If your referring to UK subscription satellite channels i.e sky then you cant get these channels for free simply by using a sky f5 receiver.
The only way to recieve these channels would be by illegally cardsharing.
You can find plenty of people selling these boxes on ebay and gumtree already set up to recieve these channels with 3 or more months free access to there CS servers.
There are free servers out there but they are far and few between and are generally unreliable, also keep in mind that you would need to have an internet connection in order to view these channels.
Dont think we need to worry about sly's business model @ around 50-70 a month plus they have started with their internet based tv also, wht should be worrying is android in space. It doesnt even work in my living room.You do wonder how long sky can continue with there business model, throwing satellites into space is not getting any cheaper and is out of date, most will need to be replace over the coming years. Bt have the best idea tv over fiber same has virgin
how do you program them?? and do you then have to find a cs place???I've had a skybox f3 for about 9 months and a Linux based nbox5800 which both work a treat with a card sharing server connected to Internet all channels visible inc movies, sport, some ppv, xxx, etc for about £5 a month, you're right rumours are rife it's gonna stop but who knows. Bought my f3 of flea bay for about £40 programmed myself simples
If you're talking about f3 best head to thedogsbollox website which has all the files and tuts you need and they've got helpful forums like these basically flash firmware from usb stick and add channel list from usb also then you're good to go. I presume you're just talking about 28.2 s## channels.how do you program them?? and do you then have to find a cs place???
The clamp down has been talked about for years and while they may do this I don't see this happening any time soon, For this to work they have to replace every box and card and while that sound easy it's not. First problem they have is getting SD box costomers to move to HD and there are a lot who ain't intrested because of the cost. Second problem is replacing over 9M boxes and cards over night as once they start releasing the new stuff this will give the blaggers less time to crack the system, the longer it takes the easier the new system will be cracked.As already mentioned skybox f3's/f5's and (many others) can be used to obtain all premium sky channels for very little cost (not free) through the use of card sharing. A subscription to a card sharing server and internet connection is required. Many people sell these pre-configured with a ccline (basically a login to card sharing server) already installed in them so you can just plug them in and get every channel without having to configure. These are what are usually on sale on ebay and Gumtree etc. They are normally advertised as skybox with 12 month "gift" or similar wording. This just means the length of time the "subscription" will work for until it needs renewed.
Sky are currently cracking down on card sharing and people are saying these boxes will stop working shortly. So if you buy one and card sharing stops then you will only receive free to air channels on it.
Hopefully this will clear this up a bit.
