MPA Chairman & CEO Receives Award for Shutdown of Mobdro Application

mpa chairman distinguished for mobdro shutdown

The MPA (Motion Picture Association) Chairman & CEO has received an award for his assistance in the shutdown of the popular Modbro Application.

As first reported by TorrentFreak, Charles Rivkin accepted the Distinguished Cross of the Police Merit from Spanish Police for his work in dismantling Mobdro, a once-popular live television application.

This is regarded as the highest honor a civilian can receive from the Police Force.

Rivkin stated the following on the work done by the Spanish Police and his team at the MPA:

We are deeply grateful to the General Director for his leadership and to the Spanish National Police, for their commitment and partnership in the fight to reduce piracy. Together we have assembled an extraordinary team to tackle this important issue, which continues to be a threat to the global audiovisual community, harming both local and foreign films and businesses, threatening jobs, undermining investment, and stifling creativity.

The most notable operation by the MPA and the Spanish Police was the termination of the popular Mobdro application.

Authorities and the MPA initially began investigating Mobdro in 2018 which eventually led to the Mobdro Developer being Arrested in March of 2021.

This app provided access to tons of live channels from across the world and reportedly had over 100 million users.

  1. What’s interesting is that they’re going after “free” iptv at all. There are commercials in these “free” services. When I paid my cable company WAY TOO MUCH to get the same service, they allowed me to pay a little extra (nice of them) to get their DVR that I could then use to record and fast forward through all the commercials. Recording on these iptv services is much harder, so I tend to sit through the commercials. I would say that I do pay for my service.
    The MPA should look more closely at the disparity in wages between those overpaid actors, producers, directors and corporate executives, and their everyday workers trying to make a living. They should embrace the free streaming of iptv so that their adds reach more people. Those in the MPA that are giving out awards for shutting down iptv services are not the struggling actors working two jobs to get by, it’s the fat cats trying to protect their bloated salaries.
    Who pays authors and actors when I watch tv over my rooftop antenna, when I “borrow” a book or dvd from the library, or when I purchase a used copy at the tag sale down the street for 25 cents? Shouldn’t the MPA’s real battle cry be “Lock up those librarians!!!”

  2. It’s all about the money. What about our rights as citizens to look at what we want. It’s a damn shame. I really enjoyed Mobdro & it’s content. They had the nerve to give an award. They need to use this same tactic to stop sex trafficking! Thanks for letting me vent!

    I believe the shutting down MOBDRO is all a political game that this people play to keep citizens like me to access free TV. In addition they just want to keep taking people’s money.
    All these salite companies know this and are afraid of loosing capital.

  4. Hi Troy..Ever heard of 1st class iptv? Some claim this in the number one streaming app??
    My question at 81 years of age, if all these iptv apps that stream across utube are illigal, why does utube allow them to sell it?? Thanks for all that you do..Great teacher!
    Best regards,
