I read this yesterday, I reckon we've got a year before all 'piracy' Slav sites etc are crushed.

Do you think the isps are secretly bricking it? Why would we need super fast broadband if we can't illegally stream and download. Just a straw poll at my place of work shows around 80% of staff with at least an android box as a form of obtaining pirated material.
I wouldn't be so inclined to pay my £36 for unlimited BT infinity 2 and would happily get by with DSL if all sites were closed down. I pay for Amazon prime which recommends 3.5mb for hd streaming.

They need to offer cheaper legal alternatives, once you have used Amazon / Netflix for a month you've seen everything you want and barring Grand tour and vikings to keep you coming back you begin to feel short changed especially when you fire up your kodi build on your Amazon stick and see what's available.

No one tells you how difficult it can be to find decent streams for football matches so it's not all it's cracked up to be but with sky packages getting up towards £90 once all your welcome bonuses finish there are a hell of a lot of kodi enabled boxes and pcs out in the wild.

So you can do it legally, perhaps.

Torrenting IMHO is old hat and those who use illegal streaming services are just as likely to subscribe to the legal streaming services.

I have Netflix, Amazon Prime and Now TV, yet also have Kodi as a back up if I'm really desperate to see something. Ironically I also use Kodi to subscribe to a legal IPTV service, Zattoo Swizerland. (This is how I get my French tv caps for here).
