Users of the TV channel service Kodi are being blocked from viewing certain streams amid a major clampdown of the view on-demand service.

Although Kodi is not illegal, it is used by people to view content that isn’t necessarily obtained legally prompting a number of streams to be shut down, according to the Birmingham Mail.

FACT chief executive, Kieron Sharp said: "This is not a grey area and that anyone using a device to illegally access film, TV, or sports, is breaking the law.

"Recent rulings have clarified that selling a device pre-configured to access copyrighted material is illegal and that consumers watching content via these devices without a legitimate subscription are also breaking the law.

"These add-ons have made it incredibly easy for consumers to access illegal content via the Kodi platform.

"This was their principal function and it's a good step to see them shutting down in the face of perfectly valid legal pressure.

"We will continue to work with The Premier League, Sky, BT Sport, Virgin Media and the film industry to crack down on these illegal streams."

According to Cornwall Live the following streams are still available to view:
  • UK Turk's Playlists
  • 1Channel and SALTS have been updated and now in a new repository
  • Zen has been updated and renamed
  • Noobs and Nerds Repo is back with an alternative URL
  • Specto Fork
  • BoB Unrestricted add-on is back and working with an alternative URL
  • Skynet
  • Wolf Pack
  • Openload Movies
  • Flixnet
  • Supremacy
  • Genesis Reborn

I don't believe this is the case at all.

Having bid such silly prices for sports televising rights they are practically forced to price them as a premium product.

ITV have started pay per view on the boxing next weekend. I think it's priced at £16.95 (that's streaming via the website)

It's that sort of price that makes people look elsewhere, the pub, online, "the dark web" etc.

Pricing has little to do with it, unless the price is free, people will steal it. Can't remember OnDigital and ITV digital being particularly expensive, but people still wanted it for nothing and drove them out of business.

I hear people complaining that everything was great before Sky, they could watch free football and films on BBC and ITV, but they have faulty memories, as before Sky was around there was next to no Football on TV, one match a week if you were very lucky and the only films you'd see outside of video rentals and cinema were three or four year old ones on TV.

They've paid a lot of money for these rights as PaulR says above and have to charge a premium for them, strange that it's the very competition which was insisted on by the government which has caused the rise in prices.

I believe they vastly overcharge, and if people were not able to circument their charges via streamin or whatever, they would charge even more.
They are responsible for footballers being paid 200 more times than a nurse, and then expect the public who want to watch their team pay for their folly.
I say didydums to them all and to all who can watch without paying , good luck to them

$ky and the Premier league had this absolutely stupid policy of continually uping the amount of money paid because it was an awesome figure to print in the papers and be reported on TV, the English Premier league is not that great, the money now is just f#*king stupid, its came back to bite $ly who where still renewing 3 year deals for crazy money even when they had NO other bidders, right round them I say

Whatever happened to "If you can't afford it, don't have it?", don't get me wrong, I know lots of people who stream matches on phones and tablets, it's just the silly justification used for what is theft, it's the companies' fault, I can't afford this luxury item, so I'm going to steal it, isn't that the argument looters and shoplifters use?

Why don't these so called fans actually go and support their team (I appreciate that for some sellout teams this may be difficult), but many premier league grounds are only two thirds full and Championship grounds are regularly two thirds full, lots of space for them and often with heavily discounted tickets. My team Reading were in the playoff final this year, we never reached capacity during the season, despite bargain basement tickets being available for most matches, but amazing how all of these diehard fans came out of the woodwork, whinging because the season ticket holders and high points earners had first dibs on the Wembley tickets.

PS. When were there no other bidders for Premier league packages?

It pretty much still is at the grounds, well at least in the championship and down, don't think I'd fancy paying the top Premier league season ticket prices though, mines £235 per year.:)

Of course, if people want to watch cheap football matches, visit your local amateur clubs, where real people you can talk to play the games in small fields where you can see everything, and they don't act like self-entitled pricks because they can kick a ball about... :)

Man works to cover the cost of subscription, in keeping with the phrase.
