Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi Technology has suspended its set-top box (STB) services a week after it launched the new devices. The set-top box connects internet, mobile devices, and television sets and was reportedly working with unlicensed online video providers. The set-top box is now under investigation by the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), the South China Morning Post writes citing unnamed sources. On its microblog account, Xiaomi said it would stop offering video services due to system maintenance.
