    Default Dominican Cable Providers Steal the Signal

    Many cable companies steal satellite signals, top official warns

    Santo Domingo.- National Copyright Office (Onda) director Marino Feliz Terrero on Thursday revealed a high number of copyright violations, related to satellite signals for programs across the country.

    He said Onda works in all provinces to halt the practice, where a high number of TV cable service providers operate illegally and cannot obtain contracts or permits as legal suppliers, called signal source producer entities.

    The official called on the Dominican Telecomm Institute (INDOTEL) to define the legal status of those companies, since Dominican Republic assumed major commitments by signing the U.S.-Central America-Dominican Republic (CAFTA-DR) free trade agreement.

    this is in direct contravention of WTO and CAFTA agreements. funny how the government does nothing about it.

    Yea, that's funny. We just got cable hooked up in Sosua, and every once in a while the channel would go out and the Dish Network 'Searching for Signal' message would pop up. I was curious, now I know!

    the searching for signal interval is the time between the signal being lost, and the tech guy coming over to hack some codes.

    Truth be known, the local guys no longer can hack the codes for DISH. That became impossible with Nagra3. Now it is about card sharing.

    This was my suspicion as well whenever the "searching for signal" message came up on my cable tv subscription (not satellite) - so I had a feeling the cable company was hacking in to some satellite signals...

    Yes JD, that is precisely what my point is. As long as there is enough bandwidth from the server, there are no dropouts from the card sharing over the internet. When more people are sharing than the system can respond to, you get freezes and dropouts.
