I'm interested to know who you think are providing the streams?
A lot of people have gone down the kodi box route as there is no other way to watch their team on a Saturday at 3pm, others do it to avoid paying sky and some as they simply don't like paying. If there was a way I could get any match, movie or boxset then I would consider paying for it. Until then I won't to be honest.
If you are promoted this year then you will not be able to watch you at 3pm unless you stream.
They block it already. ''Stream not available' or equivalent.

I will be able to watch the Albion as I will either be at the game, or if I can't make it, and the game is on Sky or BT then I'll watch it. If it's not being broadcast, I'll listen to the radio commentary. I'm really not minded to get a kodi box to watch streamed content, and I fully agree the costs of sky are too high, for now I can afford it, who knows what will happen in the future when prices go up again. With sky viewing figures apparently on the decline, they'll tell us it's partly due to illegal streaming, the more people watch it on streaming devices, the more sky will probably justify price increases.
If you are away and it's a 3pm kick off it's impossible to watch unless you are there.
Only one of those links is about someone providing streams and he was hardly into organised crime. Considering you can buy a kodi box for £20 and put an add-on in about five minutes I fail to see why organised criminals would get involved. The biggest sellers of these boxes are on eBay and Amazon and are registered businesses. A man I know who is very much into the supply etc of these boxes is about sixty years old and is as far removed from an organised criminal as you could imagine. The only reason kodi is getting all these headlines now is because it is in the TV companies interest to do so and a lot are linked to papers.
Fair points about the kodi, it certainly seems like something that has got out of control, and into the hands of anyone who cares a bit. I still don't know how a live stream from a foreign country can be accessed, someone, somewhere, is providing access to the feed.
