What is Cardsharing (sharing)?
Cardsharing is a way to watch encrypted TV channels. In which the viewer does not have an official access card in his set-top box. The keys for decoding it are automatically received via the network from the receiver or from a server physically located elsewhere.
Cardsharing is actively used all over the world to organize the viewing of pay-TV operators’ TV channels. Technically, you can Cardsharing with any digital TV standard (DVB-C, DVB-S, DVB-T). But, as a rule, the technology is mainly used in satellite TV (DVB-S, DVB-S2).

How cardsharing works
For Cardsharing, the user needs:
- Satellite dish tuned to the desired satellite;
- Receiver with support for cardsharing;
- The presence of a network connection to which the receiver is connected to receive keys from the server.
- The user’s receiver (4) receives the encoded channel from the satellite (1).
- If cardsharing of this channel is available, the receiver (4) sends a request via the Internet (3) to the server (2).
- The server (2) sends the decoding key to the receiver (4) via the Internet (3).
- The receiver (4) uses the key to decode the channel and displays the picture on the TV (5).
The request and subsequent reception of the key in the receiver occur once every few seconds.
Features of Cardsharing
Cardsharing has both advantages and disadvantages.
Benefits of cardsharing
1. Low cost
Compared to the official subscription, card sharing is several times cheaper (and in some cases, it is completely free).
2. Absence of bureaucracy
Cardsharing does not require a visit to the operator’s office and the conclusion of official agreements. The user does not need to wait long for the activation of access cards. Also, there is no need to change the old access card to a new one in cases when the operator replaces them in bulk with subscribers. And also if the subscriber’s access card has been damaged, lost, etc. In rare cases, you just need to change one or more parameters in the receiver settings.
3. Access in any country
With the help of card sharing, you can watch paid channel packages in any country where there is a signal from this satellite and not only where the operator officially offers its services. For example, an official subscription to NTV-PLUS can only be purchased in Russia or Ukraine. With the help of card sharing, you can also watch the operator’s channels in Belarus, Poland, Lithuania, and other nearby countries.
Disadvantages of cardsharing
1. Internet addiction
If the official subscription to pay satellite TV does not require the Internet, then it is mandatory for card sharing. So, if you want to watch satellite TV in a country house where there is no Internet. Then with the help of card sharing it will be impossible.
2. Insufficient stability
Uninterrupted viewing of channels using cardsharing also depends on the stability of the Internet. In addition, the server from which the receiver receives the keys should also be highly stable. In the case of an official subscription, the Internet and the server are not used. The receiver receives decoding keys directly from the satellite.
