Illegal Sky closed down


by David Allen

It is a well-known fact that in certain parts of Europe Sky and BBC TV can be received without the need for the subscribers to pay Sky anything or the BBC either.

However, this has all come to end in Spain as the authorities have raided the offices of the Telmicro Levante Company and the signal was turned off.

The company operated a microwave distribution system. This is where they took whatever channels that wanted from the satellite signal and then re-transmitted the channels to their local customers.

They had around fifty-seven channel packages to choose from, with ten being aimed at the English speaking market.

This action means that the customers of Telmicro Levante are without their regular fix of TV, despite the fact that they may have paid around £250 for installation of the equipment and an annual fee of around £100.
