Two brothers from Ciudad Real, in the Castilla La Mancha Region, have been arrested for pirating pay-TV signals and illegally distributed them to 3,000 subscribers.

The network decrypted the pay-TV signals and then distributed them at lower prices than the official ones, earning them some half a million Euros a year.

The probe started after a claim from La Liga. The police actions against piracy have intensified over the last months after complaints from La Liga as well as a number of pay TV operators.
