Another Solomon Islands broadcaster has been banned from showing the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The High Court banned a fifth broadcaster from televising any of the World Cup in South Africa last Wednesday.

The SIBC reports Sol-Lanka Pty Limited joins four other defendants who are banned from broadcasting or transmitting footage from any of the FIFA matches until at least the end of this year.

The ruling was made during proceedings between the defendents, and the two claimants - Our Telekom and Solomon Telekom.

The order also covers advertising that features any footage or match highlights.
