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

ohh.. then i put the iptv media player on restaurant, mamak, office and retail shop is not a problem. the only thing is gov will go catch the streaming server or host. what if the host in china, taiwan and hongkong ? gov will take place go there catch them ?

i was mention IPTV media player receiver, which is a receiver. not a software to be install in pc. is a stand alone or set-top-box receiver.

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.
