Roku Bans cCloud TV – A IPTV Linking Service

By Nitish Singh / April 10, 2018

The IPTV linking service provider - cCloud TV has just been banned from Roku TV, as per the source. The popular service makes available numerous IPTV streaming links on a multitude of platforms. It essentially relied on users to contribute media links that lead to movies, TV shows, or live sporting events, found throughout the web.

As told by Bane, cCloud TV founder, “project cCloud TV is known as the ‘Popcorn Time for Live TV.’ The project started with 50 channels and has grown over time and now has over 4000 channels from all around the world. [...] The project was inspired by Popcorn Time and its simplicity for streaming torrents. The service works based on media links that can be found anywhere on the web and the cCloud project makes it easier for users to stream.”

Besides the huge content library, it also boasts unrivaled cross-platform support which includes modern web browsers, Kodi, Xbox One, Apple TV, smartphones and tablet support, VLC support and also works on Plex media server. Not to mention the service also worked on Roku TV until this recent ban.

Apart from cCloud TV, Roku also banned USTVnow channel from their platform around the end of March. In this regard, it is to be considered that the Superior Court of Justice of the City of Mexico banned importation and distribution of Roku devices in the country last year. This decision was taken after Cablevision, a local cable TV provider filled a copyright complaint, and demanded Roku “to make adjustments” to their platform to prevent copyright violations.

Current speculations for Roku’s ongoing cleansing spree might be because of the “adjustments” demands made by Cablevision. Roku is yet to provide exact details on this matter.
