A Mexican federal court has provisionally suspended a ban on sales and imports of Roku set-top boxes in the country, reports business daily El Economista. The company subsequently issued a statement welcoming the decision and saying it was now working with local suppliers to restore retail sales of its devices. Mexico City's High Court of Justice had previously blocked retail sales of Roku STBs after Televisa-controlled cable provider Cablevision complained that the OTT devices were being hacked to give viewers access to its subscription content for free.
