A Million Piracy-Enabled Kodi Boxes Sold in U.K. Show Pirates Not Yet Sunk (TechRadar)


Kodi is a fantastic piece of open-source software for streaming content that you own onto a TV, but its versatility has lead to a huge market for people to modify it to stream content illegally.

Just how massive a market has been created has been revealed recently by a new report by the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) which claims that over a million of the piracy-enabled boxes have been sold in the UK over the past two years.

These boxes are loaded full of piracy-enabling add-ons that are installed on top of the Kodi software before being sold on to consumers (usually via social media). The illegal modification can occur either before or after the boxes are imported into the country.
