BT and Sky Kodi box crackdown refuse to meet fans half way
BT and SKY have had a good year in KODI BOX Crackdown.
- Working with Fact (Federation Against Copyright Theft) to misuse privacy right and attack users in their own home as they walk in to users home at 6 am knocking on the door with a hand delivered letter for a cease and desist letters
- Winning Court Cases for selling KODI Boxes
- Google tries to make Kodi harder to search for, despite program being legal
- Sky Blocks Pirate Sites With Traffic Analysis and Google Cloud
- Google Boots Open Source Anti-Censorship Tool From Chrome Store
- Google Adds ‘Kodi’ to Autocomplete Piracy Filter
- Making new LAW with UK Government against KODI BOXES
- Jail Sentence for Married Couples for Selling KODI BOXES
- New Law to be enforced on KODI Users
Sky and BT are now setting comfortably on a big hill that they are winning the war against KODI BOXES.
When young, there was no question about whether we’d be able to watch the sporting events for example the Ashes. ‘Turn on the Telly' thats it. With time, we all needed a Sky subscription to watch most of the sports. Over Time family pay from as little as £10 a month and increased over time to over £150 a month. Excluding Broadband fees.
You would have though that both Sky and BT, would be now working in making it cheaper for the average homes, instead they brought in, Pay Per View for special events now, pushing the price for monthly events for minimum £20 a month. Despite the Pay per very event in the UK is still cheaper then other countries, for example in the USA Pay per very can rise up to $100 dollars per event depending on the event, this still should be counted as extortion from the house hold user.
All this is just the tips of a very big ICE BERG of news.
In 2017 and 2018 SKY and BT started sending cease and desist letters and being hand delivered to suspected developers of Kodi add-ons. Instead of putting all this effort into intimidating developers, these content providers would be better served by focusing their attention on understanding consumer needs and meeting them half way.
Who knows what will happen next, we might get a police man walking to our living room 4 times a day making sure we payed again for today TV Time,ok I am joking on that, but who knows right?
Seriously speaking, I am worried on what will be next, and dont you wish that they should stop wasting their money on tackling this issue and perhaps reduce their monthly fees instead.
