30 arrests in Spain for pay-TV piracy

The Spanish police has carried out a crackdown operation on TV pirates in 10 provinces arresting 30 people for pirating the signal of the country’s main pay-TV platforms: Movistar TV, Vodafone TV and Orange TV.

The pirates manipulated STBs to give illegal access to pay-TV services. They used the card-sharing model whereby one of them legally subscribed to a pay-TV platform, then gave illegal access to many others.

The police operation started following a warning from La Liga of the existence of the pirate network.
