News.ie, 3 October 2018 View article The news channel has been ordered to pay an injunction and stop selling its K40 cable antenna cable.
The Federal Court heard on Monday that the TV channel must cease selling its “Cable K40” cable antenna kit and the device which converts it into a wireless cable.
The channel, which is owned by Foxtel, is owned in part by Foin, which also owns Channel Nine.
It will pay $1.5 million in costs to the Federal Court.
A spokesperson for the channel said that it was “deeply disappointed” with the court order.
“The court has made clear that the company does not recognise that its actions are in breach of the Broadcasting Act or of the Telecommunications (Digital Economy) Act,” the spokesperson said.
“This decision is in the best interests of the public, including those in rural and remote communities, who are relying on the television channel to deliver high quality, affordable television.”
