kiwitrc: Why would they care, you still have pay for the Sky service?
It is due to card sharing where they loose out on multiroom revenue, and also you not paying $600/$650 (or monthly) for a PVR.
Don't you need the blue card and also to be paying for mysky to get the hd ticket? So sy still get all the revenue and no wear on their mysky unit you have sitting in a box?
MySky will work on 1 TV with 1 subscription card. Card sharing will work on many TVs with 1 subscription card. Card sharing does not mean take the card out and use it in another STB, it means having multiple STBs access 1 card shared between STBs on a network. The practice is frowned upon here as it is technically stealing a service you are not paying for, and discussions are likely to get locked/deleted. Don't bother discussing it further, I just wanted to clarify what it is (and I do not do it).
