According to reports, one of the biggest IPTV service suppliers has been shut down.

The IPTV service supplier is based in the UK and was closed down “due to legal reasons”.

Details of this are not readily available, but although we do know a name of the provider, until we have more facts about the situation we will not be publishing it.

This IPTV service supplier provided IPTV streams for resellers. This means that many of their clients will no longer have access to the IPTV streams.

A number of customers using this IPTV service, are based in Spain, and used its service for UK and Scandinavian channels.

As this IPTV server is based in the UK, then it is probably safe to assume that this shut down was prompted by UK broadcasters, in conjunction with the Police and FACT.

This could be a good reason not to use an IPTV service based in the UK, for UK TV IPTV content. Once identifier that your IPTV service provider is based in the UK is when you pay in “Pounds Sterling” or where your provider says the price you pay may change as “we pay in pounds so it may vary a little”.

More than a thousand devices were seized in two locations this morning and at least two people have been arrested.

After a joint investigation by the Metropolitan Police and the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) into the sales of set-top boxes programmed to provide access to movies, TV shows, live sports and subscription channels without permission, officers raided locations in the south and Midlands areas of the country.

Astra 2G Satellite : News Update : 10 June 2015 :
Astra 2G, the third and final new UK TV satellite is now slowly moving towards the UK TV slot at 28 east.
At the time of writing it is at 32 degrees east, and as it is moving at about 0.5 degrees a day, will be at 28 east by the 15th June.

Once in position, it is expected that channels on the aging and failing Eutelsat 28A will be moved to Astra 2G. Also some channels from the two other new satellites, Astra 2E and Astra 2F, will also move to Astra 2G.

Which channels, and onto what beam will not be known until they do move.

Astra 2G Launch Date update

 

Astra 2G is the third and final new UK TV satellite.

It was expected to be launched earlier in 2014, but this has been delayed by politics (Ukraine situation) and another Proton rocket failure.

Astra 2G is now expected to launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome sometime in Q4 2014, most likely November or December.

This would mean that Astra 2G could be operational in February or March 2015.

 

Astra 2G is expected to have the same signal footprints for its satellite beams as its “sister” satellites Astra 2E and Astra 2F.

The British expat rumour mill has suggested that Astra 2G will mean expats in the south of Spain (Almeria, Costa del Sol, Malaga) and Portugal (Algarve) that lost their BBC and ITV channels in early 2014 will regain their channels. This is rumour an is not expected to happen.

a) Astra 2G has similar reception to that of Astra 2E and Astra 2F.

b) Why would the BBC and ITV channels move from their Astra 2E satellite to another satellite just to restore reception in south of Spain and Portugal?

 

Likewise, the rumours and scaremongering by some XBMC / Android box / Brit TV box / Costa Smart TV / IPTV boxes suggesting that this final new UK TV satellite will mean a total loss of all UK TV in Spain are also untrue. Just like it was totally untrue (well for my service area and most of Spain) for the previous two new UK TV satellites!

The UK’s Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU) has arrested a man in the north-western city of Manchester on suspicion of running a series of illegal sports streaming websites.

The arrest marks the third carried out by PIPCU in the streaming sector.

Early Monday, officers from PIPCU arrested a man in Manchester in the north of England. Police say the 27-year-old is believed to have operated a series of websites which offered access to subscription-only TV services.

PIPCU say that the domains were sports-focused, so given the premium pay TV landscape in the UK it seems probable that they infringed the rights of BSkyB and possibly the Premier League. Police are yet to confirm the details.

The man was arrested at his home in the North West by the City of London Police’s specialist IP unit where detectives found evidence of what is described as an “industrial size” streaming operation, including 12 computer servers streaming a wide range of sporting events from across the world, which have since been seized and taken away.

The operation was supported by Greater Manchester Police with the suspect being taken to a local police station for questioning.

DCI Danny Medlycott, the newly appointed Head of PIPCU, said that the September 1st operation was the unit’s third arrest in relation to online streaming and sent out a strong message that we PIPCU was homing in on those who knowingly commit or facilitate online copyright infringement.

“Not only is there a significant loss to industry with this particular operation but it is also unfair that millions of people work hard to be able to afford to pay for their subscription-only TV services when others cheat the system,” he said.

PIPCU is based within the Economic Crime Directorate of the City of London Police, the National Lead Force for Fraud. It is a specialist police unit dedicated to protecting the UK industries that produce legitimate, high quality, physical goods and online and digital content from intellectual property crime.

The operationally independent unit launched in September 2013 and is initially being funded by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO), which is part of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

The City of London Police’s Intellectual Property Crime Unit was set up in the summer of 2013, and has quickly grown to become one of the world’s most active anti-piracy operations.

The unit employs a wide range of strategies, from writing to domain registrars and threatening them, to working with advertisers in order to strangle the revenues of ‘pirate’ sites.

PIPCU also relies on old-fashioned police work to deal with sites that fail to heed their warnings to tow the line. This has resulted in several arrests in the UK and the closure of dozens of domains, torrent site proxies in particular.

With key partner the Federation Against Copyright Theft and its members including the Premier League and BSkyB, piracy of TV-destined content has become an area of interest to PIPCU, particularly that involving live sports.

Interesting day today.

1 Freesat HD system installed for clients fed up with their IPTV / xbmc / android brit tv box system – low image quality, always buffering, endless trawling through non working links, little help from the person who sold it…

1 Sky HD install for people fed up with their PAY IPTV service that was always buffering and hard to see images on sports channels. With their new Sky HD system, they commented “we should have done this months ago rather than waste money on that mag250 system”!

And 3 more disgruntled internet tv users wanting a hd satellite system on the answerphone today …

Wonder why this surge all of a sudden…..

The Premier League starts this weekend

Watch it Live and in FULL In HD

Only Sky, BT Sport, BeIN Sport, Canal+ Spain

Or watch it from some dodgy internet need that is probably less than Standard TV definition, and play “spot the ball”, “spot the player” and “find a working stream”….
