'Kodi boxes' that let users illegally stream films and sport

Media players configured for piracy “challenge recent progress” against illegal streaming, a new report says.
The popularity of such devices, which have become widely known as “fully loaded Kodi boxes”, has surged recently. 
Though they have nothing to do with Kodi, they’re often pre-loaded with the open-source software and a number of third-party add-ons that enable users to illegally access copyrighted content, like TV shows, films and sports fixtures.
According to new research from the Intellectual Property Office (IPO), such media players are proving tricky for authorities to deal with.
“Streaming giants such as Netflix and Spotify have helped keep online infringement in check with innovative new streaming models, however new threats are beginning to challenge recent progress,” it says.
