    What happened with this? Is it still going to happen? Or have Sly done a deal?

    I don't know if it was part of the deal or not but the Discovery network added a new channel to the lineup, Quest Red. They could have easily called it Quest Crappy Repeats mind.

    Both parties claimed that the other backed down, lol.

    Thought I would bump this thread as anyone using Sky alternatives (ie. Zgemma boxes) will be aware that Sky are beginning to crack down on the card sharing and channels are going dark. Some went a few weeks ago and yesterday more went eg. SS2/3/4, SSN and a load more. Box Office had already gone. I think the reality this is the beginning of the end. The way to go now is either a Cable (Virgin) card sharing box if you have cable or an IPTV sub which you can use on the Zgemma.

    i still have SS1, 2 and 3 at the moment but most of the others from your list have gone yes.

    How disappointing but not surprised as Sly must be losing out on millions in lost subscriptions.

    Hi, Would it be worth me buying a 12 mth iptv sub or is there a chance these could be shut down also? I have the Zgemma which is now going tits up. I've no clue about Iptv, is it any better then a firestick for instance? Thanks in advance.

    IPTV is basically paid streaming it's more reliable than free streaming and eventually will replace card sharing as top dog; it's not as solid though yet
    Like any pirate service there's a chance it gets busted; never pay more than you'd be bothered about losing out on imo, make sure they have a decent rep as well
