Police begin investigation into illegal Korean streaming website

Police have started an investigation into the popular illegal streaming website noonoo TV, the Busan Metropolitan Police Agency’s cyber team announced Thursday.

“We are investigating the suspect, in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and other related organizations and with foreign cooperation,” according to police.

The Alliance for Protection of Videogram (AVP) — formed by Korean broadcasting companies, streaming services, movie producers and distributors in February — announced on March 8 that it has filed a complaint to sue noonoo TV.

AVP claimed that despite multiple attempts to block access to the site, the illegal streaming service is still in operation after bypassing restrictions, having garnering 1.5 billion total views in February 2023 — higher than legal streaming services. The alliance also pointed out that the illegal service is profiting off of illegal gambling site advertisements. Korea Joong Ang Daily
