Taiwanese host Blackie Chen has apologised for watching the Olympics through a pirated online stream from a set-top box.

For the past week, the 43-year-old has been sharing snippets of the Olympics and cheering for Taiwan athletes on Instagram Stories.

It was all fun and games (quite literally, we must say) until sharp-eyed netizens noticed that Blackie was streaming the Olympics from a pirated source.

What gave it away was a caption on the top corner of screenshot he posted that showed that the footage was streamed from an Anbo brand TV set-top box. Such digital boxes offer access to pirated online streams of movies, TV shows and sporting events.
