Brazil deems Dreamboxes and similar illegal
So-called ‘Dreamboxes’, the STBs that can illegally access scrambled pay-TV signals, have been banned in Brazil. The country’s Federal Justice Ministry is backing moves by the Brazilian Pay-TV Association to have the boxes outlawed.
The Ministry has specifically named one such device, the AZBox, as being to blame for losses of some US$53 million in lost revenues. There are an estimated 500,000-700,000 illegal boxes in use in Brazil. Other devices include the Luxusbox, Azamerica box and others, all of which are now deemed illegal.
