Kodi box crackdown called for in UK, use being called “tantamount to theft”

The UK government’s former Secretary of State for Culture, Media, and Sport John Whittingdale has published a call to arms over illegal streaming.

In a statement specifically calling out Kodi boxes, he said:

“Illegal streaming of copyright content is tantamount to theft and is already doing huge damage to our broadcasters, content creators and rights owners. In 2018, let’s take action to stamp it out.”
