Today the BISS Keys for the BBC SATBACK service on Intelsat 907 at 27.5 west changed.

Interestingly this code change comes only 4 months after the last key change. In the past code changes have been around 6 months. It may be these code changes start to happen on a more regular basis as the service owners become more aware of people hacking into their systems.

If you are using the encrypted signals on Intelsat 907 to watch UK TV (see ) , then you may have lost the channels.

This is because the BISS codes that you have been using to hack erm unlock into these encrypted channels has changed today.

So you will have to wait until the new BISS key codes for the BBC SATBACK service on Intelsat 907 at 27.5W are made available again before you can watch these encrypted channels.

Just one small “issue” some retailers of this system do not tell their clients may happen….
