You would think that but with Kodi/XBMC that is not the case their App grabs
and sends a HTML request on a per user basis.

So each and every request comes from a users Kodi box or app on their phone
etc what when the page generates the HTML response to that user it also
generated the response for their IP address.

It is like real web traffic.

I prevented them as I explained here,273405,273447#msg-273447

Also if you browse and view pornhub, pornsocket, youtube what ever streaming
sites etc you will see they now hide and obfuscate their stream links in
JavaScript to break these kodi box users as I explained in the link above.

Here is proof :
<script type="text/javascript">
	/*This entire area would be their broken up url link obfuscated to be put
back together again by JavaScript making it unreadable for these kodi/xbmc
users */ = quality_720p;

	playerObjList.playerDiv_111418492 = {
		'flashvars'	: {"embedId":111418492},
		'embedSWF'	:
{"url":"https:\/\/\/www-static\/flash\/","element":"playerDiv_111418492","width":"100%","height":"100%","version":"9.0.0"}	};
	<div id="playerDiv_111418492" class="playerFlvContainer" data-enlarge="1"
data-showautoplayoption="1" data-share="1">
			<video style="width:100%; height:100%;" controls="controls"
autobuffer="autobuffer" class="player-html5" preload="metadata">
				<source src="" type="video/mp4">
