It hurt my eyes, Im the worst on this planet at web design and i could do better on wordpress with my eyes closed.
Im unsure if they expect people to take their site seriously. Im also surprised it doesn't have glowing writing and sparkly stuff like these sites usually do.

 

A fitting name would definitely be "Dial up TV"

There are a few selling the same thing. This guy is trying to claim the high moral ground too. Doesnt cut it.

He won't last long. He is attracting far too much attention.

Selling android stb = Legal

 

Selling it with Kodi install =legal

 

The importer customizing it with addons, that are clearly using illegal streamed sources = trouble

 

blatently advertising the fact=more trouble

 

i expect it will end in a seller raid and confiscation of devices along with a courtcase as a warning to others.

Well it looks like the freeview add-on these guys/box sellers were using has now been disabled and removed.

 

Wonder if they are filtering that out of their facebook feeds now.

I asked them on Facebook why they are selling a $30 STB with kodi for $250-$499 , that message seemed to go missing as well.

 

as for the Freeview addon well that's what happens when idiots try to make a buck off dodgy kodi installs. Thanks NZ herald for publicising it.

 

The source site made changes to their stream authorization.

 

I have it working still though

This thread remind me of an old Musical movie named Bye Bye Birdie (1963). To be honest that movie wasn't any good but Ann-Margret, she was... she was extremely pretty. She was.... Sorry, I can't find any suitable words that fits her beauty.

Slighty, just a little bit, eensie-weensie off-topic there.

Also OT but just curious: Was that weird post from the now-inactive user just a bot test looking for spam opportunities?

"While Kodi itself is a neutral platform, millions of people use third-party add-ons to turn it into the ultimate pirate machine"

Surely add-ons could also be considered neutral. They are purely a means to an end also.
The content is not their own. Its no different that a Chrome browser that has the ability to link to pirated content.
Although its considered 'promoting' piracy (a broad statement as that could also be used for the internet in general) The fight should remain against the actual people housing the content?
