Sun may get suits in exchange of STBs
Advertisement
#1
NEW DELHI: The latest marketing initiative by directto-home (DTH) company Sun Direct that allows subscribers of rival companies to exchange their existing set-top-boxes (STB) for Sun’s hi-definition-enabled service could run into legal troubles.

Rival DTH firms say a large chunk of the set-top-boxes that are supplied to subscribers with new connections is ‘on lease’ and their ownership lies with the DTH Company. The consumer, therefore, cannot opt for the exchange offer and give the box to a third party. Said Dish TV chief operating officer Salil Kapoor, “If the consumer wants to disconnect the service, he can return the box to the DTH service provider.”
