    Solaris Rebroadcaster closed down???

    A few forums around the torrevieja area are reporting problems with their Solaris rebroadcasting system.
    They have no TV signals.
    This may be due to reports of the Guardia visiting their premesis and removing transmitters and equipment.
    I can only assume this is due to them rebroadcasting channels without the required permissions from the channel owners.
    One poster said "Today Solaris has been shut down for not paying rights to re-broadcast pay to view channels."
    This must surely be worrying times ( ) for all those rebroadcasters that continue to transmit sky pay tv channels, which we know you cannot rebroadcsat without skys agreements and contracts - which sky are very very unlikey to agree to!
    As far as i know (although I could be wrong!) there is still one (Moriaria Digital) in my area that, although they do not advertise it, still shows sky pay tv channels (including the premium sky sports). It can only be a matter of time before the Guardia catch up to them and either get them to stop rebroadcasting pay tv channels without permission or close them down totally.
    We shall wait and see.

    Seven Britons arrested in Spain for satellite TV fraud

    The seven were all arrested Tuesday in Orihuela Costa, and are thought to have distributed TV channels illegally to 15,000 clients

    Seven Britons have been arrested in the coastal area of Orihuela for distributing pirated television signals to more than 15,000 clients, most of them also British.

    The Guardia Civil made the arrests in several urbanisations on Tuesday, starting at 9.30am in Urbanisation Laguna III in the area of Punta Prima.

    Telecommunications and computer material was seized in such an amount that several vans were needed.

    The group distributed the signal from several national pay channels from Digital Plus as well as international satellite signals. Itís estimated that they had made several million Ä in servicing at least 15,000 clients in the area.

    Several clients told the Guardia Civil that they were indeed customers of the group, but that they did not know the service was unauthorised.

    The seven arrested face initial charges of crimes against intellectual property and tax fraud. More arrests in the case have not been ruled out.

    this comes from Valencia News...

    Seven British people -four men and three women - have been detained in Los Montesinos and Orihuela-Costa for offering illegal TV services to over seven thousand clients - the majority of whom were fellow countrymen in the provinces of Alicante and Murcia, charging fifteen Euros monthly and an 890 Euros installation fee. Sources in the Guardia Civil have revealed that according to first estimates, the fraud committed by the group could be as high as thirty million Euros in unpaid rights and taxes. After the arrests, police confiscated 90,000 Euros in cash, computer equipment, signal decoders and transmission equipment with a value of over half a million Euros. The investigations started last August, when members of the Corps noticed that near the home of the one of the detainees there was an extremely powerful set of parabolic antennas, allowing the capture of several British-based satellite TV channels, that were then decoded and distributed amongst clients on the coast between Torrevieja in Alicante Province and San Pedro del Pinatar in Murcia Province. The police allege that the organization operated fraudulently, the company was not registered in Spain, no payments were made to Social Security as the law requires, whilst rights to the signal that was captured, decoded and re-broadcast to clients in fact was owned by other companies including Spain and UK
