Pirate Feed of Fox Soccer Channel Creates Issues

A League logo Pirate Feed of Fox Soccer Channel Creates IssuesFox Soccer Channel is causing a bit of a stink down under, but it’s not the sports network’s fault. It seems that a web site named channelsurfing.net is playing an illegal stream of Fox Soccer Channel to viewers around the world, which has particularly upset executives in Australia.

The Age newspaper from Melbourne, Australia, is reporting that Australian soccer officials and pay TV executives failed to stop the pirate internet tranmission from showing Fox Soccer Channel’s coverage of the A-League Final between Melbourne and Adelaide. According to The Age, Fox Sports had the rights to the match. But instead of paying to watch it on Fox Digital in Australia, many soccer fans down under watched the illegal stream.

Melbourne Victory defeated Adelaide United 6-0 in the grand final.
