    Since I first heard about the dragon box I considered it being a joke!

    But it looks like Netflix and likes takes it VERY seriously so I guess it can actually stream completely free!

    Isn't every computer a "pirate box to download Internet Content"? Maybe they should sue all the computer makers... :rofl:

    I used to use KODI [ex XBMC] for some time in Debian, but I got tired of it. It's easier to just browse to the content you want to play or download. I guess it's more for those "TV types", as you can set it up to work with a remote. I OTOH hate TV, with passion. :wink:

    Edit: Oh, btw. this little box doesn't work that good, actually. You have to tinker with KODI and various plugins a lot to keep it working "as advertised".

    So I really don't understand all the fuss. :shrug:

    Maybe their profits are down from the shitty shows/movies they've been producing for the last 10+ years and need to desperately make profit somewhere :/. God, now days content sucks :(

    ok you dopes, stop shitting on this thread. It's totally interesting in that 'facilitating' may become a serious hot-button legal issue in the very near future

    'Defendants sell illegal access to Plaintiffs'
    ... I've always thought future currency would be simply the quality of your information... like dicey guys whispering; 'hey man, I got 8tb of calculus...' hahaha

    I've been aware of boxes like this but haven't used one- thank you @SineWave for your review, figured it was sort of a mess like that. And to your final question? ...probably trying to get ahead of what is definitely a fast-impending curve

    I bought an Android box just before Xmas on eBay. Didn't purchase it for streaming, just for checking emails and general stuff. No mention of it having Kodi installed, boot it up and one of the only apps installed is called TV Centre. Which is just a version of Kodi with every add on imaginable already installed. So I think savvy box producers have been scared by eBay removing products and the possibility that there's some lawsuits ahead.

    yep, i read about in that summer, just ship with a manual printed and the download link for Kodi and they cant you anything.

    they punish because it was shipped with a software which is not legal in many countries.
    similar to ship a computer with kali(former backtrack) installed.

    Sure. Even if they've taken vows of poverty, shows cost money to make.
    The less money they make, the less they have to spend on shows. Unless rich parents/trust funds.
    Is one of the reasons why.
    *not preaching, I pirate & ... do other bad stuff. I got no scruples :)

    Once again, Marx told us about those points a century ago :
    -market saturation
    -profit margin RATE loss (RATE word is very important, because profit are still strong for some companies. But margin on each product is going down)

    Now you understand why worldwide industry (not only media) is going down : too many companies making almost the same thing AND profit margin down on each product/copy

    That's called the end of capitalism. Or may be the beginning of another "ppl reduction" to "solve" another "economical crisis"...

    People will reduce themselves, by going to McDonald's and the likes for food, because of necessity, or stupidity, or laziness to make food themselves. :wink:

    Indeed, those guys are used to some hefty profit margins from the 90s and 00s, but now the profit margins are getting slimmer and all they can do is sue everybody and make cheap enough shows. It shows. :wink: The shows that interest me are getting more and more rare. They cater to the lowest denominator - an idiot, to get the most viewing rate. :sad:

    Now I'm off to make a song called "Burn you all capitalist bastards at a stake". :rofl:

    We should create a streaming service for all the Audiosex members and their works.
    I have a hard time finishing arrangements but I can code the infrastructure.
    I have Apple Music but fnck Apple Music.

    You either exist to be a part of the system or you exist to take the system apart.

    there's not really much there, there... just too optically ugly anymore suing teens using granny's connection for downloading
    "dragonballs" etc. , so they go after the "facilitators" to satisfy their indignation at the injustice of helping the
    "lowest common denominator" access their lcd content... hey gotta blame somebody rite?

    same reason guys from tpb did time in the cooler...

    and just as always, it didn't change a thing.. :no:

    Unlike food, shelter & basic medical care, quality HD entertainment is a basic human right.
