I honestly agree that illegal streaming boxes are definitely a problem. Do you want to know how I feel about it? Well I was raised in a family that is VERY Religious, We're Catholic. So we all taught about morals, right and wrong, etc. I have never stole in my life, I have never been arrested, I've never been charged criminally, and I've never been to Jail. When I want something, I am taught to work really hard, and you can afford things you desire. After getting married and moving into my own house, I am now responsible for the TV situation. I had a choice, Go with Antenna, go with a Legal streaming service like NetFlicks, or Showmi or Crave TV, or go with a Subscription Cable TV service. NEVER Has it crossed my mind to purchase a Kodi Box with illegal addons, not even once. This has NEVER been even an option for me, its stupid, its childish, and people who use these kind of things are Selfish, and have no respect for intellectual rights. Once again, I'm a Catholic, and I work very hard at my job and I'm compensated appropriately for it, so I decided to go with a Subscription Cable TV service, well its actually a Satellite, but It's often grouped with Cable TV because it competes with other TV providers. If myself and my Wife's job situation was different, and we were poor, or not as financially sound as we are, we STILL WONT CONSIDER STEALING TV WITH A KODI BOX, We would probably downgrade our TV package or go with Antenna.
I do want to comment on others, There are people we know who make a lot of money, more than my wife and I do, and they brag about how good their kodi box is, but every time we come over to their house, its always freezing, buffering, lagging, and I always ask them if its so good, put on this channel or that channel, and guess what? they dont have those channels, and I always tell them well if you want something so bad, sometimes you have to actually PAY for it instead of steal it, and they don't seem to care but hey, I did not raise this couple and they are definately not Catholic, so I don't know if they learned about what is morally right and wrong.
Not every rich person I know steals though, there are tons of people who make good money and actually spend it on their TV service. Sometimes you have to stop and think, if you can afford something, then yeah go ahead and buy it, if you can't, then don't buy it. Sometimes its OKAY to live without Premium TV services, the world is not going to end, you don't have to steal it, but if you cant afford it, dont get it, no ones holding a gun to your head and forcing you to steal, so don't freaking do it, its stupid, and sooner or later people will call you out, if you are one of my friends, I'm gonna call you out publically untill you realize how dumb you are, and guess what? If you feel entitled to using those illegal kodi boxes then I feel entitled to calling you out and putting you on the spot too. Think of me as the "good guy"
