Kodi Premier League football streams injunction signals major change in anti-piracy tactics

The Premier League has obtained an injunction enabling it to work hand-in-hand with UK internet service providers (ISPs) to block illegal streams fed to Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) boxes running Kodi, in real time.

It covers all of the current Premier League season’s remaining fixtures, running from 18 March 2017 to 22 May 2017.

If the measures prove successful, the Premier League will apply for a new injunction covering the 2017/18 season.

The move represents a major change in the way content blocking works.
