Re: Customer Base = Scamming Hughesnet

I don't want to be on the list when Netflix subpoenas NightShift for their customer base.

Hughesnet lawyers have to cover there BUTTS.  That's all that is.  Nightshift has to use there routers and there USB..  Nightshift uses its own software so it not be transferred to any other user.

Letter from Nightshift


Does the NightShift solution break copyright laws?

  • Any cached files are stored in the their original format and protected by Netflix DRM; it does not tamper with Netflix DRM in any way
  • NightShift does not enable or make it easier for an end user to watch content from a different region. Netflix makes content available based on IP address and NightShift follows that.
  • Users cannot consume any of the content on NightShift without a valid and active Netflix subscription, internet connection (to login into Netflix and start the movie) and a supported Netflix player.
  • When consuming content from NightShift, the end user is still streaming video from their Netflix player like always.  NightShift simply provides a local cache that it is streamed from.

Does the NightShift solution violate any Netflix terms of service?

The terms of service state that: "You agree not to archive, download (other than through caching necessary for personal use), reproduce, distribute, modify, display, perform, publish, license, create derivative works from, offer for sale, or use (except as explicitly authorized in these Terms of Use) content and information contained on or obtained from or through the Netflix service."  NightShift simply caches the content for personal use within the home.; this does not violate the terms of service.

How does NightShift help Hughesnet customers?

NightShift allows Hughesnet customers to use their night-time bonus bytes to pre-load Netflix content onto a home router for personal viewing buffer-free the next day.

"There" routers ?
do you mean "Their" routers ?
And who's routers are those ?
Hughes has no residential "routers"
They do have Modems and those are far from being routers.
Look at the suites that RIAA has brought against every day users.

If you want it go for it but don't blame your ISP or others for questionable judgement or actions.

And I am done with this topic.

Re: Customer Base = Scamming Hughesnet

The "caching" Netflix is referring to is your browser cache or smart TV cache which dumps as soon as video ends with live streaming. Storing the cache for viewing later is another thing. Have a feeling the courts will decide what means what eventually.

Still no source where Netflix has any agreement with NightShift.

You mean an Asus router with third party firmware.

Yes and no.. Nightshift sets up everything inside of the router also. They do add software to the USB.
