Hello,

Been doing some work for a customer and noticed he had sky sports running but no sky box in sight so I asked him if he was stealing someone else's feed (in jest) and he told me about this open box v8s he had installed and said it basically gets all channels for free and has had it for months no problem.

Debated the legality over the box and he said it's the streamers and the people who set it up who are committing an offence not the watcher

Who can be legally implicated and what would they be penalised with ?

Curious so when I go back to do some work over then next few days I can set him straight
