BREIN secures €10,000 settlement from IPTV seller


Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN has secured a €10,000 settlement from an illegal IPTV provider who allowed users to access illegal streams.

The provider supplied illegal IPTV subscriptions, both singularly, and preinstalled on media players, allowing users to access large amounts of illegal TV and movie streams.

BREIN obtained an ex parte injunction on 1 May against the provider, who has now agreed to pay €10,000 for each IPTV subscription or hyperlink that violates their agreement.

Tim Kuik, director of BREIN said: “We advise consumers who bought such a media player and/or subscription to retrieve their money from the seller.”

“Once the links are no longer tracked, the boxes and subscriptions stop working. People are getting excited, but it’s better to spend your money on legal offerings so you pay for innovation and creation and can keep enjoying new content.”
