Netflix, Amazon & Others Sue the Dragon Box, Which Uses Kodi Add-Ons


Depressed mature man holding paper and looking at it while sitting on the couch at homeIn what is becoming an almost weekly event, there is a new lawsuit in the United States targeting a Kodi-powered piracy service.

This week it is Dragon Media Inc., the company behind the Dragon Box device. This device is an Android-powered streaming player that uses third-party Kodi add-ons to stream content to subscribers for free after you buy the box.

The Dragon Box website proudly proclaims “No Monthly Bills. No Entertainment Costs” and goes on to say “One Box. Thousands of Channels” and ends with “Watch Your Favorites Any Time For Free.”

The Dragon Box Plus with one-year subscription now on their website costs $629.99, or you can get the standard box for $349.99.

According to the lawsuit, Dragon Box has “over 250,000 customers in 50 states and 4 countries and growing” and “374 sellers” across the world.

These lawsuits have been going on around the world for some time now. In the United States these lawsuits got started last year when a host of Hollywood studios sued the makers of the TickBox.

None of these lawsuits have a court ruling in the United States. Expect the first of these cases to be settled or have a court ruling at some point in 2018.

      Won’t they be happy if the service is shut down for legal reasons just months after they paid their cash.

      Buyer beware.

    After decades of being raked over the coals by the Cable companies, relatively cheap TV is now achievable.

    There’s no good reason to be stealing TV.

    I remember the big dish pirating days, when HBO scrambled 1/1/86. The pirates came out hacking the VC2 units to get “free” HBO and other channels. Only to find the cost involved to steal programming and coming up with a “new” set of codes constantly was very costly. As soon as the codes came out and were hacked, then the codes were changed. By the time wasted the person stealing the programming, and cost, they could have subscribed legally to HBO years. If man can make it, there will be those who try steal it.
