Not surprised. Seems like everyone and their aunty was getting Nova Cy on a dreembox. It was just announced last week that the local sports channels Ltv and Alfa will leave the Nova platform on satellite and be available on cable/digital etc to beat the piracy.

and a large cardshare network on the island has been busted also...supplying Sky UK and....Nova!
So a fair number of those who were getting Nova on a DB may no longer be getting it now...

An interesting part:
He also confirmed that even though the police were primarily interested in dealing with the providers, buyers who purchased the decoders could very well find themselves in hot water, as the law included provisions for them as well.

Anyone who so openly sells illicit subscriptions is really asking to get caught, particularly if they are trading in the home area of the provider. People who pay for these commercial card shares also seem to think that they are not doing any harm to the original service provider, but I think the information in the first posts goes to show that it does harm the providers, particularly the smaller ones, if nobody pays for the service, it dies.
