Home > Opinion Articles >

Today we bring you the next episode of the Steal This Show podcast, discussing the latest file-sharing and copyright news. In this episode we discuss recent news stories, and talk about the 'dark side' of Over The Top TV.

steal240In this episode Natan Edelsburg and Minda Smiley, executive editor and reporter at media and advertising platform The Drum respectively, reflect on the future of Over The Top TV.

We discuss how streaming services could ignite a new piracy war, Hulu’s use of pirate data to decide what content to acquire, and how new moves from the FCC could land Popcorn Time on set top boxes in the US.

Finally we eye a potentially unruly future for Over The Top, with the appearance of generic android-based hardware and easy-to-use, renegade services like Kodi and Viper Media. How will content producers and advertisers adapt?

Steal This Show aims to release bi-weekly episodes featuring insiders discussing copyright and file-sharing news. It complements our regular reporting by adding more room for opinion, commentary and analysis.

The guests for our news discussions will vary and we’ll aim to introduce voices from different backgrounds and persuasions. In addition to news, STS will also produce features interviewing some of the great innovators and minds.
