Is the ApeX Sports Addon Legal?
Yes, it certainly is! This addon does not host any content and is essentially just a search engine. It is, therefore, 100% legal to install. However, most links scraped from databases and websites are unlikely to hold the proper licencing for broadcasting/distributing the content. In reality, this means you will be unlawfully streaming copyrighted content. Doing so could get you into legal trouble. Accordingly, you may prefer to use this addon with a VPN.
In order to stream anonymously, stay protected, and unlock the internet, I recommend using NordVPN.
Legal Copyright Disclaimer: As has been noted, streaming copyrighted content is unlawful and could get you into legal trouble. On account of this, we do not condone the streaming of copyrighted content. Therefore, check your local laws for streaming content online before doing so.
