We are happy to announce the new brand new internet ready Viewsat 2000 Ethernet FTA free to air satellite receiver. Viewsat users have been demanding a new fta receiver with card sharing features. Well we got great news for you with the brand new Viewsat 2000 Ethernet you can now do Internet Key Sharing (IKS).
Time For The Next FTA Solution, The Viewsat Solution
The Viewsat 2000 Ethernet web unit is one of a kind with a fully secure internet web server already up and running by Viewsat. With the Viewsat 2000 ethernet unit you can have the receiver change its own key codes by using the Viewsat sever setup. This unit is creating a lot of buzz and talk in the FTA world so some of what you hear may not be correct. Many are saying the reason for this new unit is because of new satellite provider changes and saying that old Viewsat units will not work in 5 months. This rumor says that older viewsats won’t be able to always beat the new changes and that nagra3 will be fully working on Viewsat 2000 Ethernet. At this time, that is nothing more then rumors. The great thing about the new Viewsat internet sharing box is that it can be used just like every other Viewsat unit and can be loaded by data-cable.
Want Premium Channels? This software gives over 120 right now including Comedy Central, MTV, Discovery Channel, Broadway Network, Game Network, MovieStat Network, National Geographic, Food Network, Cartoons, Show TV…and even HDTV (high definition television) channels!
The Viewsat 2000 Ethernet differences lies in its great hardware and unbeatable software support. Users will often compare other units with similiar capabilities such as the nFusion Nova or the Neosat IPro 2000 both of these boxes are good units, in fact both of these units share the SAME hardware and are made in the same plant. Users that buy nFusion Nova are some times really mad once they get the unit and find out they MUST install the newest software and that there unit is NOT 100% self updating. This is and other faults and truths are said about nFusion Nova Neosat iPro 2000 because of some dealers. Like the Viewsat 2000 Ethernet, the nFusion Nova allows you to use IKS internet key sharing which allows the internet to change your key codes. Most users love the Viewsats for lots of reasons, great support, great hardware and really great prices for their FTA receivers. If you are looking for a new age FTA satellite receiver for new upcoming changes such as nagra3 key changing support and much more we suggest you look into this great new unit.
The Viewsat 2000 Ethernet is Coming Out This Month in May and will range around $200 – $250.

With the recent advent of PPV, MOVIE and some premium channels going Nagra 3, Lots of GoodFTA users and people on the internet have many questions on whats going on.
What you should know
Viewsat like many FTA receivers are scrambling and freezing on the PPV Movie Channels, International Channels, Canadian Channels and some Premium Channels.
This is not your receiver being broken or a hardware error or not having the latest FTA FILE. This is due to the new encryption system called Nagra 3.
What is Nagra 3?
Nagra 3 is the new encryption being used by Bev and Charlie. This is the 3rd Iteration of Nagra. It BREAK Nagra which has not been done yet, a Hacker must analize the hard and physically develop source code. Once the source code is written the FTA CODERS take this code and tailor it so when ECMS happen, the coders write the files. Hackers make a TON of money for short term work. Then Move on.
If Nagra 2 was hacked, why is not Nagra 3 Hacked Yet?
Nagra 2 was hacked due to a disgruntled Charlie Employee that stole the source code from work and sold it for 2 million dollars to Viewsat. We will all have to wait and see, rumor has it, there was a Nagra 3 hack, but the hacker was arrested.
Why do some Receivers have N3 Fixes and not Viewsat?
Its called IKS or Ethernet Card Sharing. It basically makes your receiver talk to the internet either wirelessly (like your laptop connecting to your router) or through ethernet cable (like your pc to your modem)
Some FTA Receivers have built in IKS and some have External IKS add-ons such as the Sonicview I-HUB (i-hub details)
Will Viewsat have a IKS FIX?
Yes, is releasing the new Viewsat Ethernet 2000. It is a new Receiver that has a built in Ethernet Port to connect up to the Viewsat Servers, so it will have all N3 channels available very soon
Read more about the Viewsat 2000 Ethernet Here -
Viewsat is working on a Serial IKS Dongle solution for the back of the receiver for their current models. They are more than likely releasing new models as well.
Just to let everyone know, the smart card slot on the Xtreme and Ultra could also be used for an ethernet connection. When you hear about a new Viewsat Network IKS receiver model or a Network IKS model coming out – this is all about business and not adding capabilities.
Will I have to buy something for my Viewsat to work?
If you want to keep your existing receiver you will more then likely have to purchase a network adapter that will be comming out sometime in June or July.
Ideally you will want to buy a newer receiver such as the Viewsat Ethernet 2000 or the HD device it will release later this year. New Receivers are comming as well.
Short story, to get a n3 fix in the next few weeks or month, you will have to AT LEAST invest in their network adapter, the new receiver will be out soon.
