LaLiga blocks the website of AceStream, the popular streaming player based on VLC, without clarifying why it is illegal

  • 16

LaLiga and Movistar do their thing again. Now it has been the AceStream official website, the popular open source streaming player based on VLC, which has been blocked in Spain. The process is one more step after blocking up to 85 IPTV applications last April.

AceStream relied on URLs to broadcast live content. It is a decentralized platform where users could share their own broadcasts. A legal tool that was sometimes used fraudulently to broadcast football matches without rights.

AceStream falls on the list of blocked pages of Movistar and LaLiga

The AceStream website has been blocked by LaLiga and Movistar, based on the authorization from the Mercantile Court No. 9 of Barcelonathat authorized on July 25 to block up to 79 web addressesincluding the popular player.

These listings cause the website to be blocked, not only by Movistar, but also by the main Internet providers in Spain. Unless we use a minority operator outside the scope of the sentence or the use of a VPN, the acestream.org website is inaccessible and gives an error.

The blocking of web pages does not affect everyone equally: why it is possible to continue accessing from small operators

The AceStream web blocking continues the persecution against this tool, whose application had already stopped working for some time. Now, in addition to blocking the different URLs that provided the content, the general address has also been blocked which speaks of the tool itself. AceStream is still available through the Play Store, on tablets and mobile phones.

The blocking of AceStream is another example of how LaLiga and Movistar they are blocking completely legal websites. Relying on rulings that allow streaming websites to be blocked, the professional football organization and the operator that manages the rights are managing to block pages that are legitimate.
