You can watch this channel with a receiver with a common interface slot which is compatible with the Free-X CAM (also known as Joker CAM). The other alternative is to buy a receiver from At-Sky which has the necessary decryption system built-in. I seem to remember reading somewhere that some Force receivers didn't work well with the joker CAM. Try the www.jokercam.nl site or its forum to see if this applies to the receiver you want to buy.

Hi m8
I have a Force 1122S receiver.It works fairly well with a Magic Cam....the only problem is it wont decode a lot of channels on 30west (Nagravision) due to a bug in the Force software.
I am 99% sure that the Force does not work with Joker cam or matrix cam etc.
Also as this model is now discontinued it is not being supported by Force....so no new software updates for it.
On the plus side it is very flexible as it has twin card readers that can be used as Viacess or Conax or one of each.It also has 2 cam slots for magic cam or any other compatible cam.
You can also use a silver card in the conax slot to get 6in1 capabilities using the BB aio files found on satdudez.

I would also take a look at the Technomate receivers which are supposed to be very good.

P.S Ive heard a few bad things about Myers Satellite...i.e Customer service is crap.I always get my gear from Astratech who are the tops m8.

The Technomate receiver certainly has a following, but may also be worth looking at the Echostar receivers, the ones with Echonav software so that they treat an Irdeto cam as an allcam.

I've personally had no dealings with either Myers or Astratech, but the latter do seem to receive good reports. There are many good E-talers around, Ive bought a few bits and pieces from Satarmy im Germany and you can sometimes buy far cheaper outside the UK.

I bought a technomate from Wizard Satellite and both pre and
post sales service are as good as I have had anywhere. Worth
a phone call at least.

When the CAM was a bit iffy they sorted it no quibble by return.
