ABOUT DSTV UPGRADE OF FEBRUARY 25th 2015 and The 7 WAYS FORWARD
- February 25, 2015
- Satellite TV
I have confirmed that every decoder / dongle / account used in decrypting dstv channels has stopped working as at now
Prior to the total offline, all sports channels have stopped opening since 20th of February.
WHY DID EVERYTHING STOPPED ALMOST AT THE SAME TIME
Even though by now, everyone ought to know that there is always the risk of blocking of channels by dstv on unofficial devices,
I will still repeat it that anytime you observe that everything goes off simultaneously or on after the other, then we are talking about dstv upgrade.
In other words, dstv launch an attack all devices or account used by anyone to open their channels without using their own decoders.
Meaning; tv1 cccam account has stopped opening any channels as at today, killer cccam account has stopped, supertv cccam account has stopped, any other cccam has stopped opening dst* account, also A+, besth, and azsky have all stopped opening any premium channels on dstv frequency.
Like I said, this was caused by dst* hard upgrade.
IS THIS THE END OF ALL DONGLES / IKS DECODERS?
I am full of my own biases, to me personally, I don’t think this is the end. To me dst* has not yet done the unthinkable that could block all devices and accounts for months, let alone years.
However, all fingers are crossed for now. We are hoping for a comeback soon.
IN THE MEANTIME, WHAT IS THE WAY FORWARD
We have several fta channels. As i speak Tv3 that is on multiv Ghana is currently showing arsenal vs Monaco champions league match. I am saying we have some free to air channels showing live soccer matches across major leagues. We have the following options:
- New and hot, Champion TV YAMAL 402 Satellite 55.0E and it is somewhere above mytv position(remember mytv is 68.5.0E). This channel showed Barca vs Man city yesterday. It has other channels too that even include porn channels.
How to track Champion TV: Please use 90cm dish to track it and use the following frequency and symbol rates : 11045 (V) 40000 . make sure you get a signal of 75% before you stop then enter the following frequency and scan for some more channels; 10991 (V) 08000 then you can blindscan to get more channels including the porn channel. Note: please if you are not an installer, ask your local satellite to come and help you track it.
- TV3 on multitv freequecny: tv3 has been on for sometime
- Amos KU: we have channels like rdv, evasion…..
- If you own a qsat q26g or a speed hd decoder, you can use the canalsat account on it to watch live sports channels like can+s, supersport 3, sport+ etc..
- You can also stream all live matches online like you will stream youtube videos from such sites like: rojadirecta.me
- You can also buy any premium iptv set top box or use some android app like Arok Tv or sybla tv to stream live matches.
- Before I forget, if you own a tlink decoder, and you have a big dish that can track hotbird 13.0E packages, you can now watch Beinsports HD 1 & 2 on tlink on hotbird position(Note: beinsports originally belongs to nilesat, but nilesat had long stopped unofficial devices from opening beinsports on their position.
While we all wait for the arrivals of our dogs, we can make do with free to air to watch live soccer. I know majority already have gotv, startimes and similar low subscription packages to meet their news and entertainment needs. The sleeping dogs can come back anytime.
