I wonder if Sky incentivised this in their recent deal to eliminate piracy.

Didn't VM do this with Sky Cinema a year or so ago? Maybe they are just reusing the same strategy.

It’s fundamentally an upgrade to the encryption system switching off the legacy card based system for these channels. So only the newer “cardless“ system will decrypt them.

Makes sense. Thanks jfman.

I'd forgotten this was still a problem.

Sometimes easy to forget it's out there with so much piracy based on streaming.

AFAIK Nagra 3 hasn't been cracked, but I have been offered a pirate service based on sending VM signals over the internet.
