1. A system comprising:
one or more circuits for use in a transceiver that is collocated with a satellite dish, said one or more circuits being operable to:
remove first content protection from content obtained from a received satellite signal;
after said removal of said first content protection, apply second content protection to said content based on local protection data, wherein at least part of said local protection data is obtained from one or more client devices;
after said application of said second content protection, transmit said content onto one or more links between said satellite dish and said one or more client devices.
