‘Pirate’ IPTV Service Simply-TV Responds to DISH Lawsuit

Simply-TV, a recently-defunct ‘pirate’ IPTV service, is being sued in the United States by broadcaster provider DISH Network. In a recent response to the complaint, the alleged operators of the service – which bears a close resemblance to the also defunct SETTV – accept some but not all of the allegations filed against them. In 2018, DISH Network and encryption partner NagraStar sued several individuals, companies and trusts collectively doing business as SETTV. As part of its $20 per month IPTV package, SETTV offered numerous TV channels that had been obtained from DISH’s satellite service. These were subsequently retransmitted without authorization on the SETTV streaming service. Last November, DISH’s lawsuit came to an end, with SETTV’s operators ordered by a Florida court to pay a settlement of $90 million in statutory damages. However, the fight against similar – if not identical services – was not over. In March 2019, DISH and NagraStar filed another lawsuit in Florida, this time targeting several individuals and companies collectively doing business as Simply-TV, a $20 per month service which several users have described as having many similarities to SETTV. “Defendants created a pirate streaming television service they have branded ‘Simply-TV’. Defendants sell Device Codes and Android TV Boxes designed to enable access to the Simply-TV pirate streaming service, which includes numerous television channels that were received without authorization from DISH’s satellite service and were subsequently retransmitted without authorization on the Simply-TV pirate streaming service,” the complaint reads.

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.

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."
