The Piracy TV Racket companies occupy almost 80% of the market share by selling national and international channel content at very low prices. The customers are drawn to them due to this very reason, but most people are unaware of the fact that using illegal services like these might make the customers prone to hacking/ loss or misuse of personal data. This service might collect all the personal data of the user without their knowledge keeping the users and subscribers at grave risk.
As 80% of the market share is driven by these companies, legal broadcasters, Online TV content providers, who have legal licenses and rights are suffering major losses.
