A Short Primer to CCcam Server & Cardsharing

One of the best ways of catching your favorite TV programs and other TV contents is through CCcam and Card-sharing. You can watch them in real time as it happens whenever and wherever in the world they are broadcast from.

Europe and Globe

we support all European countries and all countries across the globe. For regular individuals like you and me, the mention of the methods in doing this is intimidating. It would sound as if one should possess a thorough technical knowledge of electronics and must be a complete computer expert.

To cut through the gobbledygook of highfaluting technical language, CCcam and Card-Sharing is simply a system wherein many clients (TV receivers) are allowed to have access to a subscription network with only one valid subscription card.

This is done through the electronic sharing of the subscription card’s data by all the sharers. This enables all the sharing clients to have the same-time access to the scrambled DVB streams (the many signals from the subscribed TV networks) which comes encrypted. (If the access is successful, the contents are available for viewing.)

CCcam is the server that controls the operations. Card-sharing, which is self-explanatory, means one subscription card is used and shared by many users.


This technical innovation definitely has benefits to its users, the card sharers. Consider this scenario.

You are flipping the many channels on your TV. You passed by several channels which you have heard about or may have known their contents. Yet, unfortunately, you cannot open and see their contents because they are all locked.

Locked here means these channels are encrypted and are not available for you to view. Your regular satellite dish receiver can only show you your paid-for channels. You cannot unlock (decrypt) the other channels that are closed without paying.

First, your system is not designed to support card-sharing.  Second, it is unable to run the software for CCcam protocol.

However, there are now ways to connect your TV system to your chosen CCcam server.


There are now satellite receivers that are capable of card-sharing and are sold everywhere online. One popular choice is Dreambox, a Linux-based receiver. Installation of both hardware and software are not that difficult even for beginners.

The steps are varied, though (hook up to PC, insert smart card, download, install CCcam software, configure, and run to connect to CCcam server).

CCcam server, on the other hand, is a protocol that gives access to digital packages (these are the contents of the channels) where the server is connected to the Internet. It works by transferring the encrypted channel signal codes to a network of computers.

Computer communication

Your computer talks to the server which will then send you the decrypted channel codes. This will then give you access to the TV channels not available to you before. The CCcam server also makes it possible to have other subscribers share the same information (the previously unavailable actual channel contents).

The number of available channels depends on where you live, the size of your satellite dish and where it is pointed at.

This service had been actually intended for users who are in countries that don’t have provider representatives and do not have the opportunity of buying subscription to the package they desire.

How the system works

The first requirement is that card-sharing receivers should be able to communicate over a network that is properly configured. It starts with a device that will confirm where the smart card is. Those without the smart card are satellite card-sharing clients.

Another name for card-sharing is control word sharing. This is the method of having many clients (TV receivers) being able to access a TV network on subscription using just one valid card.

Delivery system

The control words for the system is short and small it is easy to deliver to all the different clients through their Internet connection at home. This had triggered the birth of many sharing network groups where users share their subscription cards with the others in the group.

With it, they are also able to receive the channels they want which the user’s card can decrypt as if that user controls and owns every subscription card that is network-connected. There were other networks as well that were created where the server has many legitimate cards connected to it.

Electronic sharing

This is done through the electronic sharing a part of the valid conditional output data of the smart card. In turn, this enables all the clients (recipients) to have simultaneous access to the scrambled DVB streams which are held in the TV network which is encrypted.

Typically, this smart card should be legitimate and must be attached to the host television receiver which has to be digital. Moreover, it must be equipped with software to be able to share the decrypted 64-bit “control word” key over a network like the Internet, for instance.

Once the client gets this key, it is now possible to decrypt the content (which is encrypted) as if they are using their own card.
There are some necessary components needed to start your card-sharing server. This includes the network-based hardware like the Dreambox CCcam receiver. Like a regular Ethernet, these receivers must have an Ethernet connection.

Likewise, these must typically use computer software and other plug-ins that are configured to send and receive codes. The software includes Mgcamd, Newcamd, CCcam, Oscam and Wicard emulators. All of these must support CCcam protocol.

The CCcam server also needs a broadband service. It is not possible to use the CCcam server without a broadband service. The server enables you to get the best stations there are.

The best cardsharing server

These days, getting the best TV contents are now attainable by way of finding the best CCcam and card-sharing server that suits your needs. You can now have the best choice of satellite TV packages to servers that are known for their reliability and steady connections.

The reliability of your server’s steady connections means you shall be enjoying from now on your favorite programs without interruptions, drop-outs and other usual glitches associated with common receptions.
