High Court approves Premier League crackdown on Kodi streaming piracy

Football fans who watch live matches for free via popular Kodi set-top boxes face a crackdown after the High Court approved a Premier League effort to shut down unlicensed streams online.

Mr Justice Arnold approved an order for Britain’s top four broadband providers BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media to block connections to the servers that host pirated streams of matches.

The Premier League is acting with the support of Sky and BT, which each pay millions for every match they broadcast and fear the popularity of Kodi boxes is eroding the value of their spending on exclusive rights.

Ofcom to end probe into Premier League football TV rights sale

Ofcom is set to scrap its two-year investigation of the Premier League’s multibillion-pound TV rights auction, a move which complainant Virgin Media says will lead to price hikes for football fans.

The media watchdog launched the probe in 2014 after Virgin Media lodged a complaint arguing that the Premier League should make all 380 matches live on TV.

Further to our previous post (http://www.satandpcguy.com/blog/2015/02/premier-league-uk-tv-rights-bids/)

Reports suggest that none of the seven Premier League TV rights packages were sold on Friday, in stark contrast to the last auction, when two went on the opening day.

The auction will now progress to a second round, probably on Tuesday or Wednesday, during which each bidder will be invited to up their offers.

Such a stalemate on Friday would indicate that not only was every package subject to more than one bid – and that those offers were very close – but also that bitter rivals Sky Sports and BT Sport were probably not the only broadcasters involved.
