City Council Approves Unverified IPTV Reseller Plan

city council approves iptv reseller plan

The Mapleton, Utah City Council has made the controversial decision to approve an unverified IPTV reseller plan, raising concerns over the legality of the service. The proposal, known as the Xtreme HD IPTV system, aims to provide high-definition streaming services to residents and businesses in the area, competing with other communications companies. However, the channels offered by this service are the same as those provided by a well-known pirate IPTV service, leading to questions about the council’s approval of an illegal operation.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Mapleton City Council approved an IPTV reseller plan in 2023 despite concerns over its legality.
  • The proposal, called Xtreme HD IPTV, aims to offer high-definition streaming services to residents and businesses.
  • The channels offered by this service are the same as those provided by a well-known pirate IPTV service.
  • Mapleton City Council’s decision has raised questions about the council’s understanding of the legality of the service.
  • The approval of the illegal IPTV reseller plan has sparked public backlash and concern.

Mapleton City Council and Transparency

The Mapleton City Council is committed to maintaining transparency in its operations and ensuring that accurate records are kept. Transparency is a core value for the council as it strives to serve the community and build trust among its residents. As part of its transparency efforts, the council proactively publishes many documents on its official website, allowing citizens to access important information about council decisions, meetings, and initiatives.

One notable initiative undertaken by the Mapleton City Council is the construction of a fiber network to provide high-speed internet to residents. This project reflects the council’s commitment to enhancing connectivity in the community. Alongside this effort, the council has made a conscious effort to keep the public informed about the progress and updates related to the fiber network.

Within these published documents, residents can gain insights into various council activities, including the decision-making process, financial reports, and community outreach programs. By providing access to these records, the Mapleton City Council ensures that the community has a clear understanding of the council’s actions and the reasoning behind them.

One such document and video revealed that the city staff proposed the implementation of an unverified IPTV streaming service, known as Xtreme HD IPTV to the council. The proposal emphasized the service’s value and cost-effectiveness, making it an attractive option for consideration.  Unverified means that we can’t ascertain whether the service holds the proper licensing to broadcast the content that they do.

The IPTV Reseller Approval Process

On March 15, 2023, the Mapleton City Council unanimously approved the implementation of the Xtreme HD IPTV reseller plan. The approval came after a 16-minute testimony describing how the service works and the absence of legal concerns. The council members asked questions during the discussion which you can see in the video below.

The city is going to resell IPTV service credits at a significant markup through the Xtreme HD IPTV Reseller plan.  Both residents and businesses will be able to take advantage of this new TV service provider which offers thousands of channels and VOD content.

Here is the portion of the City Council Meeting on March 15th, 2023 where the members discuss the service and ultimately approve it.

Potential Motivations

The motivations behind the Mapleton City Council’s approval of the unverified and possibly illegal IPTV reseller plan remain a mystery. With a relatively low crime rate and residents’ median household income exceeding the national average, it is unlikely that the council’s decision was driven by financial desperation.

Further investigation is needed to uncover any potential underlying reasons for the approval. It is crucial to understand the council’s motivations to evaluate the implications and potential consequences of their actions.

It could be that the members of the council simply don’t know the legal ramifications that come with unverified IPTV services such as the one they are planning to offer.  There are now thousands of unverified IPTV services available for purchase on the Internet and most come off looking very polished which leads consumers to believe they are also legal.

Public Backlash and Reaction

The approval of the unverified IPTV reseller plan by the Mapleton City Council has ignited a wave of public backlash and widespread concern among residents and industry experts alike. Many individuals have raised serious questions about the legality of this service, as it offers the same channels as a notorious pirate IPTV provider.

This decision by the council has not only sparked outrage but has also triggered a debate regarding the regulations surrounding IPTV services and the potential consequences of supporting illegal streaming platforms. Industry experts argue that such actions undermine the integrity of the streaming industry as a whole, as they enable piracy and copyright infringement.

Residents who rely on legitimate streaming services are worried that the approval of a possibly illegal IPTV reseller plan will have a detrimental impact on their access to content and fair competition among providers. Moreover, the lack of transparency and due diligence exhibited by the council has further fueled the public’s anger and frustration.

Mapleton City Council members have been asked for comment but there hasn’t been a response yet.

    Hard to believe an IPTV service would knowingly allow this and as mentioned above could be a Council member that is a reseller and would stand to profit off this. Well I’m sure if the Service finds out about this they will not allow this reseller to move forward.

    Be wary of this, it may be a Trojan horse.

  5. These services come off as 100% legit when you look at the websites. It’s hard to blame the general public when they know nothing about this stuff. But, watch the video. He talks about discussing with legal and they approved it. This is crazy but kudos to them!

    There aren’t any other municipalities doing this.

  6. Mapleton, Utah has a population of about 11K with a density of about 600 residents per square mile.

    Sounds like most residents there are cord cutter and already have a 2-connection sub from Xtreme HD.

  7. Probably invited by Miki. Lol

  9. Servers will be overloaded, channels crash, Xtreme HD cash grab

  10. City is set up for failure with this. Can’t wait to see how this turns out

  11. What an idea, an enterprising municipality… interesting way to get more $$$ into the city coffers. We’ll see how long this will last. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

  12. Well now we know where the new ACE Hardware store will be located. lol

  13. The ads discussion has kind of hijacked this topic so those will be deleted at the end of the day once everyone has read them. Thank you.

  14. This makes me uncomfortable. IMO it’s best that unverified IPTV remain a province among those “in-the-know” as opposed to becoming some obscure Utah town’s cable tv system. I don’t believe this will work out at all and I see potential embarrassment for the denizens of Mapleton when it’s revealed that the most oft-watched channel is ADULTS 24/7?:laughing::laughing::laughing:

    My worry is that iptv is still kinda sorta in the dark and the authorities kinda sorta tolerate it because of that. This really brings it into the light and seems prime for a big lawsuit that could cause a cascade everywhere.

    Mapleton City must of seen xtreme on Troy’s unverified IPTV list as being number #1. Maybe the city council will become a Patron too!
    I see this is a test between unverified IPTV services such as Xtreme HD and your big corporate monopolies like DirecTV and Dish Network and the rest of the overpriced satellite and cable systems.
    Let The Bodies Hit The floor, Let the Bodies hit the floor, Let the bodies hit the floor yeah yeah! LOL

  17. Avatar for MarkxG MarkxG says:

    I could see the City Council becoming the Greedy little Cable Company here Not only resell jacked up IPTV service but also lease streaming boxes. And they would send someone out to “install” the service onto Tivimate

  18. Mapleton just got the attention they don’t need. Extreme HD is headed for some serious problems even if they did not sanction this idiocy.

    If I had an Extreme sub, I would go to my account page and delete as much info as you can and be looking for another provider asap.

    It’s not so much as a town of about 11K people but the nationwide advertising they will generate.

    Afte all, the town of Mapleton could sell their services to anyone in the world. lol

    Just think an IPTV City! If you lived in the town. You could walk down to your providers house and complain in person why your streams are buffering. lol

    It all depends where extreme HD originates from what country, I’ve had payments go to Hong kong. I’m not worried about it I already got my money’s worth out of them. Also there’s several copycats of extreme HD they’re not even sure that this city bought from the original.

    I can guarantee that Charlie Ergen’s detectives will be all over this lol.

  21. It will be an interesting town council meeting when the councilors and subscribers are served with lawsuits for violation of copyright laws. Wouldn’t want to be one of them when property taxes are jacked up to cover settlement costs, fines, legal fees.

    And if the town has already laid in fiber to the homes, why wouldn’t residents just go out and buy an IPTV unverfied subscription anyway to run on all that bandwidth without paying a crazy markup to the town??

  22. Be a great sideline for Miki. Got to be a lot warmer there than Sask. And taxes much lower too.

    Ohhhh I like the way you think @peterrsa123. Less taxes to pay is always a plus. Just couldn’t handle all the necessary teaching that would be needed on a project like that though.

    Yup they actually Built their own Fiber Network. Their 300MB plan is higher than what I pay for 300 MB with AT&T Fiber. This is a small little town and my guess is they don’t know much if anything about unverified IPTV service providers (or that they are illegally using one for that matter!). They are just giddy as hell because they can cut the cord (cable) and get a ton of channels a lot cheaper now

  30. Looks like that was back from March of 2023.

  31. That’s exactly what happened. Utah is the king of ponzi schemes and the like. This is to become the worst news in the world for extreme. Terrific comments and great humor abound as this small town is now big news.

  32. Definitely a step in the right direction for cord cutters but a tiny bit irresponsible in not explaining the legal or illegal aspects involving streaming of copyright content as well as the risks of cyber attacks and many other factors involving IPTV in general.

    Seems shady and lacking education and research, they are passing the buck by telling the council that they will not be involved with tech support ( and we know how well that will go… ); that guy presenting must have some kind of seniority, they believe everything he says; it’s all about money.

    I’m sure the ‘big guys’ aren’t happy and will try to stop this…their battle begins!

  33. Only in Amerika, lol! …and you can always trust a lawyer when you are chasing that nickel. I can hardly wait for the followup!!!

  34. Is city council going to be the citizens customer service contact to report buffering, looping, down channels, ppv issues? Maybe the can start reselling a VPN as well along with their own version of Stremio, Kodi or Cinema HD :joy::joy::joy:

  35. Avatar for teehar teehar says:

    haha could you imagine calling in to complain of buffering?It would of course be automated,average wait time 45 mins blah blah lol

  36. Many condolences if that was your IPTV provider as that’s about to get ddos’d off the map by Hollywood.

  37. Just when city council thought it couldn’t get any worse…:laughing::boom::laughing::rofl:

  38. I’m an optimist, maybe the cities population is lower income.
    Cable is expensive, and so is child care. IPTV is not. Maybe that’s their motivation?

    Just a thought.

  39. Any update on how this is working out for them in Mapleton?
