SKY Television claims victory over set-top box distributor Fibre TV

July 13, 2018

SKY Television has claimed a victory over set-top box distributor Fibre TV.

A judge in the Christchurch District Court ruled the sale of Fibre TV’s pre-loaded ‘Kodi boxes’ were unlawful and breached copyright, a statement from Sky TV says.

Sophie Moloney, SKY Television’s general counsel, said it was great to have the matter clarified as New Zealanders were buying the boxes under false impression that they were legitimate.
