You can all thank crackersa. He was the one that reported them to the Internet sherrif.

People should continue using UntoTelly. A really cheap and effective service that does the same thing.

Realistically, who else would? I mean they are the only ones standing to lose. All the ISPs are pushing streaming as an alternative to torrents so the only one left is MC (and maybe whatever DMCA org there is here).

Are you serious?

What a nut, these services needs exposure in SA to allow its development and feasibility, it is only way to identify it as a viable solution in order to relax the law on these matters.

Vidi's a more direct competitor and certainly has more to lose than Multichoice from the service.

Or it could just be some random a-hole that doesn't like to see other people have nice things.

Vidi is relatively new from what I gather and doesn't really have the clout of MC.

So are they prepared to reimburse anyone who signed up for Netflix/Hulu because of this? I doubt there would be too many people considering the short time frame, but I'm sure there must be a couple.

While I don't begrudge them for closing it, I have to wonder whether this would have ever gone anywhere in court. What exactly is illegal about it again?
