ACE Files Lawsuit Against Popular IPTV Service “Streaming TV Now”

Streaming TV Now ACE Lawsuit

The Alliance for Creativity & Entertainment (ACE) has filed a lawsuit against the popular IPTV Service “Streaming TV Now’ and its owner/operator.

In a U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, the anti-piracy platform officially filed a civil copyright infringement lawsuit against William Freemon, the alleged operator of Streaming TV Now.

According to ACE, the service “infringes ACE member’s copyrighted works by offering subscription access to thousands of live television channels and over 35,000 pirated movies and shows”.

ACE is notorious for shutting down these illicit services as we have seen the group target many in the past including IPTV Services, 3rd party APKs, and popular streaming websites.

Oftentimes, these services go offline voluntarily after the alliance contacts them directly, usually threatening legal action which was the case for William Freemon and Streaming TV Now. However, it appears that Freemon was not willing to cooperate and ultimately left his service intact.

You can see that the operation is still up and running if you visit the official Streaming TV Now website which still presents membership options that provide users with over 11,000 channels & VOD Content for just $20/month.

With the lawsuit now filed against Freemon and his service, it will be interesting to see how it plays out and whether or not the courts will agree with ACE and force the removal of his operation.

Karyn Temple, Senior Executive Vice President and Global General Counsel for the MPA noted the following:

Mass copyright infringement has a significant impact on the entertainment industry and the U.S. and global economies..

Operators of illegal services, such as Streaming TV Now, profit from pirated content and often mislead consumers about the legitimacy of their services. When infringers, like Freemon, refuse to shut down their infringing services, we are prepared to pursue all legal remedies.

We will keep you informed on this situation as more details are made available. This story was originally published by the Alliance for Creativity & Entertainment.

  1. They can shut down everyone of these services. I’m not paying to watch TV anymore. I care more about eating. Not everyone can afford to pay All these tv service companies just to watch a few hours of TV a week. I’ll stick to regular ota tv until they cut that off. I will say it’s sad they put reruns and total crap on regular TV so most will pay for better reruns and older movies.

  2. As I call it I don’t watch council TV as is utter crap thinking about cancelling my TV licence as I don’t use normal TV all reapeats

  3. Sad news indeed if this service goes under. I’ve been with them for several years and have nothing but good things to say about them. I’ll see what happens between now and the end of my current subscription. I have a replacement lined up just in case.

  4. It depends on each person’s watching needs and wants… and their family’s as well. I agree live tv leaves a lot to be desired anymore. That doesn’t mean I want to be without it or a good VOD source. It is just a bonus it saves money from what cable tv would be. Also, regardless of content, it has become a hobby for so many Troy supporters and cordcutting enthusiasts over the years.
