No one will be able to watch the Mad Catz CS:GO Invitational matches via GOTV from now on, after a password was set on all relays.
Last week, FACEIT TV was announced as the official stream partner of the Austrian event, which is taking place at the Imperial Riding School Renaissance in Vienna, with former fnatic talent Björn "threat" Pers among the casters of the tournament.
But since GOTV service was allowed, just about everyone could stream the matches, and all they had to do was connect to the public GOTV relays.
Heaven Media had a deal with Starladder.TV in which the latter would not be allowed to stream Natus Vincere's match against TeamCRG, forcing thousands of CIS fans to look for another way to follow the games.
But as the Ukrainian team started playing against the British side, Starladder.TV ignored the deal and began to stream the match, much to the disbelief of Heaven Media, who decided to put password on all GO TV relays.
In order to watch the matches, you will have to do it through the official FACEIT TV stream, or through one of the other streams with which Heaven Media has an understanding.
A statement on the matter will be released shortly.
