Thai cable TV firm sues Apple

Reading Time: 1 minute

Sport channelCable Thai Holding (CTH), a new private cable TV provider that owns the Thai broadcasting rights for the English Premier League, is suing Apple for selling applications through its App Store that enable people to view the matches on mobile devices for a $29.99.

The company has filed lawsuits against Apple Inc, Apple South Asia (Thailand) and its executive with the Intellectual Property and International Trade Court and the Criminal Court, demanding compensation of 100 million baht ($3 million). CTH is also suing the developer of the app, known as “Sport Channel HD”, in the Criminal Court.

The company’s lawyer said it had earlier sent a letter to Apple South Asia (Thailand) demanding that it remove the app from its store, but Apple did not reply. The company therefore is accusing Apple of wrongfully allowing the sale of an app that enables the violation of CTH’s sole broadcast rights to EPL games in Thailand.

CTH was launched in 2012 and said it acquired the rights to broadcast the English premier League over three seasons for 10 billion baht ($303 million).
