Short answer - some areas just need them

Long(er) answer - (not so prevalent nowadays, since the authorities started clamping down a few years ago, but) some people install a dish/use a pirated 'smart card' in an off-the-shelf decoder in order to (a) save money and (b) access otherwise unavailable channels :p

We couldn't find anything we wanted via satellite that was not on, or cheaper via the Du package.

Only exception to this was the Pinoy package for our maid.

It could also be that those dishes are being used with a free to air box and that the 'owners' aren't paying for a package.
