Entry of TATA Sky, Dish TV Receivers Banned in Dubai Airport

Quotes:
At the scanner machine in the airport, my receiver was confiscated. Several other passengers were also stopped at the scanner machine for carrying the equipment," said a Mangalorean who landed through Air India Express on Thursday.

Detaining receivers at the airport is the only way to stop Dish TV service in UAE, as it may not be possible to block the transmission of channels to these receivers. Those who have already installed the receivers may find themselves lucky, but authorities say that, viewing TV channels through un-authorized Dish TV or TATA SKY is illegal!

Brings back memories of Hindi movies from the 70s/80s, with smugglers arriving in small dingies from the gulf carrying gold/electronics with them. Only this would now be in the reverse direction, with Indian smugglers selling Tata Sky/DishTV receivers at a premium in the Gulf Smile

In TATA Sky terms and conditions, taking the Dish or Digicomp(Set Top Box) or Digicard to a foreign land is illegal...
