Federal authorities in New York say the operator of a website that stole and streamed telecasts of sporting events has been arrested in Texas.
The 32-year-old is accused in a New York federal case of running a website that streamed sports and pay-per-view events illegally and made more than $90,000 from advertisers.
The channelsurfing.net website was seized by federal authorities last month.
Prosecutors say the site pirated telecasts of broadcasts of National Football League games, wrestling matches and ultimate fighting events.
McCarthy's phone number in Deer Park isn't listed. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
A notice on the website last month told users it was seized by "homeland security."
