(Telecompaper) Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Competition has fined the BeIN Media Group USD 2.6 million and cancelled the Qatar-based network’s licence to broadcast in the country, reports Times of Saudia. The action follows a dispute over piracy of BeIN’s satellite signal. In the first weekend of the Premier League season, all ten matches were reportedly pirated by BeoutQ, which is said to have its roots in Saudi Arabia.
