The scourge of IPTV Pirata continues to plague Europe and the World, but faces particularly harsh persecution in the Old Continent. In France, the authorities took strong measures that resulted in the banning of several large platforms.
As in the neighboring nation of Spain, France follows suit and, according to the Lutte Association contre la Piraterie Audiovisuelle (ALPA), one of the largest operations in history to combat streaming illegal use of TV channels.
France blocked the main Pirate IPTV platforms
The action was announced by the aforementioned group (ALPA), which, Center national du cinéma et de l'image animée (CNC), have now blocked, by court order, eight large platforms operating in France and beyond its borders.
The case reached the courts in mid-December, and is now taking effect. All French operators are therefore required to judicial obligation to block – prevent user access – to the various pirated IPTV platforms operating in the country.
Among the services that illegally distributed paid channels are iptv-teli.com, king365-tv.com, king365-tv.cf, king365tv.com, ddnc.us, platinumiptv.pro, premium-itv.com, primeplus. tv, xtream.ws, and tvservice.pro. Among them, they had millions of users.
Illegal streaming of films and series persists worldwide
In view of this, some portals were quick to open new domains, thus feinting the blockade by the operators. In fact, above we see the promotional pricing plans for one of the Pirate IPTV platforms, teli.iptv.fr, which even offers two days of free use and three subscription modalities. From € 18.99 for three months, € 42.99 per year, or € 28.99 for six months.
This platform is proud to offer access to more than 10,000 online television channels, as well as a gallery of films and series of the main services such as Netflix, AMC, HBO, Apple TV, with more content coming to it.
In view of this subterfuge, ALPA and CNC promise to be vigilant, looking for and denouncing the new domains used by these services so that operators can block them. It is, from here, the game of cat and mouse.
Like several other Pirate IPTV services, the targeted platforms provided inexpensive access to paid content, with hundreds of channels premium, as well as access to online movies and series, none of which operate legally.
It should also be noted that several of the Pirate IPTV services were already installed, or rather, configured, in Android boxes that the user purchased. The software was programmed to give access to the contents by means of a cheap subscription compared to the legal alternatives.
IPTV platforms continue to feign authorities and operators
In UK a similar method is implemented by operators such as MEO, NOS and Vodafone with the main portals being blocked. However, these barriers do not prevent interested parties from using a virtual private network, commonly called VPN.
It can also be said that the effort to combat pirated IPTV is led by several groups and audiovisual associations, as well as those responsible for the sports channels and paid content that have their revenue sources called into question.
Finally, in France, the ALPA group and its allies will carry out similar actions against other illegal IPTV services. The fight will be long and aims to wear down the user, a strategy already made known by 4gnews.
The ALPA communiqué is available online and can be consulted – in PDF format.
