Set TV sounds too good to be true, and it turns out it is. They offer a cable alternative where a measly $20 a month gets the user over 500 channels, including premium services such as HBO. Not only does that sound like a bargain, but they promote the ability to watch movies that are still in theaters. Nothing shady here, nothing at all.
While the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are generally seen as competitors, there is a coalition binding Hollywood creatives against the common foe of piracy. The enemy of my enemy and all that. The coalition, dubbed ACE (Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment), filed the lawsuit at the end of last week against the subscription service and are seeking $150,000 per copyright infringement. It's probably a safe bet that Set TV wouldn't be able to avoid bankruptcy if found at fault, but a quick conversation with one of their customer support reps reveals they fear no repercussions.
