It's true, or it was a few years ago, S*y got fed up of pubs getting a home set up and running a feed to the pub, so some time ago they put a small pint glass symbol on the bottom corner of the screen.
Now if a S*y representative pops into a pub he can tell instantly if it's a commercial set up.
The prices they charge pubs, and clubs, is extortion, but most pay it, a few went for ART set ups, but now ART have lost the rights I suppose they'll either have to invest in bigger dishes or go for DigitAlb.

Won't get into that here, as there are legal proceedings under way and it has been discussed/argued on many previous occasions, so we need to wait and see some results.

Will dig out the thread links and add them to this post.

Some biig clubs can be up to UK£ 20K according to the ratesheet!
The best rumour from the Northwest is that the Nove package, much more expensive, is more legal than Digialb, as its from an EU country.
