Clips from Dish Network's "Pirate TV" scold channel (circa 2008)

"Hello, you're watching Dish Network's Pirate TV Channel."

Apparently only viewers with unauthorized access to Dish Network would see the "Pirate TV" channel that consisted of this message, looping forever.

Below, a version from around 2009: "Hello, you're watching Dish Network. Did you know you're a satellite pirate?"
