The below quote begs the question, "Are they reputable if you can buy illegal services with them?" Iredto looked at 400 pirate IPTV services and found that 76% of those took Visa and Mastercard as payment. At least I can still use my Visa at K-Roger. Opps, scratch that.


The Irdeto anti-piracy team has revealed new data which show how pirate IPTV services rely on reputable payment processors to earn money. Payment services such as Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal are piracy enablers, Irdeto says, suggesting that media companies should threaten repercussions if the status quo remains.

I had no idea people were paying for services like these. This reminds me of whatever that shady Russian mp3 site was back in the day that "sold" albums at ridiculously low prices.

I had to find russian tv service for my parents. It was either pay $100+ to directTV for some US package my parents don't care about and like 5 russian channels or find some online IPTV service that provides lots of russian channels. They're pretty cheap, like $5/month or $10/month for 80channels and have ability to play 3 day channel history. It's not exactly clear when you sign up for them that they are not legal (I actually didn't realize they were not legal till after I signed up). The quality is so so (not the video quality, video quality is great, general service, outages, etc) But honestly, I'm not sure what else to do. If legit service came for like $30/month that was properly supported and had an easy interface I would instantly buy it (ESPECIALLY IF IT SUPPORTED ROKU). shrug.

I pirate it directly out of the air with an antenna. Ok, I don't, but I could.

They should go after the government for making it, banks for accepting it as deposits, and all the stores that accept it, because some was transferred for illegal goods and services. These people are enabling illegal activities. Silly cash

Facepalm.

By that definition cash is piracy enabler as well. Hell, let's ban the internet so there'll be no piracy.

Honestly they want to make others protect their shit?

Don't use your real credit card, just use a prepaid Visa/MasterCard. One Vanilla Visa is great, but one thing you can't make any payments overseas. Now that's where torrents come in and or my new fav Newsgroups :D

You know that thing about walking on the beach with Jesus, and during hard times, there was only one set of footprints? That's where newsgroups carried you, they've been here the whole time, our guardian angels

Well yes , LOL Newsgroups been around since the late 70's I believe, but I use torrents mostly. I Been using newsgroups currently and I do like that you get your maximum speed always unlike torrents, but new releases like for example Avengers Infinity War full blu ray disc is not on the newsgroups yet it's been on the torrent sites for 2 days. I always thought newsgroups 1st torrents 2nd. I still remember back in the 90's I used to watch my friend download so many SNES roms on the newsgroups sites, then put them on 1.44 floppies and play them back on the SNES using this http://videogamedevelopmentdevices.wikia.com/wiki/Super_Wild_Card
Pretty awesome :D

This would never be a problem if legacy tv services were not so damn expensive. There is a reason people will look toward piracy if they feel they are being ripped off by the big media companies.

nah, that's just an excuse... made by the same fuckers who spend $5 on starbucks coffee everyday.

The real reason is because they can, and it's easy.
