The Minister of Transport and Communications HE Jassim Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti has participated remotely in the 44th round of the Arab Satellite Communications Organization (Arabsat)’s General Assembly meeting hosted by Jordan.
An investigation into rogue Saudi channel beoutQ’s activities has confirmed it used satellite infrastructure owned by Arabsat to illegally broadcast football matches.
World soccer governing body FIFA on Sunday said it is exploring each of its legal options as a means to address beoutQ’s unauthorised broadcasts.
The Premier League received a boost after a court ruled that a Saudi Arabian satellite provider has pirate-broadcast every game so far of the Women’s World Cup to Europe. A hearing in France found that Riyadh-based Arabsat was illegally transmitting the tournament on the rogue channel, beoutQ.
