Rise and Fall of the $2 IPTV services

If you were one of the cheapskates paying for the $2 monthly special to watch hundreds of premium IPTV channels and thought you had outsmarted the cable cartels and finally kicked them to the curb, you may be in for a surprise. :eek: No, this was not some miracle breakthrough in technology that promised salvation from sky rocketing pay TV subscriptions. Unfortunately.

Rather, I am told, you were just watching some seriously over compressed programming from a few Dishnetwork :retarded :retarded :retarded and Sky Satellite pay subscriptions that were being streamed worldwide due to an exploit in their security that allowed key sharing. Needless to say, the cable industry was not very happy about all this and has pressured the satellite operators to end this mass copyright infringement which they are doing. Now that the satellite operators can identify the smart cards / decoders being used as the source for this IPTV programming, I highly doubt such piracy will be possible anymore and it will be back to Kodi and streaming Pluto TV for most. :surrender

Legal pay TV services generally start at $40 per month. If you can't afford that, you might want to look into C-Band Satellite TV using a big dish. Watching TV with a C-Band dish is 100% legal, delivers the best picture quality possible and gives you access to thousands of channels and wild feeds, many of which are transmitted FTA. :bigsmile

UPDATE: Non-legal IPTV services are being shutdown worldwide. The pay-tv subscriptions feeding these services can now be quickly identified and turned off by the content providers thanks to new watermarking technology. Use at your own risk, but expect to be disappointed.

Bert Eichhorn finally got some work done. :biggrin

Dedicated and cloud servers are booked solid around the world. I wonder if these dime a dozen streaming services have anything to do with it? :rotflmao:

Nagra tooting their horn
Killing piracy at the source with forensic watermarking

One the primary layers of the content protection ecosystem includes the ability to trace the source of a leak that leads to the capture and redistribution of the content. Forensic watermarking enables content owners and pay TV operators to embed a unique serial number in the content as it is playing, or at any point within the content value chain. By detecting these marks it is possible to identify which legitimate clients the stream is leaking from, and then to stop the distribution through that point.

These services are shutting down.

Some satellite operators got caught with their pants down which allowed these pirate IPTV services to thrive for a while. But now they can detect the leaking subscriptions and shut them off. If your particular IPTV service has not yet been shut down, it will be in the weeks ahead. Guaranteed. Then your dealer will have to purchase hundreds of new subscribed decoders to continue the scam, but those will get shut down a few weeks later. This scam is no longer profitable and pirate iptv dealers will run away like the one above. The party is over. :frown

Save your money and buy a C-band satellite dish instead. Your eye sight will improve too.
