Football Decoder Card Lands Pub Licensee In Court

THE FORMER licensee of the Catcracker Pub in Corringham pled guilty to illegally televising satellite football matches.

Grays Magistrates Court heard that Media Protection Prosecution Services attended at the pub on Sunday December 13th and found that the pub was showing the Barclays Premier League clash between Arsenal and Liverpool using an illegal Albanian decoder card.

The court heard that use of the device can help an establishment avoid paying a £11,000 per year subscription.

The licensee at that time, Peter Edge, 62, was fined £215.
