Premier League illegal streaming gang jailed in UK

BBC, 31 May 2023
Five men who illegally streamed Premier League football matches to tens of thousands of people have been jailed.

The gang sold cut-price £10-a-month subscriptions, bragging they made money showing games not otherwise available to watch live in the UK because of "blackout" broadcasting rules.

Their operation, described as the biggest so far, received more than £7m from 50,000 subscribers.

The sentencing follows a rare private prosecution by the Premier League.
