Hi guys,


IPtv, and discovering ways to watch IPtv is a huge passion of mine. 


Just an odd thought to turn it into a business opportunity, as I know how to access a wide range of International channels, as legal as one can get, so they are stable as long as the Internet line is stable. 


They are from the provider, not some pirated flakey CDN network 


Only ones who may complain, are the broadcasters, but if it's done privately, and it's only done, so that immigrants are in touch with their culture, and not flaunted, I think it will be fine.

I am able to access channels, from the UK, to the USA, to South Africa, and beyond..




I have the experience, to start something like this up, I just want to know if it's worthwhile, and I'd need to get capital to import Android IPTV type dongles, from China..




What do you guys think?

So you want to run a business based on illegally providing content?

As excited as you seem, that sounds like an incredibly crazy idea. What happens when you get your first cease and desist order? What happens to your customers (assuming you're going to charge them) when the service stop working?

All depends on the nature..


I'd never sell anything that I know would stop working, so that's why I'm considering it....

As for illegally providing content goes, the content is directly from the provider, from their OnDemand services, so from that point of view, it's legal, I'd never charge or make money from some unreliable source, regardless if the content was good or not.

I'm just eagerly awaiting the outcome of this Global Mode courtcase, as this may explain what I want to do in a clearer light.
