UAE blocks pay TV info websites

Dubai, July 14, 2010

The UAE's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) said that it has become the first country to block websites that give out black market pay TV encryption data to viewers.

The TRA is cracking down on viewers who use the information to bypass scrambled satellite and cable signals.

The UAE authorities have unplugged TV viewers who descramble pay TV channels by downloading illegal pay TV encryption codes from the internet.

The new measures will 'protect intellectual property rights', the TRA said.
