Stealing A Line: How To Get Satellite TV For Free

Aug 17, 2007
Who wouldn't be interested in an opportunity to get satellite TV for free? Those digital quality channels, that CD quality sound, and the immense variety certainly tempts many a person. There are many detractors and doubters on the prospect, but still others swear by the ability to get satellite TV for free. Personally, I am a sceptic and so I shall take that outlook to task.

Too good to be true?

Generally, the offer of free satellite TV is found on the internet or from various people that claim to have pirated satellite signals or have found different ways to come into possession of illegal cable. There is a certain stigma to the notion of getting something for free and many people find these types of offers to be too good to be true. Traditionally, I am one of those people so the idea that I could get satellite TV for free sounds a little funny to me. Still, an investigation was warranted.

I checked a few websites and found the sceptics first. Many were discussing the notion that the satellite signal was not free at all, but often creative marketing was used to hook the consumer with the promise of free satellite setup or installation. The rest would, naturally, be still paid for. It was simply an incentive.

Others experienced this supposed free service in other ways. A common deception employed was the usage of various "cards" that would apparently assist the consumer in virtually "latching on to" existing signals and sharing in the cable satellite network. There is always a fee to these cards, as well, as they must be "charged up" like a battery. Many people report "charging" their cards several times weekly.

Other ways to get it for "free"

Often times, the notion of something for free include a one-time fee and then the remainder of the service or product is administered for free. I have found several supposed "deals" that offer a one-time payment and then offer the remainder of several channels for no further fees.

This system again normally utilizes a viewing card, which again by all popular accounts is something that requires "charging". Other companies use creative wording to convince the consumer they are receiving something for "free", such as monthly rates on the maintenance and the utilization of the ever-popular "hidden fees" to cover the cost of the satellite television which is, apparently, still free of charge.

From my knowledge and research, there isn't really a way to get satellite TV for free by any easy measure. As with most things in life, "free" is often too good to be true.
