    No idea how it all works,but, I bought a 30 quid Firestick from Amazon and I pay 80 quid a year for absolutely everything, all Scottish/english football, rugby, F1, films, series etc etc. Loads of foreign channels and hundreds of US channels, sports, etc.... works out as less than 10 quid a month. Very happy.
    It is also illegal though, so you have to balance the risk of getting caught into the cost. Unlikely to get caught, but they do make an example of the people they do. Your IP address also gives them a map to find you.

    So many people do it that the vast majority never get into bother, but the small % that do get absolutely fleeced

    I'm not sure it is illegal.

    It is. When we were in the EU however, there was arguably a loophole that meant you could watch say Greek coverage and bypass sky, that is now closed.
    If you have not paid the official distributor for access and you have managed to stream it, thst has been stolen. Examples being people who can get hibstv heartstv etc on sticks or even more so with sky sports etc.
    Typically, it's the people selling the modified devices and subscriptions who get charged, but it's not unheard of for individual users to be charged and fined too.

    Gutted, not able to travel up anywhere near as much as I'd like to get to games and it has been brilliant being able to watch the Hibs so regularly again, don't think I've missed a game since the league shutdown.

    Must've been a decent wee earner for the club too, it's a shame.
    Back to Hibs TV audio and avoiding scores for games on Alba it is.

    I would think a VPN sorts these issues out.

    True, but using a VPN for this purpose is definitely illegal in the UK. VPNs aren't illegal, but uses for certain purposes are.

    For clarity, I don't care what people chose to do, but it worries me when someone says "I use this thing, dont know how it works, but it's great". These people don't know that they could get into bother down the line.

    As if by magic. Daily express, apologies, but the police are cracking down on folk watching streaming services illegally.

    No worries.

    I thought it was only illegal to stream it (ie those you buy it from) - but not illegal to watch it. Hence that link thatís been put up, theyíll crack down on those who create the stream, and just shut it down so the rest canít watch it. The risk is in losing your money.
