Last week, TorrentFreak reported that the operator of unauthorized IPTV service BulkyIPTV had been arrested by police. A joint statement by Derbyshire Police and the Federation Against Copyright Theft has now confirmed that a 29-year-old-man was arrested on suspicion of fraud, money laundering and copyright offenses.
A UK-based IPTV service appears to have shut down as a result of police action. After doing business for two years, BulkyIPTV’s service went dark yesterday. Shortly after the service’s owner sent out an email saying that the ride was over. ”Today I was arrested. Everything has been shut down,” he said.
