Police shutdown an IPTV service

According to TorrentFreak, France, Italy, Netherlands and Bulgaria's Police succeeded in shutting down the back end of many IPTV services.
Reportedly,  Xstream-codes.com is the company behind the software systems that run the IPTV services.

And this is an announcement by the EU Agency Eurojust :
“A multi-country action day coordinated by Eurojust in The Hague led to the dismantling of an international criminal network committing massive fraud with pay-TV, which shows organized crime expanding its illegal activities to large-scale violations of audiovisual copyright,” the statement reads.

“The damage caused by the criminal gang amounts to approximately €6.5 million, jeopardizing the existence of many legal providers of pay-TV on the market. More than 200 servers were taken offline in Germany, France and the Netherlands, and over 150 PayPal accounts of the criminals were blocked.”

This is a footage made by Italy's Police claiming to show the raid of the service :
