    Eir and Virgin in dispute over Apple TV services
    October 25, 2019 11.27 Europe/London By Julian Clover
    Eir and Virgin Media could be heading for the courts over Eirís new Apple TV-based TV service.
    Last week, Eir announced it would offer customers a new Apple TV 4K set-top, preloaded with its own app and those of Irelandís top free-to-air channels.
    But on Tuesday, Virgin began proceedings in the High Court in Dublin, claiming its channels had been included without prior permission.
    Eir says it wanted to base its future around on demand content.
    However, there is disagreement over whether the inclusion of Virginís channels count under the same regulation as is used for distribution over satellite and cable networks.
    In a statement, Virgin Media told Broadband TV News: ďEirís insistence to include Virgin Media Television channels on their new Apple TV service, without prior approval, has left us with no other option but to issue legal proceedings to protect our rights and the rights of our content providers.Ē
    BTN has approached Eir for comment.

    Re: Eir and Virgin in dispute over Apple TV services

    This seems to stetch longer than we think.. Internet and television provider Virgin Media is preparing for a High Court showdown with rival operator Eir. The dispute centres on the inclusion of Virgin Media's free-to-air television channels on Eir's new Apple TV 4K set- top box, which was launched last week. Virgin has vidmate claimed the channels were included in the newly revamped service without its approval, but it is understood Eir does not believe approval was needed. Legal proceedings were initiated by Virgin Media Television Limited against Eircom Limited in the High Court on Tuesday. In a statement to the Irish Independent, a spokesperson for Virgin Media said: "Eir's insistence to include Virgin Media Television channels on their new Apple TV service, without prior approval, has left us with no other option but to issue legal proceedings to protect our rights and the rights of our content providers."

    Internet and television provider Virgin Media has settled its action against Eir, who it claimed was in breach of copyright when it included Virgin's free-to-air channels on Eir's Apple TV 4k set-top box.
