TStv Africa Updates: Now has certain exclusive rights for sports
over the past couple of days, there has been a real buzz about tstv Africa. The whole thing started when tstv started showing the pre-season since July 31st. Upon further investigation, we were made to realise that they now have the exclusive rights to one EPL match on Saturdays(something formerly owned by kwese) and DFB Pokal league. Aside from that, they have also added more grande sports channels to make it 7 in all.
Sadly, despite claiming to have acquired the rights, they are still battling to stabilize the service. I pray for them to get it right sooner than later. You can follow our realtime updates on TStv here.
beoutQ Channels Have been Blocked By World Sports Bodies in Europe
If you have been following this site with keen interest, you would remember I reviewed beout sports channels during my review of tiger star m5 super. You can read up the post here. World sports bodies such as UEFA, FIFA, afcon, AETA and of course, EPL has been frowning at the operations of beouQ since inception.
To them, and according to Wikipedia, beoutQ is a pirate pay-television broadcaster serving. Established in 2017, the service primarily simulcasts the programming of the Qatar-based beIN Sports, with beoutQ on-air logos overlaid over those of beIN Sports. The channels have similarly taken content from other broadcasters, and its set-top boxes also contain access to various IPTV services carrying other forms of live channels and entertainment content.
Reactions that Led to the Termination of beoutQ Channels
At the moment, beoutQ has been taken out. I don’t know if and when they will stage a comeback. this is a big slap on the alternative to pay-tv community. The takedown of beout was helped by the block on the satellite space of Saudi Arabia. Below is the last steps were taken by authorities whose rights were infringed upon by beoutQ that led to the cease of services by beout. Click here to read more.
In July 2019, FIFA, the AFC, the Bundesliga, La Liga, the Serie A, and UEFA issued a joint statement condemning beoutQ, and urged Saudi authorities to take “swift and decisive action” against the broadcaster. The parties stated that they “have reached the conclusion, regrettably, that it is now not possible to retain legal counsel in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia which is willing or able to act on our behalf”
What is New and Trendy on Lemmy morgan August 2019 Update?
Here is the segment where will highlight what is new in the satellite TV and IPTV world since our last monthly update in July.
Dstv IPTV Available but be warned
From a reliable source, I discovered that there is a working IPTV that opens DStv channels. However, the account is billed monthly and it is expensive. Sadly, we all know that anything DStv is bad news as they don’t really last long. On the other hand, we are expecting a d.s.t.v cccam I don’t know if it will see the light of the day but let us keep hope alive.
Canal Sports HD & Polsat Now available on Hotbird- With this, Hotbird can now show EPL
While the appearance of polsat on Hotbird is no longer news, the appearance of major canal sports channels is. This feat, it means, there are no sports in the world that is not available on Hotbird at the moment. Prior to this, you can’t watch EPL matches on hotbird steadily. However, that is about to change, at least for now. Enjoy all soccer games from all leagues on Hotbird while it last. The above picture is further proof. The frequency is 11279 V 27492.
AFN $ Sony PowerVu Package Update
Lemmy Morgan August 2019 update also have news on AFN. As at the time of publishing this article, no device is currently opening AFN Power. In other words, AFN has been Blocked on all 3rd Party Devices. Therefore, if you can’t open it with any powerVu auto-roll decoder, you are not alone.
Similarly, Sony powervu package has been blocked on almost all decoders. At the moment, only Tigerstar decoders with forever/g-share account can open it. The list of tiger decoders that can open Sony includes t300, T8 Ultra and T800+.
3D Ultimate G12 + RF Decoder: Supports multi-stream channels
This is one of the hottest satellite receivers currently. I will do a broader review of this decoder later in this very post. Just know that it has a unique feature in the sense that it supports multistream channels especially on joy tv.
Lemmy Morgan August 2019 Updates on Working IKS(Cccam) Accounts
Itemized below are the least of currently working IKS/Cccam accounts as of August 2019.
- Cosmote Packages including all their sports channels is still opening with tiger star decoders with forever and g-share account. E.g, t3000, t8 ultra and t800+. Same applies with any decoder with orca server for example icone. Read more here.
- Icone Nigeria Cccam account opens all packages in Europe include 9E channels(except Cosmote)
- Also, canal reunion 16e and zap 36e account are still working.
Working IPTV Accounts as of August 2019
- The new entrant is DStv IPTV account. However, I still have major reservations about its longevity. I would advise only hardcore FTA enthusiast to venture into this. No one wants to lose money. DStv will kill the server at the first chance.
- Secondly, we have the ever strong and evasive Xtream IPTV still firing on all cylinders.
- Finally, on the list of 3rd-party IPTV accounts, we have e-vision
- Next is some lists of builtin IPTV accounts. Such list are limitless but the notable ones include ferrrai, platinum, royal, orca iptv, apollo, homecloud myhd and so on.
Lemmy Morgan August 2019 Update on SKS Accounts and Devices
Most old-time lemmites would remember the era of avatar, azsky, a+, microbox dongles whereby we weren’t using the internet. Instead, we were using Eutelsat 7A 7.0ºE as our server. Such technology is known as “SDS”. It was very easy to patch. The good news is that the technology is back on specific tiger decoders and starSat extreme receiver.
Similarly, all auto-roll decoders for biss channels maintain their ranking as there is no patch. However, most decoders auto-rolling Sony could no longer do so while all decoders have stopped opening AFN powervu channels. Now, let me drop a short tutorial on how to setup SDS on tigerstar and starsat decoders
How to Enable SDS Mode on Starsat SR 9000 and Tiger t800+ mini/i500 hyper
Setting up SDS mode is pretty easy and straightforward. all you have to do is to get two satellite dishes ready. One must face the satellite you want to watch and the other will be the server dish(this replaces your internet connection).
- Two satellite dishes.
- either starsat sr 9000 extreme(quite expensive), or tiger hyper or tiger t800+
- The code that opens the patch which is F1 + 111
Steps to activate the SDS mode
- Track your first to face any of the satellite position that is supported by the receiver. Hotbird is the most popular on this list. you will need a dish bigger than 3.5meters to receive most channels on Hotbird. This must go to “tuner 1” LNB port.
- You can use a 90cm dish in west Africa to track the server. SDS mode uses either Express AM8 14.0ºW (frequency: 10955 H 1555 KU band) or Eutelsat 12 at 12.5ºW(frequency: 10963 V 4600 Ku band)
- Next, connect your server dish to the “tuner 2” LNB IN port at the back of your decoder.
- Now, you need to power on your receiver and once it boots dial “F1 + 111” on your remote in quick succession and it will take you to the UART Mode list choose “SDS Mode” as shown below:
- Congratulations, you have enabled SDS mode and you can use it to watch satellite tv packages supported by the tiger or starsat decoder that you are using. I will quickly add that the internet(iks) mode is overall more reliable than SDS mode.
Lemmy Morgan August 2019 New Decoder Review
Last month, i received icone iron plus decoder. This month I shall be reviewing 3D ultimate multi-stream decoder.
What are the Benefits of Multistream Technology?
With the introduction of DVB-S2 multistream technology, users can now combine multiple digital data streams into a single satellite carrier. Furthermore, multistream offers several important user benefits.
- First, each stream is independently configurable with complete user control for choosing any number of streams.
- Second, multistream allows more features to be contained into a single device. Even externally fed baseband frames with proprietary content can be made part of the system, while still having traffic and signal control as part of the same device.
- Finally, by using a single satellite carrier, operators can realize significant savings in bandwidth costs.
3D Ultimate Digital Satellite Reciever Review(G12 + RF Multistream decoder)
This decoder’s multistream feature works perfectly on joy-tv package. as you can see from the picture above, channels that the non-multistream receivers can’t scan appeared on 3d ultimate. For example, this decoder is able to scan for hidden channels on JoyTv position such as: GTC Sports plus, Bryt, KFS, TV3, Max tv and so on
CAS Features of 3D Ultimate Receiver
