We had a similar problem with the Dutch KPN interactive tv six years ago, and as members of the Dutch WP community contacted the tv provider KPN, who referred us to Metrological <https://www.metrological.com/> for the issue. Metrological has been very responsive and with the next update of the tv app the copyright claim was replaced by a cc-by-sa notice for all three tv providers (KPN, Telfort and XS4All) they served. As I mentioned, this was in 2016, and I have no idea how the situation is nowadays, but back then just sending an email and reaching out about the wrong copyright claim worked for us.
