My family has a subscription to DirectTV in Florida and I would like to take one of the subscribed receivers to Canada. Is this possible?
Of course it is possible Illegal but possible.My family has a subscription to DirectTV in Florida and I would like to take one of the subscribed receivers to Canada. Is this possible?
I have been a member for a long time now and I strongly oppose to people stealing anything. My question was very simple. I do not intend to steal signal as this is an extra subscribed reciever that I would be paying my family monthly for.
I would like to know if it will work when I get to Vancouver and add it to my fta system.
You haven't been tazed until you have been tazed by Homeland Security. They think the Patriot Act supersedes the Constitution. They bust tourists for taking pictures. Bringing an illegal DTV box across the boarder would make them wet themselves. Dudley Doright is still with the RCMP . Don't try it!
I have not had any problems bringing DirecTV receivers into Canada. In fact, one I bought on Ebay and had shipped via post and the Canadian customs even attempted to charge tax and duty on it! There are many people who drive their satellite dish-equipped RVs across the Canadian border and use their DirecTV receivers in Canada.
The day that an INDIVIDUAL gets arrested for watching TV in Canada is the day that I start to devote a lot of my personal time to challenging the constitutionality of all the current 'laws' on the books. I have a very hard time believing that could ever be the case. What has happened (and could still), is that businesses that make their money by setting up customers and selling subscriptions could get busted.
