The former Set TV operators launched new pirate live TV services despite being sued by DISH Network in 2018 for $90 million in copyright damages.
As reported by TorrentFreak, Set TV was accused of illegally obtaining DISH Network’s broadcasts and redistributing them for a lower cost.
The operators were reported to be Jason LaBossiere, Sean Beaman, Stefan Gollner, and likely other individuals at play.
Set TV then agreed to shut down services completely and hand over all equipment including set-top boxes with the software pre-installed, so it seemed everything was settled.
However, DISH Network pushed the court to reinstate the case against the Set TV operators after engaging in settlement discussions.
These discussions included a confidential settlement, a permanent injunction against Beaman, and an agreed final judgment.
But as the title of this article hints, these settlement discussions did not go as planned for DISH Network.
Come to find out, DISH said that Set TV operators LaBossiere, Beaman, Gollner are actually behind several other pirate IPTV services that include the following:
- Ping TV
- Mundo TV
If we had to guess there are probably dozens of other pirate IPTV brands/services at play here.
DISH would eventually learn about these new pirate IPTV services after being alerted via an “unsolicited email” that contained login credentials for test purchases.
This then begs the question – are government and copyright authorities using undercover accounts for pirate IPTV services to gather more insight about the operators?
In the end, DISH argued that the court’s permanent injunction is “clear, definite, unambiguous, and not susceptible to any interpretation,” which explains why the former Set TV operators started up new pirate IPTV brands.
DISH then demanded the imposition of a $1,000 coercive daily sanction in addition to the cost of attorneys’ fees.
