The Spanish National Police, with the help of Europol, has disbanded a sales network of devices that allowed access to pirated content after a complaint put forth by Egeda, LaLiga and Mediapro.  

In the last few hours, the Spanish National Police has announced the arrest of six people in La Coruña, Jaén and Barcelona as part of an operation to disband an international piracy network which operated from the country.

The operation was carried out with the help of Europol after findings pointed out all six detainees were offering Web TV devices through a company and more than 14,000 points of sale around the world. Web TV devices allow users to access pay-tv networks illegally, as well as series, movies and sports events.

The company also developed apps for said deices, while also offering support and advice to users via a forum that explained how to access pirated content and provided download links for the firmware needed to update the server connection from where content was broadcasted.

The arrests were made following an investigation carried out after a complaint put forth by Egeda, LaLiga and Mediapro.

The price of illegal decoders was approximately 120 euros and they were sold both in stores and online. All devices were developed in Galicia and made in China.

Estimates claim that the company behind the products has made no less than 1.5 million euros.
