Premier League Appoints ID Inquiries In Illegal Broadcast Crackdown

Fri 26th Jul 2013 | Television & Broadcasting

The Premier League has appointed ID Inquiries to carry out investigations into the unauthorised and illegal use of foreign satellite systems in the UK.

ID Inquiries, a Glasgow-based company, will conduct a wider and more targeted programme of pub visits and investigations than in any previous season.

A Premier League spokesman said: "We look forward to working with ID Inquiries as we significantly up our enforcement activity in this area with more planned investigations than ever before.

"This newly enhanced investigations programme follows recent successes in the High Court, including injunctions against the use of foreign satellite systems, and unauthorised streaming websites, being used in commercial premises to broadcast Premier League football.

"We remind all publicans that Sky Sports and BT Sport are the only authorised broadcasters of live Premier League matches in the UK and that legal action will be taken against those who use unauthorised satellite systems to show Premier League matches in commercial premises."

Should publicans or members of the public have any information about pubs or other commercial premises which might be using foreign satellite systems, or companies attempting to supply them, then please contact ID Inquiries on 0845 434 5055 or report@idinquiries.com.
