Licensees of two Burnley pubs have been arrested in an investigation into foreign satellite football screening.
Lancashire Police questioned two licensees in relation to suspected offences under the Fraud Act and the Copyright Designs & Patents Act.
Police also seized equipment used to receive Premier League matches via the internet and devices used to receive matches through foreign decoder cards. The two unnamed hosts have been bailed until February.
Ray Hoskin of Media Protection Services, which investigates foreign satellite screenings, said: "We have paid covert visits to many licensed premises in the area and information on further possible offences is being examined."
