I think if I buy the equipment and install it that I should be able to pick up any signal that is in my airspace. After all people sell mineral rights to what is under the ground thousands of feet deep why don't we own the airspace over our property that belongs to us. The big satellite companies that have become rich off of the public will just have to keep comeing up with ways to block the fta recievers but on the other hand the other guys will again figure out how to hack their system. Thus this will never end and will be a ongoing cycle.

I have been a 'loyal' customer of Dishnetwork for several years and have recently decided to change to cable because it is now a lot cheaper. What i want to know is what happened to 'better tver for all'? What happened to cheaper than the competition? What happened to Charlie not being a greedy corporate cretian? If it wasn't for him driving up prices of his crappy programing, peoplee wouldn't need to steal it. He needs to bring the price back down instead of griping about pirates.

When DIK and Bev launch the new cards in 5-8 months we will be down for a while. They have this in Europe and they havent broke the code yet. But I suggest getting a NFUSION since it is server run it shouldn't or wont be down long.

i think i should be allowed to break in and steal anything i want from your homes and cars just because i have the equipment to do so and because you have lots of money and you are greedy and you can write your loss off on your taxes.

I think that Satellite signals are very expensive and more than that, they send a lot of advertisment, so you are paying for receive advertisement
