    What is the best FTA Receiver to use? Also are they very easy to track/can you get in trouble/is it enforced/what is the maximum penalty? [​IMG]

    It's stealing, yes you can get caught/in trouble by the Satellite provider once they find out that someone's getting their services and not paying for it. I'd imaging the penalty would be a hefty fine and a short stint in jail.

    Form what I understand there is FTA: which is actual legal, free, satellite TV; but its not anything premium that you would find on cable.

    Some people just use this FTA equipment to get free premium satellite TV by hacking it I guess.
