, but have some industrial strength antivirus and spyware removal at your fingertips.
