    BBC News - Pirated Sky TV sold for £10 a month

    I am surprised as I always understood Sky's encryption approach to be pretty much unhackable.

    I expect as a consequence we are going to see much more frequent encryption and subscriber card updates to counter this, so that the hacked box has a shorter life.

    It's not hacked, just shared around a bit... been going on for years and cannot be discussed on this forum.

    Hmm... I know how but don't think it should be said.
    Mods tell me if it's acceptable first.

    If people want to discuss this they can go elsewhere.
