    yes i can, but i currently dont have any receivers that does that encryption via server, which would make service cheaper, so if you have the original receiver i can set it up, its $39.99usd monthly though, this is for direct tv Caribbean regional which is controlled from trinidad, the service is very bad in terms of signal

    HOWEVER- Dishnetwork carries all the channels except flow sports, hype tv and a few other caribbean stuff

    signal is pretty good especially if you have a 4ft dish or bigger, signal is way much better on sky-mexico than dishnet though, both are 100% better than direct-tv where the signal is crappy.

    as for ecm(electronic counter measures for who dont understand) we dont worry over that anymore as its authenticated via server(receiver is always connected to the internet) so if there is an ecm the server does all the mods needed, back in the days we use to need to unloop and repair cards, we dont do that anymore, when u pay for a year it runs for a year.

    Hello. Here's an interesting article on ReadyTV

    http://geezam.com/readytv-local-merchants-800000/

    They're aiming for some 800000 in their first year of operation with their prepaid options. Pretty cool

    They have 10 channels of Free Cable TV as listed in this article

    http://geezam.com/readytv-10-free-digital-tv-channels/

    Very good service too

    Anyone know what system they use..ATSC or DVB-T?

    And if one if those then would u be able to pick it up on a car TV tuner?..I mean if a car tuner supports conditional access and can be authorized.

    I think it could be DVB-T as that is what Flow uses on its network, and most of DISL (Ready TV) major vendors are from Europe. Jamaica is planning to go fully digital by 2021, and the Media Association of Jamaica is calling for the ATSC standard to be adopted for Jamaica. As well as allow each media house to choose which standard they want to use, seeing that both DVB-T and ATSC has major interoperability similarities. I am not sure about the car tuner, as the service is encrypted and cannot be accessed legally without the set top box. You would have to call them to get clarification on these major technical information.
