Netflix, Amazon, and the major film studios have once again joined forces to sue the maker of a TV service and hardware device, alleging that the products are designed to illegally stream copyrighted videos.

The lawsuit was filed against the company behind Set TV, which sells a $20-per-month TV service with more than 500 channels.
