    Five individuals have been charged for unlawfully distributing Internet Protocol television (IPTV) following an investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

    The investigation, dubbed Project OLoki, began in January 2020, and focussed on a group of individuals who were running a large-scale unlawful IPTV distribution service. IPTV is the delivery of television content over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, in contrast to delivery through traditional terrestrial, satellite and cable television formats.

    It is alleged the group purchased legitimate media services from several companies and unlawfully distributed it, without authorization, at a considerable discount to the public.

    On June 29, 2021, the RCMP Cybercrime Team executed a search warrant on a retail location of GaloTV, (also known as Soltv). The search warrant resulted in the seizure of a large number of set top boxes (used to decode and decrypt video signals) and hundreds of TV receivers and equipment used to re-broadcast video signals.
