You will agree with me that is this a mixed news. We have a bad news(Sport 24 HD) side by side with a good one(those anticipating the broadcast of tstv). Today’s information will address the sport 24 HD & tstv Africa channels update issues. Yesterday the 6th of October, 2017 sport 24 went off on all decoders.

What has happened to sport 24 HD
Unlike the previous security patch by sport24 HD, the current one is a bit tricky. As at the time of writing this post, sport 24 HD emulator 2.7 is still very much alive. However, what is currently offline is “emulator’s oscam variant” for clarification purposes, “Oscam” is what decoder manufacturers utilise on their boxes. They modify and port the original emulator into their respective device’s software. This tweak enables the decoder to run the emulator and by extension, you can enjoy the channels.
It is left to be seen how events play out as the hacker credited for the hack has no issue with his invention so to speak. However, we think the respective powervu decoder manufacturers should be able to workaround this latest patch by sport 24 HD. I mean sport 24 HD is only off on oscam and not on the computer via DVB / PCI card. As a reminder, the solution was discovered on a computer software via DVB cards and readers
The question now is that won’t this prompt another software release? Secondly, how long will this continue? Also, won’t this further discourage the release of software for older decoders? And finally, I pity mostly those who own a tigerstar 3000 Android decoder because they will have to be downloading a file not lesser than 287mb anytime there is a new software.
Summarily, let keep the hope alive.
