    Hi I have video broadcasting page on FB I tried to broadcast Live event (sport manly ) and the page were quiet success ,
    Now I'm thinking to making money from that page by selling IPTV subscription to it member (e.g as premium service ) .
    and I'm thinking about move foreword EU countries (you know most ppl their have payment tools CC etc ) ,
    but I'm afraid that my activity could be close very fast (I'm not EU resident btw) , so how illegal selling IPTV on EU countries and how much hard it is .
    btw I'm thinking about big scale of subscribers (100~300 members as start ) . so what you think .

    OK I ask how fare illegal it is , I means if I have ~100 costumers how much any authority will put effort to catch me or any of my clients . or at least how much time I have before they discover it .

    Depends on so many variables, including your location/nationality. If you're a local in Kazakhstan, who will give a shit and you can probably bribe your ass out of jail time. If you're in the UK on the other hand...
    Considering that media companies have been historically aggressive against IP theft, are you ready to take the risk?

    Are you sure it is illegal? Where I live they deal these boxes in most electrical shops, on subscription. Nearly every bar has these boxes for TV.

    The box itself is legal, because it only streams free content. What makes it illegal is the "third party" addons that allow streaming copyrighted content.

    I think the Kodi case should be considered here, the UK government seems to be cracking down even on the users, not just the plugin-makers and retailers.

    If you can get IPTV licenses, then it becomes legit :rolleyes:
    Depending on which country you want to get the "official" document, it is more or less easy. I heard that the spanish license is easy and then you can get approved for payment providers etc. and you limit your risk even if you offer non spanish content

    Yes its illegal and they are attempting to clamp down on it better.

    That said it is pretty to hide yourself and get away with it, as long as you know what you're doing. A growing niche with big potential.

    To sell it. I suggest making a fake website offering, web design or something like that. Your customers can pay there and if the EU start sniffing you can just explain that you are offering web design services.

    Thanks man this first real advice I got it from here . I already have that Idea in mind and to be honest I was thinking faking Exit page for Paypal so it will refer to some regular shopping site .
    Legal ! do they allow none Spanish(or ate least non local channels ) . I can start such legal business with minimal profit . I already had experience with online broadcasting and I work fro long time with hosting business the way that I can create my own broadcast network .

    Lets say that some payment providers will accept you even if your license is for a different country than the content :anyway: . You can get a license pretty easily in some countries. At least, I have some clients who did this and they are established and just need to manage well their chargebacks
