Sky TV Update

08 December 2011

Pub of Ulster are aware that Sky have a team of investigators operating in Northern Ireland charged with detecting licensed premises showing Sky copyright material such as Sky Sports.

To date we understand that some fifty premises have been identified and legal action may follow.

Sky have indicated to Pubs of Ulster that they intend to vigorously enforce their legal rights and that anyone showing Sky copyright material without the Pint Bug will be prosecuted.

Whilst Pubs of Ulster believe that charges imposed by Sky are unreasonable and unsustainable in the current economic climate, Pubs of Ulster would advise all members to operate within the law and await the outcome of the London High Court case in the spring.
