Pub landlord in trouble over foreign satellite TV

Showing live Premier League football matches in a pub is a sure fire way of getting customers through the door, however the Worcester News reported that for one pub landlord the lure of Albanian TV proved too much to pass by.

If Colin Kenwrick of the Berkley Arms in Worcester had taken out a commercial package with BSkyB it would have cost around £4,000.

But instead the landlord purchased a satellite dish and set top box from Dreambox, a Coventry based firm for just £1,595.

This system is able to pick up the Albanian TV channel, DigitAlb.

This channel is not permitted to broadcast outside of the country and yet in the Berkley Arms it was there for all to see, including officers from the Media Protection Service.

Colin Kenwrick and his son Richard were fined a total of £2065 for the offence.
