Is anyone else using a CCCam on Sky Broadband?
Let me point out, I pay for the full Sky TV package which includes the movie and sports channel (excl BT Sport). As well as my Sky dish, I have a motorised satellite dish and until about a year ago, I used to enjoy watcing a handful of FTA national French/Dutch channels which have since became Scrambled.
As it's almost impossible to buy an official card for these channels here in the UK, for the past month I've subscribed to a CCCam service which unscrambles them perfectly. I have very little interest in the channels on Astra 28.2 (In fact its not even programmed into my receiver).
Does anyone know if Sky have/do terminate accounts who use a CCCam service? As far as I'm aware, there's no streaming involved - packets of data are simply pinged to the box every few minutes or so.

It appears that Sky have been adding a few new methods to improve their security in recent months. It is highly likely that this is why you are getting a problem now.

Sorry I may have mis-worded my post. I haven't been having any problems with the CCCam Service I pay for, it unscrambles the french channels I'm after just fine. It's unfortunate though, if I could subscribe to the french channels officially here in the UK and be sent a viewing card then I wouldn't need to go with this alternative solution.
I guess I just wanted to know whether anyone had known of any cases where Sky contacted users who subscribed to such services. I Imagine its not too hard at all for them to monitor the ports that are being used and work out what its being used for. Or is this something, like downloading movies/music where they would chase the uploaders/providers instead of those on the receiving end?

I wasn't aware that CCCam worked with Videoguard due to the requirement for cards to be paired with individual boxes but assuming that it did work it would be relatively easy for Sky to trace CCCam servers and at the very least get them closed down.
