DISH Networks Keys
Whether people steal for the practical notion of being able to get something for nothing or if it’s done for the thrill, stealing has been around for as long as there has been something worth taking. DISH Networks keys are high on the list these days. These keys unlock a person’s receiver so that he can enjoy DISH Network® all-digital satellite programming without paying for it.
Why DISH Networks Keys are so Valuable
DISH Networks keys come to their recipients via paid subscriptions for channel packages chosen by the customer. Other people find satellite dishes for sale, buy other equipment and Illegally obtain DISH Network's keys; They believe they're getting 100% free satellite television, since they won't pay for a HDTV satellite/cable subscription. Other people actually pay for basic channel packages and then pay a large payoff to hackers for stolen key codes to larger premium packages.
Unlike other large HD cable/satellite providers, when you compare channel packages at Internetlion.com for DISH Network service, you’ll find their price points to be the lowest available for the quality you get. You can have 60+ HD channels at your fingertips for $24.99 per month, which is about 83 cents a day. Therefore, the efforts made and risks taken to steal DISH Networks keys seem disproportionate.
What it Takes to Have Free Satellite Television
The irony of the situation is that, unlike many HD cable/satellite subscriptions, in order to be able to have free satellite television, you have to pay quite a lot up front.
- First, you need to find satellite dishes for sale and you may pay a lot if you want HD capabilities.
- Then you may need a motor, a signal strength meter, an LNBF and tripod. When you get started with DISH Network, you never have to do research and look for satellite dishes for sale or determine on your own what additional equipment you need for installation as they take care of everything for you and you can have your complete system up within 24 hours.
- Next, you have to find feature appropriate FTA receivers, which can cost almost $370 if you want to be able to enjoy HD programming, possibly more if you want it to have the DVR function.
- If you can’t or don’t want to do the installation yourself, you would then have to pay someone to install the equipment you bought, which usually means a hefty labor charge as most installers require payment simply for coming out to your place. Many HDTV satellite/cable providers have standard professional installation included or thrown in with promo codes.
- Lastly, you have to find the hacker sites that have the keys, many of which won’t actually work. You can expect to pay a lot as it is a one-time payment, rather than a monthly charge like with a HD cable/satellite subscription.
The truly frustrating deal breaker for many who consider this option is that DISH Networks keys are always changing. The company periodically and intermittently changes the keys in order to protect their paying customers and to keep profitable to provide the best service possible. One of the great reasons to get satellite television is that there are fewer outages and service interruptions with HDTV satellite. Cable companies can’t match the record of satellite providers. However, you can be assured of frequent service interruptions if you can’t seem to find the next, latest, working keys. Plus, don’t forget when you do find the keys; you have to pay up again. When time is money and money is money, how free does your free satellite television sound now?
