I found my answer. He basically flat out admits that the shows were downloaded illegally. Kind of blows my mind how flippant he is about it.
"Mr Szaszvari claims he only downloaded 40 per cent of invite-only, pirated content from “private sites that aren’t known to the public”, including 14 seasons of Mythbusters and 24 seasons of The Simpsons. The majority, he claims, were legitimate downloads including Microsoft software updates, Xbox updates and syncing his Spotify library."
"Everyone seems to be making a huge deal over downloading some free TV and movies but that was only 40 per cent of the content,” he said."
"At the end of the day the bottom line is I wouldn’t download this if I had a decent connection at home and could stream Netflix properly."
"I have to load the movie, pause for half an hour then buffer, I don’t know if I’d call that streaming."
This blows my mind. Is he really that naive? Does he not know what he is doing it illegal? Blaming his connection speed is no excuse for blatantly downloading copyright material.
Wow, just.... wow.
