Police Bust Illegal Pay-tv Streaming Service

30 posts in this topic

Of course they don't rent more space anyone with half a clue knows that, but there's money involved of that there can be no doubt. Foxtel doesn't get access to Irdeto crypto systems for free. How much? No idea, but $100,000 buys quite a few receivers...

That would be quite correct if they owned the receivers, they don't there leased from the manufacturer.

But as you said ''everyone know's that"

There are quite a few Internet provider systems available, which are legal, offering quite a lot of English content,

providing you have a fast enough system and enough download

No comments?

Quote from posted article,

"Police have raided the Sydney arm of an alleged global piracy outfit which they say was selling unlicensed pay TV subscription packages offering more than 1000 channels for $50 a month.

Police allege an Ashfield shop, trading as QMC Mart, is part of a global piracy operation which private investigators say is worth $70 million a year with 150,000 customers."

Not sure what there is to say. As with the other bust it all seems written to try big note a pretty minor event - Might as well have been the Australian arm of the local swap meet global network of fake asian DVDs.

Your quite correct Pater, Most of these things are over-blown hype, at the end of the day.

The guy's probably selling of a free service like this http://www.myeasytv.com/.

and there are quite a few others just Google "TV via Internet" The down side is, you will need

a fast connection and bags of download

I thought $70 mil. a year with 150 000 customers seemed substantial...

So did I until I realised that that was the world wide membership. All the police have managed to bust is a couple of local grifters who probably have a few 100 'customers'.

Foxy are still using a paralleled NDS Irdeto 2 service. The digital campaign ploy was only an attempt at

highlighting there service and increasing the fees. The pay satellite service have always been digital since day one.

I'd be surprised if Foxtel still has irdeto ECMs etc floating around of its own generation. Its been some time since I've paid any attention but I can't see any reason why Foxtel would keep simulcrypting with irdeto (ie, paying for it) given how long its been since Foxtel took up with NDS. Of course, irdeto is still there, for Austar. If davmel ever makes an appearance I'm sure things will be clarified. That or I'll dig out ye-olde style DVB-s card and have a look. wink.gif

My friends cable dreambox only stopped a couple of months ago and it was irdeto. I would say these ecms were there until then.
