Bhaalu works on comeback

Thursday 5 March 2015 | 10:56 CET | News
The cloud DVR provider Bhaalu is working quietly on a comeback, pending the outcome of an appeal against copyright suits brought against the company by broadcasters. The service was banned by a Belgian court last year, after broadcasters such as VRT claimed Bhaalu did not have the rights to retransmit their content. Bhaalu's owner Right Brain has appealed the decision. The company said it was working on restoring the "Bhaalu experience" with its own content and access to YouTube and Viewster. It's also in talks with TV channels and operators on adding more content.
