And, where, who, how do you get your access cards done? I hear tell, some ways are better than others, but I have a friend who can get an "open script" access card whereby he can get all the channels offered. Is there a way to program or download scripts for your own satellite using a Mac?
Well, stealing may be a crime, but when you are stealing 78000 channels of crap... well, only the providers are gonna care about that...
Personally, I lost cable back in June and I really haven't missed TV since (Apparently Rogers wanted MONEY for their service. The gall! [img]tongue.gif[/img] ). With my Mac, and my DVD collection, if I wanna vegetate for a while, I throw in a flick I like.
I still get to watch a few shows (Buffy, Angel, Firefly and John Doe) due to a friend taping the eps for me and lending me the tape (which, is also technically illegal too).

"Where are we going? And what am I doing in this handbasket?"
I'm talking about a grey market product, not pirating or stealing. Point of fact, I agree "stealing satellite" is illegal, but that would imply you could get it legally. The CRTC has determined where I can get my TV signal from (a duopoly, ExpressVu and StarChoice), in effect they have censored my viewing choices. DirecTV wanted to come into Canada, but they were told, no. I guess, because we would lose "our Canadian identity" if all we viewed were American shows. Excuse me!? I hardly think taking American shows and inserting Canadian commercials preserves our "identity".
I am not complaing about cost, my choice is what matters. I would love to pay for DirecTV, but the truth remains, I am not allowed to even choose. By the way, I keep basic cable for my "Canadian content" and internet service.
I totally agree with you on the point of American Programming
Most of the TV shows that we get are form the US, and it's kinda funny, I sitll don't want to be a US citizen, have I lost my identity as a Canadian? Hell no, it's all a bunch of crap anyway.
