Statement issued over TT+ piracy streams

The paid service was seen being streamed to Facebook Live

The Department for Enterprise has issued a statement after pirated streams of TT+ were seen being broadcast on Facebook Live - some were seen with more than 500 people watching them.

It's the first year fans across the world were able to watch the races live and on-demand.

The service is locked behind a paywall which requires a £15 fee to be paid in order to gain access to it.

The Department for Enterprise says a number of processes were in place to prevent piracy of the coverage and the team actively tried to identify and remove any illegal streams of TT+.
