Two Britons arrested in Thailand over football streaming
Two British men have been arrested in Bangkok for allegedly selling online access to streaming football broadcasts illegally.
A complaint from the Premier League to local authorities was reported to have led to the arrests on 11 May.
The men were named as William Lloyd, 39 and William Robinson, 35.
They are accused of causing damages worth more than 100 million baht (£2.2m) to the broadcast rights holders.
A third man, who is Thai, was also arrested and named as Supatra Raksasat, 33.
Agents for the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) also seized nine computer servers, nine computers, 49 set-top boxes and three mobile phones.
The three men allegedly sold illegal broadcasts of football matches on the 365sport.tv website, which is currently offline.
Customers of 365sport.tv have discussed problems accessing the site in recent days via online forums.
Deputy chief of the DSI, Suriya Singhakamol, said the suspects may also have been involved in transmissions broadcast via Thaiexpat.tv, Hkexpat.tv, Indoexpat.tv, Vietexpat.tx and Euroexpat.tv.
According to local reports, the two British men were handed over to the British embassy in Bangkok.
The BBC has contacted the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Premier League for confirmation.
