In an effort to more closely align with priorities for future consolidated strategies against content piracy, the organization Alianza (Contra Piratería de Televisión Paga) announced its restructuring, with the creation of an executive board of officers.
The executive board will be comprised of members from DIRECTV, Discovery, ESPN, FOX, Globo, HBO, and Turner – a group of content providers, pay-TV broadcasters and technology providers in Latin America, working together to create a framework for broader collaboration in the fight against pay-TV piracy.
Serving as the first-term president for Alianza’s executive board is Javier Figueras, CVP of Affiliate Relations for HBO Latin America. The participating members of Alianza include ABTA, CDF, DIRECTV Latin America, Discovery, ESPN, Fox, Globo, HBO Latin America, LaLiga, Nagra, SKY Brazil, Telecine, Turner, and WinSports.
“The time is now to advance our efforts against piracy, a critical issue that has been a plague to the entire entertainment industry – and shows no sign of slowing down. With the restructuring of Alianza, we are strengthening our united front between existing members, while inviting other major players in the industry to join our efforts in preventing piracy, protecting our content, and punishing the criminals that profit heavily off the creative content industry,” said Figueras.
