Disney Plus recently celebrated its second birthday, and in a short space of time the Netflix and Prime Video rival has built up an impressive library. From this year’s hugely talked about WandaVision, to The Mandalorian and the recently released Dopesick – Disney Plus has plenty of exclusive shows you can only access on the streaming service. But anyone hoping to avoid paying the £7.99 per month subscription fee by accessing an illegal free stream of one of Disney Plus’s many shows need to be aware this could soon become more difficult.
That is because Disney is looking to strengthen its anti-piracy team to help with the ongoing battle against illegal streams and downloads.
As reported by TorrentFreak, the entertainment giant is looking to hire a new recruit who will analyse and track the latest piracy trends – which could mean Disney are a few steps ahead of those that try to access paid-for content illegally.
The successful candidate will also have to help with enforcements efforts and evaluate new anti-piracy tools.
The new hire will need to be willing to work evenings and weekends as well, seeing as the battle against online piracy never sleeps. They will carry out their work from Disney’s office in California.
Disney began advertising for the role – which is a Digital Media Antipiracy Analyst – earlier this week.
The job spec for the role says: “This position will be part of a team that is responsible for providing antipiracy services with a focus on combating online piracy.

“Duties of this position include supporting enforcement of films, television shows and live events, researching piracy technologies, websites, and apps, tracking piracy data, providing regular reports on piracy trends, evaluating prospective providers of antipiracy services and managing existing providers”.
The latest Disney anti-piracy news comes as dozens of popular streaming website and torrent download portals – which offered illegal access to Disney Plus, Netflix and Prime Video content – have now been banned in the UK.
These sites, which were used by millions of people, can no longer be accessed in Blighty after the Motion Picture Association (MPA) obtained a new blocking injunction.
Disney is a member of the MPA, along with Netflix, and anyone that visits the offending websites will now be greeted with a message saying a High Court order prevents access to it.
Here are the list of piracy sites which can no longer be accessed in the UK…
