Investigators from anti-piracy organisation FACT have joined forces with Police in a series of raids against illegal streaming services.
Investigators visited homes in Essex, Hertfordshire, West Yorkshire and Pembrokeshire to serve notices informing suspects to cease any illegal activity with immediate effect.
The latest action, which comes ahead of the new Premier League season targeted individuals promoting unauthorised access to premium TV content.
Kieron Sharp, Chief Executive of FACT said: “We employ a range of tactics to prevent the provision of illegal streaming. Our continuous activity targets different elements of the global piracy landscape, with consideration given to the scale of the offending to ensure effective and proportionate action is taken.”
This initiative is the latest in a series of actions to crackdown on illegal streaming and those profiting from it.
Last month a man was arrested in connection with suspected illegal streaming of pay-TV channels and other copyrighted material, following a West Mercia Police investigation in partnership with FACT.
