Over 10’000 “Probox” FTA piracy devices have been destroyed in Uruguay on February 28, as a result of a legal procedure initiated in 2010 for signal theft and copyright infringement, which resulted in the seizure of the FTA devices and a destruction order issued by the Court in December 2012. 

While destructions of similar FTA piracy devices took place in the recent years, this is the most massive destruction of such devices that took place in Latam.

The Alianza contra Piratería de Televisión Paga (the “Alianza”) is a group of content providers, pay-tv broadcasters and technology providers aiming at combatting FTA (Free to Air) piracy throughout Latin America (see www.alianza.tv).
