TV Station in the Philippines Airs a Bootlegged Copy of "Avengers: Endgame"

If you are a struggling TV station - ya know a good way to boost ratings?

Air one of the biggest movies of all time - the day after it comes out.

Of course, that's also a good way to go to jail

From Vice:

For some viewers in Dipolog, Zamboanga del Norte in the Philippines, it’s pretty much what happened. Orient Cable, a local cable provider, had the genius idea of showing Endgame a day after its premiere in the Philippines.

To make matters worse, based on the photos of the airing on social media, it’s abadcopy. It’s like something straight out of a sketchy torrent site filled with pop-ups. (It probably did come from one). As they should, Orient Cable is getting sued by local movie house Teatro de Dapitan,according to a report by the Philippine News Agency, because of the blatant piracy.

Yikes
