DStv going after IPTV operators and other pirates

SA's sport stars make their money playing overseas anyway. Then they play for the Bokke when their contracted international club schedule allows them too.

Us using IPTV does not affect their paychecks at all.
I don't even know what you trying to say.
Does the Springboks get paid by SARU? From what money?
So all the local provincial teams only have useless players? As the rest play overseas? Nobody get paid millions for Playing for the Bulls, Stormers. Sharks etc?

Yes if everyone uses IPTV, their will be no more money, no more sport and no more iptv. Great argument.

Nonsense. This has been said for years and years about movies and TV shows...the "pirating" still goes on and the shows and movies still make billions.

Not "everyone" will ever use IPTV...the % of people that do use it, are tech savvy and miniscule in comparison to those that pay for schit like DSTV etc.

IPTV viewing has zero tangible impact on the huge advertising and broadcasting contracts.

Springboks are paid by SARU...from money that SARU makes on investments as well as huge sponsorship deals. MTN and Nike pay their salaries.

Also:


SARU is close to a deal for a $75 million investment from Ackerley Sports Group.

SARU will be the majority owner of the new entity, while ASG holds a roughly 20% stake. The post-money valuation on the deal is $375 million.

In 2022, SARU posted revenue of 1.54 billion rand ($82 million in current exchange rates).

They're not struggling and IPTV is not even a blip on their radar.

This whole known-abuse type IPTV use is like gang rape; "others are doing it so why shouldn't I?" - BS, you're helping to destabilise fair market trade. In a way that makes you a commie :cautious:

I'm not doing it because other's are doing it, I'm doing it because their are no fair market. The lack of competition in the sports broadcasting market has led to an unfair monopoly by a single supplier.

Yes, the market is unfair. Yes, someone else banging my wife is also unfair but doesn't mean I can go shoot him.
Geo-rules aside ('cos we all know they're equally BS) , why not subscribe to legit services in the UK etc.?

And quite a few here are encouraging others. Think it makes them feel better about themselves, who knows..

Nah.
Doubtful it isn't a lot more common knowledge these days, and how about the many who have now given up DStv Premium, do they just sit around saying they'll do without?

Would you subscribe to DSTV if it took 10% of your after-tax paychecque?

"Unfair" is putting it mildly. It's simple economics. MC priced themselves out of the market through sheer greed. We've argued this before, I even laid out numbers.

F*** MC. IPTV for the win.

"many" ? Look at the BIG picture. Drop in the bucket.

I think your virtue signalling makes you feel better...or superior perhaps? Who knows....
