So, when this change going to happen?
I also hope, They will change this after 2 years, It is long time. Lot of things can happen
Then They will dual crypt both systems ...... and NDS and test the NDS systems and optons avaliable for the new systems .
OLD customers will remain on ...... while the big 3 million exchange takes place
( about 2 year )
All in this time of happen THEY WILL PRAY THAT NDS is NOT breeched
Seem to me like a waisted goal and money
There are already ways around NDS
Would have been more wise to stick with ...... new stronger system
Without doubt NDS is one of the most secure encryptions, at the present time,
possibly only PowerVu is superior. And yes it will mean that IF you want to view the programming, you will need to obtain a subscription.
Many pay services are realizing that cheap encryption systems are simply not worth the money there paying and are switching to an NDS system.
As to the question of receiver capability for receiving the new service, a "Over
Air" software update is quite possible and will be implemented, You will probably find that they will run a parallel service of both encryptions until the change over is completed. Should the receivers need to be changed, the cost will be minimal, as in most cases the receivers are not owned by the pay provider, but leased from the manufacturer.
As to the quote above regarding encryption security,
While this is possibly correct, the practicality of such an action, is simply not worth the trouble, And to date NDS remains secure and beyond the scope ofthere are already ways around nds
hacking , unlike some other encryptions. And while there will always be people who will argue the point. Systems the like of BskyB, Sky NZ, and Foxtel
In short if you want to continue to receive the service, start paying, The party's over Folks.

I happily watch Foxtel and Sky UK here in Taiwan but I use genuine subs and provider stb's.
Sometimes though a non provider STB works better as long as you dont need the interactive services.
2 nice posts by basssett and irdeto2engineer
so from that we can all understand clear that NDS is hacked and not secure ?
As we all know the real reason NDS is not exposed all over the cos everyone is scared of Rupert The Bear thats really more of the real fact's
But im sure once a few more providers change to NDS
You will see a big change in the way PIRACY is exposed on the net
Im remember a time when RUPERT was accused in a 50 million dollar legal battle with canal that it was in fact rupert hacking all these other encryptions so he could sell NDS the only not hacked // hahaha but thats another story
NDS IS HACKED ( 10000% ) many receivers work and CS
NDS know already and will change to SD CRYPT to stop CS and Piracy
BUT SD CRYPT WILL ALSO GET HACKED
Bassett did'nt mr rupert go after a well known hacker who was selling pirate SKY Cards and tracked him down hiding in your country
Thats proof enough LOL
E-Direct is correct. In Europe one does not have to look very far on the forums to find many offers for C/S servers carrying the UK and Italian *** packages. The 'marriage' of cards to boxes is being circumvented. Will the SD system stop that? Hard to say, but doubtful.
since maby 20 Years cat and Mouse Game
N"S its not secure so Hackable Cardsharing needs Internet so also Streaming so the Provder cant beshared so maby can watch on stream I2E know this i am sure

Thank you for your concise reply, Are you in fact saying that an NDS encrypted service can in fact be obtained fully independent of the pay
providers receiver [married to it's sub card or not] and without the use of an official card.
Or are you saying that the service can be accessed, with a non-standard
[supplied] satellite receiver, but with a supplied sub'card
If the former is correct, perhaps you could give some brief details, [we don't need a "how to guide" ] of receivers and type of card used to obtain the service.
In this country with the case of Foxtel, a parallel service is used , with both
OdeptO 2 and NDS running [Austar does not use NDS ] Is the replier sure that he is referring to the NDS service and not the OdeptO 2 service.
This may be of interest to the forum, Today Foxtel have made a take'over bid for Austar, As there is no competition between the two [ Foxtel services the main towns and cities, Austar does the country regions ] If this is successful and in line with ACCC requirements, then it's an even bet that they will implement an NDS service for the Austar subscribers
many years ago now which involved OdeptO 1 . It was reported the man was employed by OdeptO in an anti-pirating role . The other report was the CS
operation, running in Perth. There was a million Dollar fine with costs of one Million dollars, which effectively shut them down,, It also sent a message to others, with the same intentions
