  4. THE U.K. USERS DEFINITELY NEED A VPN! New Premier League Blocking Disrupts Pirate IPTV Providers This weekend the Premier League began a new round of actions targeting illegal streaming. Reports reveal disruption at many IPTV providers, with some indicating that using VPNs is now a must for UK IPTV subscribers. Interestingly, however, sources at some providers claim to have already mitigated the threat. Top tier football in the UK is handled by the English Premier League (EPL) and broadcasting partners Sky and BT Sport. All face considerable problems with Internet piracy, through free web or Kodi-based streaming and premium IPTV feeds. To mitigate the threat, earlier this year the Premier League obtained a unique High Court injunction which required ISPs such as Sky, BT, and Virgin to block ‘pirate’ football streams in real-time. Although the success of the program was initially up for debate, the EPL reported it was able to block 5,000 server IP addresses that were streaming its content. When that temporary injunction ran out, the EPL went back to court for a new one, valid for the season that began this past weekend. There are signs the EPL may have upped its game. As soon as the matches began on Saturday, issues were reported at several of the more prominent IPTV providers. Within minutes of the match streams going live, subscribers to affected services were met with black screens, causing anger and frustration. While some clearly knew that action was on the cards, relatively few had an effective plan in place. One provider, which targets subscribers in the UK, scrambled to obtain new domain names, thinking that the existing domains had been placed on some kind of Premier League blacklist. While that may have indeed been the case, making a service more obscure in that sense was never going to outwit the systems deployed by the anti-piracy outfits involved. Indeed, the provider in question was subjected to much chaos over both Saturday and Sunday, since it’s clear that large numbers of subscribers had absolutely no idea what was going on. Even if they understood that the EPL was blocking, the change of domain flat-footed the rest. The subsequent customer service chaos was not a pretty sight but would’ve been a pleasure for the EPL to behold. An interesting side effect of this EPL action is that even if IPTV subscribers don’t care about football, many were affected this past weekend anyway. TF is aware of at least three services (there are probably many more) that couldn’t service their UK customers with any other channels whatsoever while the Premier League games were being aired. This suggests that the IP addresses hit by the EPL and blocked by local ISPs belonged to the same servers carrying the rest of the content offered by the IPTV providers. When the High Court handed down its original injunction it accepted that some non-Premier League content could be blocked at the same time but since that “consists almost exclusively of [infringing] commercial broadcast content such as other sports, films, and television programs,” there was little concern over collateral damage. So the big question now is what can IPTV providers and/or subscribers do to tackle the threat? The first interesting thing to note is not all of the big providers were affected this past weekend, so for many customers the matches passed by as normal. It isn’t clear whether EPL simply didn’t have all of the providers on the list or whether steps were taken to mitigate the threat, but that was certainly the case in a handful of cases. Information passed to TF shows that at least a small number of providers were not only waiting for the EPL action but actually had a backup plan in place. This appears to have resulted in a minimum of disruption for their customers, something that will prove of interest to the many frustrated subscribers looking for a new service this morning. While the past few days have been somewhat chaotic, other issues have been muddying the waters somewhat. TF has learned that at least two, maybe three suppliers, were subjected to DDoS attacks around the time the matches were due to air. It seems unlikely that the EPL has been given permission to carry out such an attack but since the High Court injunction is secret in every way that describes its anti-piracy methods, that will remain a suspicion. In the meantime, rival IPTV services remain possible suspects. Also, a major IPTV stream ‘wholesaler’ is reported to have had technical issues on Saturday, which affected its ability to serve lower-tier providers. Whether that was also linked to the Premier League action is unknown and TF couldn’t find any source willing to talk about the provider in any detail. So, sports fans who rely on IPTV for their fix are wondering how things will pan out later this week. If this last weekend is anything to go by, disruption is guaranteed, but it will be less of a surprise given the problems of the last few days. While some don’t foresee huge problems, several providers are already advising customers that VPNs will be necessary. An IPTV provider suggesting the use of VPNs While a VPN will indeed solve the problem in most cases, for many subscribers that will amount to an additional expense, not to mention more time spent learning about VPNs, what they can do, and how they can be setup on the hardware they’re using for IPTV. For users on Android devices running IPTV apps or Kodi-type setups, VPNs are both easy to install and use. However, Mag Box STB users cannot run a VPN directly on the device, meaning that they’ll need either a home router that can run a VPN or a smaller ‘travel’ type router with OpenVPN capabilities to use as a go-between. Either way, costs are beginning to creep up, if IPTV providers can’t deal with the EPL’s blocking efforts. That makes the new cheaper football packages offered by various providers that little bit more attractive. But that was probably the plan all along. Thank You And Have A Great Day.

  15. Could this be the end of Kodi? Premier League chiefs are currently deciding whether to provide live streams of games in an attempt to quash illegal viewing. As of next season, Football League matches will be available online to fans outside of the UK and Ireland. Those who subscribe to iFollow – a digital live streaming and content platform – will pay the equivalent of £110 a season for Championship, League One and League Two coverage. Over 1,500 of these matches will be available in HD quality. Supporters based in the UK and Ireland will still be able to access live audio commentary, highlights packages and exclusive content as part of the new offering, which has been re-branded to replace the EFL’s current PlayerHD platform. And Premier League bosses are now considering whether to make the move into steaming matches online. Around 30% of football fans watch games illegally, many via online sources or through Kodi box add-ons. By embracing online streaming, the Premier League will be offering a new way to watch the sport online without the worry of prosecution. But football chiefs are likely to be reluctant to do anything that will risk reducing the massive £8.2 billion broadcasters paid to air matches between 2016 and 2019. With rights fees for matches skyrocketing and viewing figures for sports broadcasters falling steadily, the organisation is aware that offering a live streaming service could help the imbalance, according to Digiday . Last season saw the biggest drop in live Premier League TV viewing figures for seven years, with both Sky and BT affected. Sky saw a 14 per cent fall in viewing numbers, while BT channels dropped by two per cent. Thank You And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org
  16. Kodi WARNING – Government expected to clamp down on streaming this summer in new crackdown KODI users are being warned that the Government is expected to launch a crackdown on illegal streaming and piracy and it could start as early as this summer. Kodi users have been warned the Government is expected to clamp down on piracy this summer The Kodi surge continues without any sign of stopping, as users continue to ditch paid TV for the online player. Kodi software is not illegal, but developers can produce third-party add-ons that provide free access to pirated and illegal content. The illegal add-ons are being targeted by ISP’s, Government agencies, broadcasters and rights holders. And it’s now emerged that seven million people in the UK are streaming or downloading movies, TV shows or music illegally. This is according to a study carried out by PRS for Music and the Intellectual Property Office (IPO). Ros Lynch, Copyright and IP Enforcement Director at the Intellectual Property Office, said: “There has never been more choice or flexibility for consumers of TV and music, however illicit streaming devices and stream-ripping are threatening this progress. “Content creators deserve to be paid for their work – it is not a grey area. “This Government takes IP infringement extremely seriously and we are working with our industry partners and law enforcement to tackle this emerging threat.” The research found that 15 per cent of UK internet users, approximately seven million people, had either streamed or downloaded material that infringed copyright. In response the IPO had published a “call for views”, asking people in the entertainment industry what should be done. The Government response on how to deal with this widespread copyright infringement is due to be published later this summer. The study found that legitimate streaming services, like Netflix and Spotify, have grown in popularity. However, the research found set top boxes which allows users to illegally stream premium TV content is holding similar businesses back. The IPO said stream-ripping – where users rule and store content from its original platform – is becoming a significant problem. PRS for Music is a body which collects royalties on behalf of the music industry. Chief Executive Robert Ashcroft said: “We hope that this research will provide the basis for a renewed and re-focused commitment to tackling online copyright infringement. “The long term health of the UK’s cultural and creative sectors is in everyone’s best interests, including those of the digital service providers, and a co-ordinated industry and government approach to tackling stream ripping is essential.” Last week the head of the UK’s leading anti-piracy group warned that Kodi users will be targeted in a major new crackdown on illegal streaming. Kodi project lead Martijn Kaijser has revealed his team is looking to bring Digital Rights Management (DRM) to the platform to entice legitimate sources of copyrighted content to Kodi. If the plan works, here are some of the best movies, live sports and video games we’d love to see make the jump to Kodi Kieron Sharp, the chief executive of the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT), said those who use illegal Kodi add-ons “are committing criminal offences”. Speaking to The Independent, he said: “What we’ve been looking at in conjunction with many of our clients and members are the different levels of crime being committed. “There’s the manufacture and importation of devices, and then the distribution and selling of those. We’re also looking at the people who are providing the apps and add-ons, the developers. “And then we’ll also be looking at, at some point, the end user. The reason for end users to come into this is that they are committing criminal offences.” Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org

  22. Almost five million Brits are regularly streaming TV content from illegal Internet services. That’s one of the findings from a new YouGov study which shows that Kodi-powered devices and Android apps are particularly popular with users. Of concern to authorized services is that hundreds of thousands of pirates say they’re canceling their official subscriptions. With Internet access almost universal across the UK and a young, tech-savvy audience fully clued-up on the wonders of on-demand content, little wonder that new ways to consume content are being gobbled up across the country. Unfortunately for content providers, those methods aren’t always official. In fact, all signs point to an uptick in illegal content consumption from a range of relatively new devices which excel when it comes to ease of access. We’re talking about software such as Kodi, the legal media player that can be super-charged to provide a full-on piracy experience. Or custom Android apps like Showbox, Terrarium TV and Mobdro, each capable of delivering premium movies, TV shows and sport, without the user ever paying a penny. The popularity of illegal streaming has prompted market research firm YouGov to conduct a survey on the consumption habits of Brits, with the company concluding that such services pose a “major threat” to TV subscription brands in the UK. According to its “Illegal Streaming” survey, just short of five million people in the UK are using pirate TV streaming services. YouGov says that around 10% of the adult population (4.9m people) currently have access to custom Kodi boxes, modified Fire TV sticks, and illegal streaming apps running on smartphones and tablets. The part that will send shudders down the spines of companies like Sky, Virgin and BT – who are not only ISPs but major content providers too – is that pirate consumers are backing away from premium services. YouGov says that one out of every seven ‘pirate’ streamers say that their use of unauthorized platforms has caused them to cancel “at least one subscription service.” The market researchers note that the actual number of subscriptions is likely to be lower due to the discrepancy between households and individuals but still, the numbers remain significant. For now at least, there is a significant number of people who maintain both legal subscriptions and parallel pirate setups. However, YouGov reports that almost a third of pirates (31%) say they will cancel official subscriptions during the next 12 months. There can be little doubt that the rise of so-called “living room” streaming can be attributed to word-of-mouth marketing, with people finding excitement in the range of content on offer for a negligible outlay. With that in mind, YouGov reports that six out of ten pirates say they intend to promote the availability of unauthorized services to both friends and family. If the growth that promotion fuels meets YouGov’s expectations, the numbers of people getting into the piracy scene could be significant. The market research company reports that 2.6 million non-pirates say they’re preparing to start using illegal streaming platforms in the future, with 400,000 predicting involvement within the next 90 days. And here’s the problem. YouGov reports that almost 90% of these non-pirates currently have a subscription to an official TV service but should they get involved, almost half are predicting that they will cancel them within 12 months of obtaining a pirate device. Over in the United States, it was recently reported that more than half of all millennials regularly use pirate streaming services to watch TV shows or movies. The numbers in the UK aren’t so high, but they remain significant nonetheless. According to YouGov, 18 to 34-year-olds account for 37% of pirate users, around 1.8 million people. The survey also touched on people’s attitudes towards unauthorized streaming, and it comes as no surprise that many feel the high prices of genuine products justifies the use of illicit alternatives. Bundled packaging means that people in the UK are often required to spend large amounts of money on channels they don’t even watch, so when cheaper options are made available, few have sympathy for what are perceived to be rich content providers.

The numbers in the UK aren’t so high, but they remain significant nonetheless. According to YouGov, 18 to 34-year-olds account for 37% of pirate users, around 1.8 million people. The survey also touched on people’s attitudes towards unauthorized streaming, and it comes as no surprise that many feel the high prices of genuine products justifies the use of illicit alternatives. Bundled packaging means that people in the UK are often required to spend large amounts of money on channels they don’t even watch, so when cheaper options are made available, few have sympathy for what are perceived to be rich content providers.
