PJ police in Portugal have announced that it has taken action to block the illegal streaming of football matches of major leagues via the Mobdro mobile application.

In a cross-border action that involved law enforcement from Portugal, Spain and the Czech Republic, users would be able to watch matches from the Premier League, the La Liga and Portugal’s own national Liga. Four arrests have been made, with Europol saying other illegal streaming networks have been identified during the operation code-named Steamblock.
