High Court ordered BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin to block Premier League stream servers

    Today the High Court apparently ordered Britain’s top four broadband providers BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media to block connections to the servers that host pirated streams of Premier League matches.

    See http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business...oves-premier-league-crackdown-kodi-streaming/

    I presume the order is in relation to IPTV rather than sat.

    Given the crackdown on the retail of fully loaded Kodi boxes is of questionable consequence to anybody who wants one, as long as they have some technical ability or mail order from abroad, regarding today's ruling, I wonder:

    1) whether other broadband providers (e.g. Origin) will carry on as usual?
    2) whether servers that stream other contents (movies, shows, live or recorded) also always streamed Premier League matches, resulting in those media also becoming seriously restricted by these 4 broadband providers?
    3) if vpn is used how can a broadband provider detect the use of and therefore block a server?

    Live stuff maybe, on demand stuff no. They will have their bots ready at 3pm Saturday, but they don't know when you will watch movies/TV shows. As for vpn, at the moment they will hit the non vpn users first. But think about it if the premier league are forcing Providers to do this, maybe their not that bothered what you do as long as you pay your bills, after all skly/bt don't have 3pm kick offs. And I if the provider gets too heavy handed end users will go to smaller providers who are not forced to do stuff, counter productive for the big boys

    it was only a matter of time before xbmc/kodi got out of hand as other comments said it was just a good thing then people started to be stupid by saying stuff like fully loaded boxes free s/y sports movies instead of learning yourself about installing repo,s its been installed for you and now its nearly killed off kodi

    Exactly, it makes me angry when you see people selling builds or mods that are free on the net!

    If they get money for something you can get for free, nothing will stop them from selling it as long as they get buyers. People will still continue on buying it.

    Its all out there you just have to look for it, not rocket science.
    This just smacks of "big brother is watching you", but not difficult to work around.

    Hi new to the site, but not the problem, ever since file sharing began the industry has done everything it can to close the avenue off, and every time they close the door.................. another one opens, simple fact is if media industry was not so greedy and priced everything within reach of everyone then more people would be happy to pay, it drives me crazy every time "THEY" upgrade their hardware they hike up the cost, happened with HD, 3D and now 4K, fact is these formats are part of the norm and as such should be out there at no extra cost as "THEY SHOULD" be provided as standard as it helps them sell their product, i wish there was more than one satellite provider and more cable suppliers as this would force Sky and Virgin into bringing their product into a more realistic price range and not over £100 a month to cover all formats to the viewer.
