How Dish Network Keys are Being Hacked
If you are familiar with dish network systems, it is an application that is powered by satellite receivers that is commonly used in homes. It operates by providing the subscriber ready access to around 500 television channels. The dish network phone service, on the other hand lets you use the Internet, or the five hundred-channel television using the telephone line that you have. The good thing with this is that usage of these features does not block traffic to your phone line. In other words, you can use your dish network while simultaneously using your phone.
As mentioned earlier, the dish network system is powered by satellite receivers and transmit signal to a ventral satellite. Now, these satellite receivers have built-in dish network keys. These dish network keys act as the security bearer of the satellite receivers. Dish Network Keys are unique in each dish network unit. Basically, these dish network keys function to give exclusive access to subscribers to a certain set of channels which the subscribers have paid for. On the part of the operators, dish network keys serve as their control to have the subscribers access only to the channels that are included in their subscription.
Then again, anything coded is always possible to break. In the present age of technology, people have become so savvy with the computer and the Internet that they have found ways to break codes and security access. This fact does not exempt the security access codes that are provided by dish network keys. more and more instances have dish network keys been reported to have been breached. What happens is that these code breakers, or otherwise termed as "hackers" bypass the limitations provided by these dish network keys. Some even goes farther than really determining the access code of dish network keys by using certain computer programs. They then tweak the access and enable it to permit free viewing of channels that are not included in the subscription. Well, this is very destructive in the part of dish network operators since hacking of dish network keys can give away free passes to premium channels and pay per view channels.
Aside from altering that access and limitations of subscriptions, code hackers also copy the dish network keys processor chips. Since the security code itself is embedded in an electronic chip that send signals to be analyzed and deciphered by the satellite, hackers copy the exact content of the electronic chip. Then, these hackers reproduce these dish network keys or their electronic chips and sell it illegally. So for example, if you have a dish network receiver at home, but you only have basic subscription. You can buy altered access cards from computer hackers to avail premium subscription, given that the electronic chip that you buy is for a premium subscription.
Now, it follows that these altered dish network keys are way cheaper than buying or subscribing into a legitimate one. Why? Because under normal circumstances, you pay for dish network subscription. Usually, you shell out a monthly amount. But with altered dish network keys, you only pay once and you get to enjoy the service for as long as you want. Now, if you are an existing subscriber already, you can either opt to discontinue your subscription or you can lower your subscription. This set up is indeed a lot beneficial on the part of the subscribers.
Venturing into something like altering your dish network keys or electronic chips can be very risky. But on the other hand, the savings and other benefits you get from getting an altered electronic chip is really very tempting.
