I'm not surprised there is a poor take up of AJS cards.There has been very little advertising, certainly not in English, but I eventually figured out where to get the normal smart card. Went thru' a lot of hassle to get it to work on my Showbox & now when I go to the website to upgrade to the World Cup package, the "System has been disabled".
It now seems like I will need to go & buy another card at a petrol station to get the right channels.

waiting for the list of best venues to watch the games .... it is much fun than watching the games home ...especially the key ones.

Well maybe if they publicised it properly there might be more sales ! Or sold the cards somewhere more high profile. I've never heard of Target or Wadi Nada electronics.
Also are we guarenteed English commentary? Or is Arabic compulsory?

Just hope that, every day during the world cup, Timeout will sort all the places where we can watch the games in Dubai!!
Would be great!
Thanks in advance!

Maybe sales are sluggish because the majority of people no longer have the disposable income for such &/or are tired of switching from one subscriber to another whilst amassing numerous decoders, remote controls & dishes & being ripped off into the bargain. Sport is no longer available to the masses only the rich who can afford these hefty prices.
