As reported in the Coast Rider Newspaper on 17th April 2012
Amidst mounting pressure from the Director planning permission at Orihuela Town Hall Torresat MUST take down the massive ugly satellite antennas that are being used to re-broadcast pirated UK TV to over 80'000 British subscribers on the Costa Blanca. With panic starting to set in many residence ae now looking to ditch the pirated re-broadcasted service in favour of FREESAT TV that comes direct from the satellite and not a big aerial next door to Orihuela Town Hall.
A local resident said "That massive Ariel on the roof of the Torresat building is huge it must be 5 metres high, on a windy day we can see it dangerously moving in the wind, if it blows off and lands on the main road people could be killed. It is so dangerous!
Many customers have been complaining of poor signals and boxes freezing recently, perhaps Torresat have decided not to spend any more money as they are faced with imminent closure!
