    A workmate of mine was kicked off boards last week for daring to suggest to a fellow poster that if he got a vpn (virtual private network) and signed into Sky Sports with an Indian IP he could order the whole Sky Sports package for £12.50pm rather than £60pm month here in Ireland.
    The Mod said thats illegal and door'ed him. VPN's are legal.? My Netflix only costs me £2.99 a month because I suddenly lived in Pakistan. Whats the suss here ?
    Comments welcome.

    VPN are only legal when they are used legally, circumventing a broadcast is illegal. I'm surprised sky did not detect the vpn.

    Its against the charter of this forum to open threads just to question mod actions - and while it doesn’t matter for this purpose, the queried action isn’t one which was taken by a mod of this forum.

    Thread closed and the OP is now subject to a warning and will be banned if they try to restart the discussion
