Premier League helps shut down Modbro

The Premier League has helped to clamp down on an illegal streaming platform known as Modbro that was being used by around 43 million users across the globe to illegally stream not only Premier League matches but also movies and TV shows in various languages. 

One individual has been arrested by the police for the illegal app, and are in the process of questioning three more people. The app could be used to stream a variety of content on smart TVs, tablets, smartphones and ‘illicit streaming devices.’

Modbro was cracked down on earlier this month, and reports indicate that the people behind the illegal app made about €5 million before their platform was shut down. 


Premier League Director of Legal Services Kevin Plumb said: ‘Mobdro’s criminal enterprise amounted to long-running and large-scale theft. 

‘These raids show we and our colleagues at ACE are committed to taking action against piracy, regardless of location. 

‘The protection of our copyright is hugely important to the Premier League and our broadcast partners, as well as the future health of English football.’

The Premier League is known to have one of the most comprehensive anti-piracy policies in the world. And it works extensively to prevent free and illegal streaming of their games. 

With the coronavirus pandemic protocols ruling out fans from attending matches for what has been a complete year now, all games are being broadcasted on British media. This has also caused an increased number of illegal sites streaming the vast number of games being held every weekend.
