IPTV service other than astro/TM provide is illegal. The one that media reports many days ago offers pornography channel.

There's another service in the market, using card sharing function. Still need to use astro dish to receive channel, and use other decoder. They does not offer pornography channel and it's verified legal by MCMC

Yes, what more if using astro dish lol.

My neigbourhood almost all got astro dish outside but go to their house no astro at all. And they have use it for more than 2 years
1 man came and offered 'Free' Astro all channel. Just need to buy their own decoder and need internet connection.
When I tried to trace back where he's from, its just a chained-link from 1 man to another. Agent la supplier la.
But then again, it works so who cares. Pay RM30 got all channel including astro best on weekend.

Dunno what will happen if Astro guy come check and find out.

As long as these "IPTV Service" do not pay a single cent to these TV channels to have the rights, then it is illegal. IPTV or Cable TV have similar business principles. Astro has to pay a premium to HBO just to ensure HBO Movies can be part of Astro packages. In return, subscribers pay their monthly fee to cover their licensing fee. No different from Unifi offering their IPTV service. Some are free, some are not. Where it isn't, TM is paying those channels to have broadcasting rights.

So, the question is, those 3rd party company that provide IPTV service, are they legitimate? Afterall, your question is about legal or illegal right? You may be paying for this IPTV service. But are they paying for the rights? End users normally knows but choose to ignore it as long as it benefits them.

Torrent itself is not illegal, but the files inside may legal or may illegal.

Many free games developers and Linux distribution developers use torrent as one of the ways to distribute their free products, are those torrents they distribute illegal also?

It doesn't have to be channel from Astro. Example, if they stream TV channel from TVB or HBO Asia (from Indo/Thai/Sing), it would still be illegal because they do it without the permission of content provider of the said channels.

Imagine this:

You have a wifi access with 10mbps Internet speed that you paid for it every month. You willing to spend around RM200 because you love to have all that bandwidth for yourself.

Suppose a hacker manage to hack into your wifi and use your 10mbps Internet line to make money for himself by selling YOUR Internet access to someone else for cheaper price (maybe RM10 per client @ 512kbps per month).

Don't you think what the hacker does is illegal? Same logic applies with iptv with the supposedly 'free' tv channel.

Of course some channels are meant to be stream free to iptv (1Malaysia TV for example). But as far as I know, premium channels like HBO or TVB does not.

Confirmed, cos who is going to settle with all those legality? What if the contents are reallllly sensitive? (Having YouTube alone is sufficient to make many countries headache, let alone many internet video programs from China or other coutries.)
Which authority or who will be responsible?
If the issue is really severe, Malaysia ISP is most likely to activate filtering IP policy. Then Malaysia will be like in China unable to connect to Facebook, Youtube and many other international website without the use of VPN services.

Relax bro, Malaysia belum take action yet. But I am not surprise if they are going to take action one day. The latest debate between the new stupid internet policy is always apply for the purpose of controling Malaysia news and media to not reach any further audience to keep things under their HANDs to control.


Added on October 15, 2012, 4:41 pmBtw, I heard Maxis Fiber Optic service in the TnC does not allow torrent, if torrent then they really will sent you warning letter geh.

Cos they want to control everything, of cos IPTV is illegal lor.
Moreover if it is legal then you wont be seeing we only have Astro while not having other big satelite tv service provider liow. xD
Lol, so harsh.
Confirmed, cos who is going to settle with all those legality? What if the contents are reallllly sensitive? (Having YouTube alone is sufficient to make many countries headache, let alone many internet video programs from China or other coutries.)
Which authority or who will be responsible?
If the issue is really severe, Malaysia ISP is most likely to activate filtering IP policy. Then Malaysia will be like in China unable to connect to Facebook, Youtube and many other international website without the use of VPN services.
Relax bro, Malaysia belum take action yet. But I am not surprise if they are going to take action one day. The latest debate between the new stupid internet policy is always apply for the purpose of controling Malaysia news and media to not reach any further audience to keep things under their HANDs to control.


Added on October 15, 2012, 4:41 pmBtw, I heard Maxis Fiber Optic service in the TnC does not allow torrent, if torrent then they really will sent you warning letter geh.

But if you pandai pandai, then still got methods to avoid geh. tongue.gif

maxis send u a warning letter so what ? maxis take action to catch u ? i don't think so.


in the end pandai pandai still a good way.

So here is the conclusion:

IPTV can watch. However the content itself might be illegally taken from other paid service.

Police will go after the source of the IPTV provider, shut down server that stream the show, and in the app that you use to watch IPTV will not work anymore.

Here is the thing let me say this

I watch Hulu and BBC but I am subscribing to a VPN Service which fools Hulu and BBC iPlayer thinking that I am from US/UK

Is it legal ? - Well I am watching content from Hulu , they have gotten rights to publish their content. Its their problem and not mine. However some may argue that is illegal because I am watching these content out of United States/UK . It falls in the grey area anyway.

Let me put it this way

Assume that there are two of us . You are the content provider , in other words you steal content from other services (say CNN , but you did not get the rights , instead you put a camera in front of your TV which is connected to ASTRO and stream it across internet"). Now suppose I happen to find your stream and I continue to watching it

As far as the legal side is concern , they are not interested in coming after you (aka the people who watch these streams). They would go after the content provider aka the person who hosts it

UniFi uses IPTV decoder as well and its legal , simple as that

If your IPTV decoder is something like Durian HD , its not. If you are using it for commercial purposes , you are just seeking for trouble.

Usually licensing authority won't go so far to sue an individual for watching illegal tv programs.

But if you are business and used it for commercial purpose, then it is a different case we are talking about. Authority probably will sue you for abusing the licensing.

Lol, personal use probably won't be sue cos they don't want to waste so much time and money while they can't afford to pay the fine too.

Commercial, they have money for business then sue maybe can get compensate.

But if in really bad times, to sue individual is still possible as they do have the right in doing it.

At the moment: Nope.
In the future: Maybe, depends on what house I am living.

If living in a landed property with big compound, maybe can have one of those big dish geh. brows.gif
(Since the story that I heard from my friend is that the dish is quite big, so most of the peoples from his Kampung actually hide it behind the house compound area where it is not easily spotted. whistling.gif)

illegal or not, depend what iptv you are playing

the big one like Astro or TMnet one sure is not illegal unless you want to use it for commercial purpose, like what u say for restaurant, you are required to get a public performance license, then only you consider not illegal, but if just play at home, u already pay the bill for the rights for home used only for Astro or TMnet

Foreign IPTV is illegal because not filtered/censored by gov. Basically even the net and youtube is illegal because not filtered by gov. Yeah Communist Malaya sucks.
