Welcome to EnvyTV
Currently under the US law it is not illegal to repackage or resell IPTV. The FCC has held
that the IPTV resales do not violate any franchise or exclusivity agreements with cable
providers under federal law. Also, if you are reselling broadcasts that are available
online streaming on foreign servers as part of your IPTV packaging, courts have held
this would not be a violation of the copyrights laws in the US.
Watching TV content streamed over the internet is legal. However, it is not legal to download or
record any material that is copyrighted. Some IPTV services stream content from servers that
have recorded the content, and many times the content is copyrighted. Even though you are
watching it as it as streamed, at some point it was downloaded to get you the content. envyTV
does NOT offer any type of downloaded content such as a movie-on-demand or TV series.
Streamed content, the aggregator of the content that envyTV uses purchases content from the
content owners through arrangements known in the industry as “carriage deals”. The rates the
aggregator pays for the right to stream this content are determined by a fee scale based on how
many customers will be viewing the content and the size of the servers used.
The aggregator is licensed to stream the content through these carriage deals with the various
content owners, envyTV does not stream downloaded content which makes envyTV legal.
