mOlqLnS.jpgFor many NBA fans, the subreddit NBAStreams was a go-to destination every night during basketball season. But fans going to the subreddit for the start of the 2019-20 season will notice it's no longer active.

We reached out to Reddit at the time, and the company declined a public statement. But a spokesperson did refer to the company's 2018 Transparency Report, which shows DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) notices spiking in recent years. In 2016, there were 1,155 DMCA notices, which resulted in 610 content removals. In 2018, there were 9,534 DMCA notices, https://www.reddit.com/r/NBA_FanStream/ which resulted in 26,234 content removals.

As for why NBAStreams was banned
That's because at the end of the 2018-19 season, Reddit laid down the hammer and banned the subreddit. When you go to the page it reads, "This subreddit was banned under Reddit's Repeat Copyright Infringement Policy."
