Premier League Wins New Stream Blocking Injunction

Premier League Wins New Stream Blocking Injunction

The High Court has issued a 'blocking order' that will cut off online streams for people who are illegally watching Premier League football matches.

It comes after the Premier League was awarded a High Court blocking order for the forthcoming 2017-18 season.

Dubbed the 'biggest ever crackdown' on illegal streaming, the order will help the league intensify its crackdown on the illicit use of pre-loaded Kodi boxes.

“This blocking order is a game-changer in our efforts to tackle the supply and use of illicit streams of our content,” said Premier League Director of Legal Services, Kevin Plumb.

“It will allow us to quickly and effectively block and disrupt the illegal broadcast of Premier League football via any means, including so called ‘pre-loaded Kodi boxes’.”

Although the details of the new injunction are yet to be published by the High Court, the EPL indicates that the injunction is very similar to the one obtained previously, which targets overseas servers streaming Premier League matches into the UK.

In the 2016-17 season the Premier League obtained a similar order for the last two months of the season.

The court order allowed Premier League bosses to blanket block internet servers.

Around 5,000 server IP addresses were blocked as a result.
