A USB stick branded ‘Apple iPad6 TV’ found at the premises cost $99, which alongside a $50 per month subscription fee purported to offer over 1100 pirate TV channels (including MTV, Discovery Channel, ESPN, CNN, HBO, Fox and the BBC), over 1000 first-release movies on-demand (including Hugo, Tin Tin and Mr Poppers Penguins), over 600 adult films and downloads of popular television programs including ‘The Family Guy and ‘Big Bang Theory’.
Upon plugging in the USB stick, an autorun function executes a file (iptv6.exe) that launches this customised web browser screen, again bearing the Apple logo.
A selection of English-language 3D movies are among the entertainment available, most of which is Chinese-language content.
A forensic analysis found that while most of the copyright material was hosted in China, the service relied on domains and streaming servers based in the United States.
Detectives assess the seized evidence.
An offending device.
