An increasing number of Canadians are signing up for cheap, online pirated live TV channel subscriptions, which allow users to pay a small monthly fee to access to thousands of live TV channels from all over the world, offering everything from premium movie and sports channels to news and entertainment (via CBC News).
One of these third-party dealers, selling pirated TV channel subscriptions services, claims to offer 500 TV channels for a monthly $20 subscription, whereas another offers an even better deal i.e. over 3,000 channels for just $15 per month. “Why pay more when you get it all for less!!!!”, the service claims.
According to a recent study carried out by broadband equipment company Sandvine in Waterloo, 6.5% of North American households have access to such pirated subscriptions. The research monitored anonymous home internet traffic from thousands of Canadian and U.S. internet providers during the month of September.
