Are you like most Canadians that enjoy streaming and downloading videos for free? And you bought a ‘Legal’ Android TV box in Canada? Are you wondering if all Android TV boxes are legal in Canada? Well, it all depends – on how you use it.
Let’s review what are considered legal Android Boxes and where you can find legal Android Boxes to buy in Canada.
An Android box is a plug and play multimedia device that transforms any TV into a Smart TV. Also called a ‘TV box,’ it gives you access to live sports, television shows, and movies. Plus, it can be used for a variety of games, to play music, surf the net, and for other applications on your TV. It’s one of the easiest ways to view high-definition videos without a Smart TV.
The device is shaped like a small box, and most brands of Android boxes are not bigger than 5 inches wide by 2 inches tall. It uses either Wi-Fi or the wired ethernet connection to connect and give you access to your video content.
The box itself isn’t illegal. But, how it is used may contravene the laws for copyright infringement. Most Android TV Boxes are sold with the statement that you can “watch movies for free”. This is because a lot of Android boxes come preloaded with software that allows you to stream pirated movies and shows.
The most popular software is Kodi, a legal free open-source home theatre software. But, unfortunately, there are other software – not legal – that can allow you to stream movies that are currently in theatre, or shows that you can’t access your cable plan.
These preloaded software and plugins make it easy to just, plug, play, and stream movies and shows on your TV. It might seem as nothing is wrong because you aren’t actually downloading the content. But, this is considered illegal by the European Court of Justice because temporary streaming of copyright-protected material is not exempt from the “right of reproduction”. So, streaming, in essence, is just as bad as downloading based on the ruling which states:
“that acts of temporary reproduction, on a multimedia player, such as that at issue in the main proceedings, of a copyright-protected work obtained by streaming from a website belonging to a third party offering that work without the consent of the copyright holder does not satisfy the conditions set out in those provisions.” European Court of Justice, April 26, 2017
Facebook has also waded into the discussion by updating its Commerce Policies for Digital and Electronic Devices to state:
“Posts may not promote the sale of devices that facilitate or encourage streaming digital content in an unauthorized manner or interfering with the functionality of electronic devices.
Promoting the sale or use of streaming devices with KODI installed”
In Canada, we know of the court cases that went to the Federal Court where cable companies sought and won the banning of certain fully loaded Android boxes.
Legal Android boxes come without illegal software and add-ons which allows streaming of movies and other pirated video content online. If you’re in the market for a new Android TV Box, then find one with the official versions of the Kodi software installed and not unofficial addons.
Currently, it is legal to use an Android TV Box in Canada to stream TV shows and Movies, just not to download and save a copy. And you can find Canada’s best Android TV Boxes here.
