Strong decoders and some of its congenial partners could be used to track frequencies and broadcast them other than the authorized decoders. This means one can track frequencies of choice(not necessarily the one the decoder was meant for) and watch them undisturbed.
Although thus effective on tracking, users can't necessary subscribe to paid channels with these universal decoders unless done by a third party device.
Notwithstanding, free-to-air channels on those frequencies can be viewed without necessarily paying for it.
Besides viewing FTA channels via universal decoders, knowledge of frequencies is also needed by satellite tv installers to install accurately the different pay-tv satellite dishes and antennas.
