    Hi

    so I currently have a free trial for my mag 254, been trying to read up online whether I should pay for a subscription or not based on the legality, some people are saying it's illegal and some people say it's not and in a grey area, what are people's opinions, an inbreaking the law by watching a stream?

    It depends on the laws in any specific country...

    I'm not an expert but from what I understand here in the UK it is LEGAL to watch streams because of a loophole in the law (the USA also has the same loophole I believe)

    The loophole is that the only offence for an end user is "possession" of copyright material but when you stream content you never actually physically download it - you just have a few seconds in the device RAM which you can't access directly... This loophole will probably be closed eventually

    As for paying for streams - you can pay for them if you want, there isn't a specific offence of "buying" copyright material as far as I know, the guys selling IPTV need to be careful though and box sellers can also be busted
