Australian TV Provider Shut Down Facebook Livestream

Australian TV Provider Shut Down Facebook Livestream

A few days ago, millions of Australians were watching the long awaited rematch between the Australian boxers Anthony Mundine and Danny Green. However, live stream was quite expensive, since it was streamed exclusively by the pay TV provider Foxtel for AUS$59.95. Of course, people were trying to find ways to watch the event for free. Indeed, lots of people eventually tuned into illegal live streams, including those made through Facebook.

This is quite a common thing for sports streams to appear on social media, but this particular boxing match has turned into a true piracy fest, with over 150,000 fans streaming a feed shown from the account of one Facebook user, who instantly became famous – and not only among the viewers, but also among the copyright owners. Foxtel tracked down the user and rang him up during the match – he even recorded the call and later shared it on YouTube.

During the conversation, the streamer refused to turn off Facebook streaming and didn’t seem to be impressed by the allegations. However, the pay TV provider was serious and decided to display the customer’s account numbers on the video streams in order to disable the associated feeds. Foxtel claimed that all illegal streamers would soon face legal action. However, Facebook users who arranged unauthorized broadcasts largely believe they have done nothing wrong.

At the same time, one of the Facebook streamers already anticipates significant legal bills and has launched a GoFundMe campaign to cover them. So far, he has already reached over 25% of the $10,000 goal.

Thanks to TorrentFreak for providing the source of the article.

Crash1 avatarThe strange thing is (and this has been PROVEN, several times, by Computer Game companies) if you make something AFFORDABLE then MORE PEOPLE will actually PAY for it. The ONLY reason so many people were pirating the stream is because they couldn't afford the high costs imposed by Foxtel ... I suppose that's what happens when you have a monopoly, set the price as high as possible for the short term profit, ignoring the hundreds of thousands of people who can't afford those prices. In this case, because they were greedy they lost over 150,000 viewers.

Several years ago, game company SIERRA released a game for AU$60, when most new games at the time were selling for AU$95+ (in other countries the price was also ~60% of new game cost). As a result the game sales exceeded their best pre-sale estimate by 90%+. In other words, by dropping the price they actually made a lot MORE money than they expected.

semphys avatarThanks for posting about this. Heard a little on the evening news next day, seems had a bit of everything. As far as the Streaming this article goes into better detail than I knew of from having little interest in the event after it's weird pre-fight build up.
For the event in itself, it was definitely worth a look with all the crazy antics in play. Details of the decision, the purse, and more are well worth searching

sharris16 avatarHere in OZ the cost of such entertainment services is nothing short of daylight robbery. The only solution is to take what you can when you can & deny those [email protected] every red cent you can.

BundyBandit0 avatarWasn't hard at all to track him down, he used his actual FB account. It could have all been avoided if the dingus quickly set up a fake FB account (pre-fight) and streamed thru that. He lasted 5 rounds i think it was? Then they shut him down. Thankfully and luckily, a mate put up another stream from round 8 onwards, so i only missed 2 rounds and got to see the rest of the biff'o. Was a decent fight too! Boxer Vs Fighter, and went the whole 10 rounds.
