Vodafone Spain backtracks on monthly STB charge

Tuesday 23 May 2017 | 08:41 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has finally decided not to charge new users a EUR 3 monthly fee for its 4K UHD set-top box, reports website Neeo. The operator was due to start charging the rental fee on 20 May, having justified the charge on the basis of its investment in new pay-TV content and 4K technology, including five dedicated channels. Vodafone began rolling out its new TiVO 4K STB earlier this year, promising an improved interface and easy access to HBO, Netflix as well as catch-up content and cloud-based recordings.
