The website in question is Thailand-based website 365sport.tv, who apparently have been providing people with an illicit IPTV streaming service, which included live Premier League games.

Investigators believe the trio could be linked to five other streaming services Thaiexpat.tv, Hkexpat.tv, Inoexpat.tv, Vietexpat.tv and Euroexpat.tv.

The suspects have been charged with violating the Computer Crime Act and Intellectual Property Rights Act and denying the Premier League over 100 million baht in revenue.

Additionally, they are accused of retailing IPTV set-top boxes to clients residing in Thailand, along with other Asian countries and charging monthly fees for the services provided.

Raids followed, which netted nine servers, 49, set-top boxes and three mobile phones.

The two Brits have been released on bail at the request of the British Embassy. It is unclear whether Supattra is still being held in custody or not.
