Turns out this is an April Fool Joke – One thing for sure is that it epitomises that we were not shocked by the headline but rather capitulated as we have been through several similar events over many years. Haha!
When I worked at a STB Company in Switzerland I was asked to make a plan of attack for entering the market with a range of STBs for Digital TV. We were all lined up having even satisfied one of the rules imposed at the time which was the need for a BEE in order to move things forward business wise. It never happened then and it isn’t going happen for any STB Company now, in this fine year of 2015 – Looks like my work is still valid but for a few minor tweaks. Maybe I will be dusting it off in 2020 for another nostalgic look. LOL
