Reddit banned National Football League Live Streams, which showed free live NFL games. Reportedly this was done to stop the free streaming of all NFL games. The organization termed it a violation of infringement policy. In short, all the free streaming will be banned. This is sad news for sports lovers.
The National Football league has a major fanbase. The fans love the league. It gathers a massive response from the entire world. All the NFL games are loved by all. People are fond of these games and watch them with great interest. The sports lovers find ways to witness the free streaming of NFL games.
A sudden ban by Reddit
Streams subreddit on Reddit was a go-to destination for all NFL fans. The subreddit featured links to streams of every NFL game, as well as RedZone from both NFL Network and DIRECTV. It was the perfect place for cord-cutters or fans of NFL teams that weren’t playing locally on television. However, if you’re going there in 2020 in hopes of finding streams, you’re going to be disappointed. As soon as you enter in the subreddit in your browser, you’re met with a message: “r/NFL streams has been banned from Reddit. This subreddit has been banned for violations of Reddit’s Copyright Repeat Infringement Policy.”
No statement from Reddit
Those who are fans of other sports can acknowledge this issue. The sudden shutdown of NBAstreams was bad news for the fans. The company denied any statement regarding this issue. However, we were directed to the company’s transparency report. Earlier Reddit said that it received 11,55 DMCA notices in the year 2016. Due to this 610 contents were removed. But the data for the year 2019 is much higher. Last year the company received altogether 34,989 copyright notices. This resulted in 124,257 content removals.
The reason becomes clear now
Well, the reason behind this sudden closure is pretty much clear now. Such actions were never taken by the company but now due to the growing infringement, they had to ultimately take this step. The company earlier stated, ” Our policy is to close the accounts of users, in appropriate circumstances, who have repeatedly been charged with copyright infringement. Sometimes a repeat infringement problem is limited to one user and we close just that user’s account. Other times, the problem pervades a whole subreddit community and we close the subreddit.”
