Satellite and Cable TV Descramblers
If you intend to sell on one or more of eBay's international sites, you will need to accept, and we encourage you to carefully review, the User Agreement, policies, and other requirements of that site. You can continue to reach out to the relevant customer service teams on the respective eBay site of your listing or transaction, as may be applicable to the nature of your query.
eBay does not permit the sale of items that can be used to descramble or facilitate the access to cable or satellite television programming without authorisation or payment. Stating the item is for educational or test purposes will not legitimise a product that is otherwise inappropriate.
Information on "how to" descramble or gain access to cable or satellite television programming without authorisation or payment is similarly not allowed. eBay policy also prohibits the "encouragement" of this type of activity.
Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:
Some examples of items, which are not allowed, include:
Desktop Pay television receivers in most instances remain the property of the Pay Television provider and are not able to be on sale by the consumer. Therefore, these types of units will not be allowed to be listed on eBay.
eBay urges its sellers and buyers to comply with all governmental laws and regulations.
