I got a phone call this evening from a “IPTV” retailer, trying to “recruit” me, by saying all of Spain will only get UK TV via the internet by this week…as no satellite signals would be available in Spain….

There followed a few moments of silence after I mentioned I was getting UK TV fine on my 80cm satellite dish where I was!

“That’s not possible” he said…”all the signals have gone and switched off in Spain…no-one can receive anything”.

…as i turned up the volume enough for him to hear the TV – and then changed over to several channels to prove I was still getting signals.

“That’s not possible. That’s not possible. There are no Sky TV signals in Spain any more.”…he kept on saying…

as I started to watch the BBC Inside Out exposure on internet TV piracy….about providing pay tv channels without the correct subscription and viewing cards….

  1. Internet TV services

    None of the main UK broadcasters has given permission for internet TV services to stream their UK channels abroad.

    In such cases, IPTV providers in effect steal the content and often charge users for the privilege or add advertising, without any regards to the rights holders. A recent European Court ruling indicated that such providers would have to seek permission from the channel operators to carry their channels. Some IPTV providers claim to exploit legal loopholes, but international broadcasters and rights holders are reviewing their legal options and are even pursuing some IPTV providers in the courts

    • Do you have a link or source for the “recent European Court ruling indicated that such providers would have to seek permission from the channel operators to carry their channels”? Would be interested in reading it…

    • I see nothing in these that relates to any court cases about “recent European Court ruling indicated that such providers would have to seek permission from the channel operators to carry their channels”.
