Stuart Miller Solicitors

Cybercrime - BSkyB TV Box Hacking

The specialist Cybercrime Solicitors at this firm defended our client in a very high-profile prosecution attracting substantial media and BSkyB attention.

It was alleged that our client, together with others, possessed and supplied set-top television boxes modified to allow users to view encrypted satellite television channels without payment of the relevant subscription to the service provider. 

Using sophisticated digital hardware and especially developed software, the group supposedly manipulated coding in the set-top boxes and allowed free viewing.
