Kodi does wonders for those that don’t want to pay for TV, movie, or music streaming services such as Hulu, Netflix, Sling TV as it makes it easy to watch practically every show for free by installing addons to the program. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are sending out letters to those over in the UK when they detect that a broadband connection has been used to watch pirated shows or movies.
Major ISPs in England such as BT, Sky, TalkTalk, and Virgin Media are the ones sending out the first batch of letters which started back on Tuesday, January 17th. These companies are so far targeting those that are illegally downloading shows, movies, apps, and software first and it’s nothing to freak out about as no one is being charged with any sort of fine. It’s not clear as to what will happen if the letters are ignored or if more will be sent out to the same resident continuously downloading media, but for the time being, it might be smart to slow down on the illegal downloads.
Internet Service Providers are sending these letters out to people who have been watching pirated shows or movies. The letter reads:
Get it Right is a government-backed campaign acting for copyright owners who think their content’s been shared without their permission.
It looks like someone has been using your broadband to share copyrighted material (that means things like music, films, sport or books).
And as your broadband provider, we have to let you know when this happens.
If you’re over in the UK and using Kodi, have you received any letters from your ISP yet? What do you guys think about how this is being handled by ISPs?
