Florida Federal Court Grants Judgment and Injunction Against SetTV

DISH Network L.L.C. and NagraStar LLC (collectively “DISH”) are pleased to announce the successful resolution of their federal court action against Set Broadcast LLC and its principals (collectively “the SetTV Defendants” and together with DISH “the Parties”). The judgment and injunction against the SetTV service marks a significant victory in the ongoing fight against pay-TV piracy, and a win for consumers who subscribe to legitimate pay-TV services. DISH filed suit against the SetTV Defendants on May 3, 2018 based on their operation of a streaming television platform (“SetTV”) that was used to rebroadcast programming content obtained from a DISH Network satellite signal without authorization. The SetTV service was in operation for approximately 16 months, from February 2017 through June 2018. Through the litigation, DISH asserted claims against the SetTV Defendants for violations of the Federal Communications Act, 47 U.S.C. 605(a) and (e)(4). On June 4, 2018, the Middle District of Florida Granted DISH’s Motion for Temporary Restraining Order which effectively shut down the SetTV service and imposed an asset freeze and evidence preservation obligations on the SetTV Defendants.

Dominican IKS

Statement from a Dominican IKS pirate

"I, [REDACTED], will like to offer my most sincere apology to Dish Network L.L.C. and NagraStar LLC for my involvement in satellite signal piracy a couple of years ago. Although I don’t remember much due the fact time has pass, I do remember that an ex-coworker explained me about the availability of the product (equipment and codes) and suggested me to buy it. I agreed and initially bought it from the suggested person and later on from others that were less expensive thru the internet. Back in the day, I did it seeking to economize some money due my economic situation. After I while, I stopped doing it and threw on the garbage the equipment I bought initially. After that moment, I did not buy any other equipment neither codes from anyone. Once again, more than ever I realize my huge mistake and the consequences that have arisen from it. I’m very thankful for the opportunity of the settlement and I hope with it, I can close this dark chapter in my life."

Statement from a pirate in Florida

"I first stumble into IKS when looking for information on FTA since I lived on a remote location and no cable service was available. I found a site that claimed that if a bought a donation I would received a lot of channels with no monthly payment and they sell it as a hobby. After spending a lot of money on equipment, and hours spent on trying to get the equipment work properly. The service was very unreliable and frustrating. There is said that when something seems too good to be true, probably it isn’t, well now I’m regretting all the wrong decisions I took all those years ago. I was wrong for what I did and I hope that whoever reads this post don’t do the same mistake I committed. My sincere apologies to all parties affected by my actions."
