The Premier League May Have the Names and Addresses of Illegal Streamers

Today marks the FA cup final. What many consider to be the greatest single footballing event on the annual calendar. As such, it is somewhat fitting that a football related news story has emerged that might have a number of illegal streamers rather concerned.

With pretty much all Premier League football matches being only available live on paid for channels (such as Sky Sports or BT Sport) watching the matches usually comes at a price. With an annual subscription usually being pretty expensive, this has led to many people looking towards illegal streaming alternatives.

In a report via The Express though, the people who provide these illegal streams might need to start getting worried as it is suggested that their name and even addresses may have been collected and have been passed onto the Premier League for legal action.

Kodi Premier League FootballIllegal Kodi Streamers may face strong legal action

The Premier League is clearly very much against illegal streaming of its games. If, for no other reason, than companies that can legally broadcast the matches pay a fortune for the rights. The current deal, which runs from 2016-2019 made over £5bn for the Permier League. With that, the broadcasters who paid for the rights want to make sure they get their moneys worth.

With a recent significant crackdown on illegal or pirates streaming on Kodi though, it appears that rather than going to the police, the details of those who are breaking the law might be going directly to the Premier League. If true, we may shortly see some individuals facing some colossal fines. Even potentially a custodial sentence. If I was them, I would be a bit nervous at this point.

What do you think? Will illegal streamers be worried by this news? In addition, do you think that this news might bring an end to it? – Let us know in the comments!

    Personally, I would rather see this premier league go under, out of business along with all the other companies who greedily take over all media, the ISP’s who receive money for service but do not render that service. It is high time these big companies be taken down. To much greed, to much for the rich and nothing FOR THE REST OF TIN THE WORLD.

But I know there are plenty of other things these big companies will readily steal and cheap me out of, like my ISP, Hughesnet, before them ATT. They both cheat and steal money, do not deliver the bandwidth I pay for.

    Stop sullying the name of Kodi!

    You are not the Daily Mail, these Streams are available in a multitude of ways, including using MS Windows and any browser available but you have to blame Kodi again. I really expect better from a ‘Tech site’.

    Please find a better way of adding comments too, this method is so outdated and people don’t want to leave their blooming email each time, this is why I never usually bother but when I see Kodi getting slated (yet again) by lazy journalists I’ll stand up for the devs. Kodi is a great piece of software given for free but being abused by crappy plugin makers.

      Yes… but the point is that Kodi may have been passing the information onto the premier league themselves.

      If you regularly check our posts in regards to Kodi, you will actually see we’re reasonably liberal about it, we’re just not blind to the elephant in the room either.
