A New Level of Sucking for the OSN Reciever!!!!!

Yesterday at 4 PM… i was ready to settle in front of the tv… i checked the OSN guide and i found there is a movie that looks promising… Caroline on OSN HD 1… i put the channel… the movie had just started… 2 seconds and BAM!

I get the Message above “The Programme is Copy Protects” … the screen is all black… i can hear the movie and read the arabic subtitling but i cannot watch the movie!? You know when you go to a hotel and they give you a preview of a  movie by showing you a glimpse then the screen goes blank with a message to purchase the movie? This is a similar thing… only i am paying 16+ KD a month to include the bloody HD channel in my subscribtion and it usually works!

I thought it was a mistake. I closed the reciever and opened it again, no such luck! What is this supposed to mean y3ni? Ok copy right protected so why are you broadcasting it if ur not willing to show it on TV ? No really i DO NOT UNDERSTAND this… this is what we call in Arabic 3aba6 o estehbal… i can’t watch a movie for a channel i am paying for because it’s copy right protected? News flash for you… ALL THE MOVIES ON PLANET EARTH ARE COPY RIGHT PROTECTED! OSN? Your reciever sucks… your movies suck… your transmission suck… your service suck… your subscribtion suck… and your pricing suck and I AM NOT GOING TO UPGRADE AND PAY MORE SO I CAN GET THE NEW RECIEVER IF THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO…

  1. اي والله ارسالهم تعيس وحتى الريسفر هالايام الاشاره ما تلقط عدل بكل المحطات 😦


  2. I am having so many problems with this crappy ‘new’ decoder.. I called them yelling too many times to keep count… I have just pretty much given up on getting anything done right with them.. OSN truly sucks… 😦 We need a new satellite company! Better yet, why not let us subscribe to the TV channels from abroad (and actually watch it with the rest of the world instead of being a season or two behind)… I would pay good money for that!

        Oh honey don’t worry, even if you do get the new reciever and upgrade and pay more its still garbage, walla i am not exaggerating when i say that me and my husband fight with them every single month walla, they are unprofessional and unreliable, tadroon laish, cuz mako ‘3airhom , we’re stuck with them


  3. Just cancel the damn thing already


  4. Danderma why don’t you collect all complaints from your readers and contact consumer protection program? I’m sure they can do something. At least get your money back.

      unfortunately I don’t think they can do anything… what do i say the reciever sucks o yega6e3? or they block some things on purpose? What will they do force them to change el reciever into what?


  5. Yes say enna el received sucks o yega66e3! if you gather a lot of people on this complaint then it will be clear that they are not offering what they are being paid for. Them being contacted by consumer protection must at least raise a flag. They might ask them to change the receiver without upgrading. Or they can get your money back. You will never know until you contact them.
