DirecTV Inc. announced Tuesday the criminal indictments of four men charged with distributing illegal DirecTV access cards.

The indictments follow an investigation by the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service, which was aided by DirecTV's office of signal integrity.

Canadian citizen Bill Rath was arrested and released on bail last week in Ontario, and he may face extradition to the United States. Other defendants include Mike Hill of Anderson, S.C.; Jeff Sanders of Shelbyville, Tenn.; and Gregg Chaffin of Franklin Furnace, Ohio.

Income from the venture was allegedly funneled to an offshore bank account, which was uncovered by DirecTV's office of signal integrity.
