Illegal Broadcast of British Grand Prix 2018 sees Formula One enter BeoutQ Piracy Row



Another story on beoutQ’s broadcast rights’ theft has appeared in international media outlets, as ‘The Independent’ has reported, just ahead of yesterday’s F1 British Grand Prix, that the pirate channel is illegally broadcasting the race. 

The report comes to add salt to injury for beoutQ, who has been condemned by various world sporting organizations such as FIFA, UEFA, CAF, F1, The Tennis Federations, and the Deutsche Fussball Liga, for stealing broadcast rights. 

According to The Independent, the same channel hosting pirated live streams of Formula One championship races has also been accused of illegally broadcasting matches of the football World Cup, currently taking place in Russia. 

The report also mentioned that the F1 authority, the FIA, is focussed on broadcasts from BeoutQ, a pirate service that has allegedly been stealing the signal from a legitimate broadcaster (beIN MEDIA GROUP) and streaming it illegally.
