A network of TV piracy has been dismantled in Spain with the arrest of 12 people who illegally distributed pay-TV signals at a much lower price than the market to some 20,000 customers across the country.

The pirates would have reportedly earned around €1 million. The police have closed down seven websites and several social media profiles where the arrested party were promoting their illegal services.

The police have seized 86 STBs, 15 hard disks, 10 computers, 17 mobile phones, two NAS servers, and €22,000 in cash.
