Pirated Content is Cheap for a Reason
Watch the video series on the risks of pirated content.
People that create television and film content aim to produce the best possible experience for their audience. Sometimes the key to success is an amazing script; sometimes it’s brilliant acting, or unbelievable special effects. Whatever the crucial ingredient, it’s going to cost, because greatness doesn’t come cheap.
When you buy a streaming device that provides unlimited free content, or when you subscribe to an obscure streaming service that promises thousands of channels for a ridiculously low rate, you’re most likely doing business with criminals.
When you buy content from a legitimate provider, part of what you pay for is reliable, consistent, quality service. You don’t get that when you buy from pirates.
Thinking about viewing free or unusually cheap movies, TV or sports content? You should know that the content is probably pirated and shared without permission.
