I never said it was JUST a laptop. There were definitely more tools involved (I don't happen to remember though as I was 15 when I read this)
Though I will admit I probably made it sound easier than it is. Let me re-phrase that, "It would be easy to do... if you were an experienced hacker"
Having also done volunteer work for a local TV station, I know the kind of equipment they use for live events, which is essentially what I'd be
talking about. All the equipment for live shows essentially was all in a van (a moving vehicle). I'm sure an experienced hacker with the equipment
could replicate it or get a hold of it, and simply make sure that he knows how to interrupt and decrypt the sat signal.
