UAE to crack down on unauthorised Dish TV dealers
Advertisement
#1
DUBAI: The UAE has issued directives to the authorities concerned to clamp down on unauthorised Dish TV dealers who illegally sell imported Dish TV set-top boxes from India throughout the Gulf.

The Ministry of Economy (MoE) recently conducted raids against unauthorised Dish TV dealers, with Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah police conducting similar searches in their respective areas, which led to the confiscation of a number of Dish TV boxes.

Set-top box is a digital recorder or receiver which is a small box required to receive Dish TV signals. The violators were arrested and criminally charged with violation of the copyright law marking the largest actions against Dish TV dealers in the GCC .

A statement released by the MoE said the directives strongly emphasise that selling these boxes in the UAE is prohibited as it violates national copyright law by infringing on broadcasting rights. Mohammed Ahmed Bin Abdulaziz Alshihhi, the general manag er of the UAE Ministry of Economy, said, “We have requested various parties involved to tighten control over unauthorised Dish TV boxes that illegally enter through a neighbouring country and are sold in our local markets.”
