They vary in price quite considerably Phil, haven't really shopped around as I tend to be boring ans stick to one supplier. Have you checked out the advertisers at the top of the forum, not sure what their prices are like, but best get one quick, I can see supplies being tight.
I will never cease to be amazed at the jubilation that surrounds people's discovery that an encryption system can be accessed using products that use allegedly illicit software, and their irritation when a broadcaster does something aout it. Is this a game, or something? Do you all honestly believe that broadcasters and encryption companies aren't doing their level best to stop such mischief in its tracks.
Why buy a Dragon CAM (or anything else of that ilk anyway), when the legitimate Seca CAM works fine (with an official card).
Canal Digitaal has already blocked the use of such hardware, the french and poles won't be far behind.
Only a few days ago a customer came in with a failed Ultra Blue card and what looked like a standard Irdeto 2 CAM. But it had been flashed by the retailer and the customer wasn't even told. So the UB card had failed.
I believe that ANY reference to any product of this type on this or any other website visible or any publication distributed in the EU constitutes a breach of the Conditional Access Directive and the Sale and Supply to Consumers Directive.
And the sooner the users of this forum (and the rest of the world too) realises that every time they access a service without paying for it they are stealing ordinary peoples' jobs from them, the better.
IT'S THEFT - YOU CALL IT FUN - I CALL IT THEFT - AND THAT'S A CRIME.
Making you pay for tv you don't want - now thats theft.
If I could watch Thor (Live footy on SAT AFTERNOON)legally without having to piss around, do you think I would bother to get pirate card. Sorry, but I dont want to pay £40.00 a month to watch Southampton v Charlton, It aint gonna happen. Seca 2. whoops. Top up TV whoopsie dayzee. It is very convenient that just as a competitor to Rupert pops up, then it gets hacked. Just like On Digital. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm very interesting
Bradley is correct. Piracy is a crime. So why do so many of us spread throughout Europe need to resort to unofficial cards and keys?
Because the broadcasters operate either a monopoly type situation or a form of cartel. In the UK I cannot buy a French subscription channel card or Dutch or German. Why not? I thought the EU was a "common market". Yes if its Yoghourt or Telephones but not TV transmissions.
I have applied for an official card from France and the Netherlands and was refused. No explanation was offered. If I was to use an unofficial card who is to blame?
I am a Sky subscribr who likes to watch football. In order to do this I am forced to buy the complete package at the top of the range price. Why? I only want Sports coverage.
When the broadcasting moguls face true competition we won't have to resort to unofficial channels.
BTW, there are no job losses in the UK if I were to buy an unofficial French or Dutch or German card.
