Two Los Angeles based programmers, Luis Villarino and Darryl Polo have been running alternative streaming sites named Jetflicks and iStreamItAll. These offer more movies and TV Shows than Amazon Prime and Netflix. The FBI investigators have raided the illegal streaming sites and shut them down.

Both plead guilty

Darryl and his co-defendant, Luis have pleaded guilty for running the illegal video streaming sites. iStreamItAll offered more content when compared to Amazon Prime, Vudu, Hulu, and Netflix. The two US-based programmers, were smart to convince the customers in the US to forego the genuine streaming sites such as Netflix and instead choose its video streaming sites.

The US Justice Department commends FBI

FBI Shutdown Two Illegal Streaming Sites Bigger Than Netflix, Amazon & Hulu - iStreamItAll

The US Justice Department has commended the efforts of the FBI to nab the culprits. iStreamItAll and Jetflicks offer pirated content on various devices that include smart televisions, tablets, smartphones, digital media players, gaming consoles, a KODI addon and other computer systems besides offering to the subscribers over the Internet. The two programmers have urged the people to pay for their streaming services and get more. Prices for these services ranged anywhere from $19.99 per month to $179.99 per year and displayed content in an easy to use interface for members to stream.

The two computer programmers are now charged with copyright infringement. In total they offered 11,000 movies and 118,000 TV episodes through iStreamItAll. Which as mentioned before is bigger than Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix. Jetflicks and iStreamItAll had several hundred paid subscribers.

iStreamItAll earned over $1 million

Polo was engaged in downloading movies and TV Shows from torrent sites and Usenet NZB sites hosting pirated content. He then processed them and streamed illegally on iStreamItAll. Polo targeted potential customers through emails to subscribe to his services. Besides working as a programmer at Jetflicks, he also runs other piracy services that include SmackDownOnYou. His earnings from piracy are estimated at over $1 million.

iStreamItAll and Jetflicks have caused massive loss of several million dollars to the movie and TV copyright holders. Apart from copyright infringement, Polo is also charged with criminal distribution of copyrighted work. Luis also works as a programmer for Jetflicks,. There he uses automated software to reproduce and stream several copyrighted movies and TV shows to paid subscribers. He is also charged with copyright infringement.

In 2015, Reed Hastings, Chief Executive Officer of Netflix, said piracy is its biggest competitor. Piracy is a major concern for streaming companies.

What are your thoughts on the recent shutdown of these two streaming sites? Let us know in the comment section below!

IPTV, which means Internet Protocol Television, is gaining a lot of popularity over the years around the world. People in every country have been using it more and more each year in order to cut the cord and to watch their favourite content. However, you may also heard that is best when using IPTV to have a certain level of protection, that is also true when it comes to the use of pretty much anything on the internet these days. And the best way for protecting yourself online is a VPN. But, do you really need a VPN for IPTV? In my opinion the answer to that question is an absolute yes but let’s also explain why. Also by using a reliable and secure VPN like Surfshark you will make sure to be invisible and protected online.

IPTV is monitored

IPTV is typically closely monitored, meaning that if you use it without protection, you might find yourself monitored as well. You may have heard the latest news regarding Xtream Codes and the privacy issues that were created from it. Some IPTV use may involve streaming copyrighted material and this makes it topic open to debate. But with that in mind, it is important to protect your privacy online. What you watch is no one’s business but yours, and it should stay that way. That doesn’t mean we condone streaming copyright material and you should ensure whatever IPTV services you’re using are completely legal and you have the rights to be watching them. But since in some cases that is also not always easy to control, making sure your privacy is protected by using a secure VPN like Surfshark will let you sleep safe at night.

IPTV streams suffer from ISP bandwidth throttling

This is not always the case but unfortunately it is becoming a trend lately among ISPs. Not just for IPTV but also other streaming sources like Netflix, Youtube and more, are suffering by this bad practise of some ISP that is throttling, meaning intentional slowing the internet service. This is their way to limit usage of not promoted applications by the specific ISP and forcing to subscribe to their own services. In a lot of countries that is illegal, but not in the United States anymore. Even if in some countries this is illegal, there is no real control and it is also hard to prove, so some ISP are abusing their ability to control your internet speed. By using a secure VPN there is no way for the ISP to know what you are actually doing online so that they can limit your speed. So in order to avoid buffering, using a VPN is a really wise choice. Surfshark makes sure to bypass internet throttling, giving you back your real internet speed whatever you do online.

Some IPTV is Geo blocked

Some IPTV services are geo-blocked. That means that will only work for some geographical locations and if you are not living in one of them, you wouldn’t be able to access them. But one of the advantages of using a VPN is that you get to choose which country’s server you want to use. That means that you can live for example in Europe but still be recognized as a US resident by those services. And this applies not just for IPTV but also other streaming (or not just streaming) services as well. But make sure to use a reliable VPN like Surfshark with different servers worldwide and that can guarantee optimal speeds.

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus is almost out thanks to Netflix this time. To be more exact, Netflix has just released a new trailer for the film and it shows that Enter the Florpus is everything that a fan of Invader Zim would expect. In this trailer, you get a bit more of what the film’s about compared to previous trailers.

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus Netflix

Nickelodeon unfortunately canceled the show back in 2004 before the second season was full finished. That was because of poor ratings. Invader Zim creator Jhonen Vasquez said: ”The mission was not necessarily to make a kids’ show and it wasn’t to make a show trying to shock people, either. It’s just a particular kind of stupid.”

But since then, and even during its initial run, the show was a fan-favorite despite being subversive in its animation, content, and messages. Also the merchandise of the tv show has never really gone out of production. On the contrary, you can still buy many items featuring Zim and his trusty robot servant GIR online.

The new Netflix movie’s synopsis seems to tease that ZIM will finally find out why he was sent to Earth. According to the Netflix synopsis “ZIM discovers his almighty leaders never had any intention of coming to Earth. He loses confidence in himself for the first time in his life, which is the big break his human nemesis, Dib has been waiting for”.

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus Trailer

In an interview with Polygon about the upcoming movie, the creator also explains that he’d turned down revisiting Invader Zim in the past. He also explains why he’s choosing to do so now:

“The tricky thing about returning was making it clear to the new Nick that inviting Zim back meant inviting Zim back, a thing that wasn’t going to be something else, they were still inviting a pulsating garbage bag of filth encrusted rabid weasels into their studio. For the most part everyone understood what they were signing on for.”

Enter the Florpus will be on Netflix on August 16.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box Review & Benchmark

The Xiaomi Mi Box S is the successor of the previous Android TV Box best seller, the Xiaomi Mi Box 3. The Mi Box S, also called Xiaomi Mi Box 4 in China, is an updated but yet very similar version of the previous model. It comes to fill in the gap between the NVIDIA Shield TV and the Amazon FireTV Stick. With it’s price and performance, it does exactly that. Offers a great alternative as an Android TV OS device, with a built-in ChromeCast UHD and great 4K HDR performance on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Kodi, Hulu, Youtube, Plex, etc.

The Xiaomi runs Android TV, and unlike the Android mobile OS, this particular platform doesn’t have a thousand different micro-variations depending on manufacturer. Android TV is almost identical whether you run it on a NVIDIA Shield TV or a Sony Bravia TV or as in our case, a Mi Box S. In the particular the Xiaomi Mi Box S is powered by Android 8.1.0 Oreo out of the box.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box 8.1 Oreo

With a good score on Antutu v6, unfortunately the 3D engine of Antutu version 7 kept crashing on the Xiaomi Mi Box S. It got an average of just below 35000 and on GeekBench it scored 645 on single-core and 1804 on multi-core.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box Antutu Benchmark

Great also the performance of the Dual Band WiFi 2.4G and 5G ac of the Xiaomi Box S maxing out my internet speed 180 – 20 MB.

Overall it has a great performance, superb 4K playback on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video which you have to sideload in order to install it but make sure to install the Android TV version (not the one for the mobiles). Also on KODI 18 Leia it will play any kind of format 4K UHD without issues. The response of the device is always excellent and overall you will have a more than enjoyable experience.

Great opportunity to get the brand new Android TV Mecool KM9 from Gearbest on a flash sale for just $53.99 / €47.94 / £43.09 the lowest price ever until now!

Powered by Android 8.1 TV OS, the Mecool KM9 comes with the latest version from Amlogic the S905X2 64-bit CPU, a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU, 4GB of DDR4 and 32GB of internal storage. It also comes with Dual Band WiFi, Bluetooth v4.1 and of course a remote control with which you can fully control your Android TV device. Great and exciting features as we see also on the device. Finally a good looking device and with a new LED on the front that can change color depending the state and the functions. Also great to see finally a USB 3.0 on an Android TV device, which is located on the side of the device along with another USB 2.0 and an SD Card slot. On the back of the device we find a DC-in, the HDMI output, the Ethernet 100M port and an AV out.

What is missing from the Mecool KM9 is the optical output that some people really look for but my guess is that most people nowdays will just use the HDMI as in other devices, like the NVidia Shield TV or the AV out for a soundbar.

Great video performance of this device thanks to the new CPU always very capable to 4K playback at 60fps, capable also of 4K UHD HDR, HEVC 10 Bit. But also for other Android applications is very capable, even gaming since the processor is good enough, although not at the NVidia Shield TV level, but also the 4GB DDR4 help a lot with multitasking and heavy apps. Supports the latest version of KODI 18 Leia and also the new feature with voice search inside KODI through the remote control. On the Google Play Store Android TV version you can find a lot of exciting titles, that said you can also sideload any “vanilla” Android application you want.

Overall a great device and an excellent opportunity for a future-proof device by Mecool. For more info and in order to buy it on a flash sale for just $53.99 / €47.94 / £43.09 visit the link: https://goo.gl/E1YqmF

You may have wondered how is it possible for Netflix to have such an amazing production line-up of original shows. The answer is obvious for some but no-one could have really guessed how many subscribers can Netflix have. In the past year (that is 2016), Netflix has expanded to even more countries getting close to deliver awesomeness on almost every country on the planet! The image below (courtesy of Netflix) shows where exactly Netflix is available. It may be that in some countries some specific shows do not appear due to copyright laws, which was one of the toughest problems Netflix faced, but for more or less a subscriber in New Delhi a can watch the same episode as a subscriber in New York.
