The Premier League has launched calls for Saudi country satellite operator Arabsat to stop providing a platform for a pirate community which is”abusing” sport.
The network, known as beoutQ, first began streaming sporting events illegally and despite continued attempts by sports the piracy has continued.
Nowa report by manufacturer protection company MarkMonitor commissioned by many of both leagues and confederations says a definitive connection has been created between Arabsat and the community.
The 21 members of the Arab League has been headquartered in Saudi Arabia and founded in 1976 arabsat.
“The report confirms without doubt that beoutQ’s pirate broadcasts have been transmitted using satellite infrastructure owned and run by Arabsat,” read a statement released jointly by FIFA, UEFA, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), the Premier League, the Bundesliga, LaLiga, Serie A and Ligue 1.
“We’ve been frustrated in our efforts to go for an official copyright claim against beoutQ in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and, even while we have received reports that beoutQ broadcasts are currently disrupted, we still call Arabsat and the rest of the satellite providers to discontinue (and going forward agree to extend ) providing a stage for piracy, that harms not only legitimate licensees, fans and gamers but also the sports which it abuses.
“Cutting off its access to transmission services would be a major step in the fight to prevent beoutQ. We all, individually and together, stay committed to bringing an end to international sporting piracy.”
Arabsat and the Saudi state are approached to get a reply from the Press Association news agency.
The UK and US governments have previously spoken out from the surgeries of beoutQ, together with the chairman of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) choose committee Damian Collins formerly describing the system’s activities as”straightforward piracy” in May of this year.
