Britain’s commercial broadcasters have won their long-running dispute with TVCatchup over the distribution of their content over the internet.
The question of whether online portal TVCatchUp can rebroadcast UK commercial channels is heading to the European Court of Justice.
BBC, ITV and Channel 4 won a victory against the streaming mobile and online service TVCatchup at the European Court.
Fightbox, Fashionbox, and Docubox, three HD channels from from SPI International, are now available in the UK.
ITV, Channel 4 and Five have launched a joint action against the online streaming service TVCatchUp. Coming on the eve of the football World Cup the timing of the move should not be under-estimated, particularly when ITV will be promoting live streaming of its share of the matches from South Africa.
