Pub owners across Spain charged for illegal TV channels


MORE than 90 people from the hospitality sector across Spain, including Malaga, are in trouble for showing TV channels illegally.

They have been charged for crimes against intellectual property and telecommunications fraud. The investigation began after a TV producer complained that 168 bars, cafeterias and restaurants were showing a TV signal destined for home use.


The used cards acquired for residential use from cable TV operators and used them in the establishments. The price for the contract specifically designed for public use is more expensive.

The operation was carried out by police in Madrid, Leon, Valencia, Lugo, Malaga, Valladolid, Sabadell, Ponferrada and Santa Coloma de Gramanet.
