DISH Is Suing Easybox IPTV for $10 Million





Male hand holding TV remote control.DISH has been on a warpath recently going after IPTV services. With several major wins against IPTV services including against Set TV, DISH is now expanding its lawsuits.

Last week, DISH filed a lawsuit against Easybox IPTV for streaming content DISH owns exclusive US rights to. Easybox sells streaming players ranging in price from $199 to $369 that come with 12 months of service.

“Defendants use their Easybox Service to transmit the Protected Channels over the Internet to Service Users soon after the original authorized transmission,” the complaint reads.

“Defendants capture live broadcast signals of the Protected Channels, transcode these signals into a format useful for streaming over the Internet, transfer the transcoded content to one or more servers provided, controlled, and maintained by Defendants, and then transmit the Protected Channels to Service Users through OTT delivery.”

DISH is asking for $10 million in damages and a permanent injunction against Easybox and anyone acting in concert with it. Even though Easybox may be sold from outside of the United States DISH seems to be hoping that they can stop the flow of boxes into the United States. DISH may even be hoping to go after resellers inside the United States like they did with Set TV resellers.

This is just one more step in DISH’s plans to fight back against IPTV.
