The Colombian government has warned about the illegal sales of STBs for in-the-clear satellite TV offerings.

According to the Television National Commission (CNT), although this phenomenon is mainly occurring with in-the-clear channels, it is also an issue for satellite pay-TV operators such as DirectTV and Telefónica Telecom, through its Colombian subsidiary Colombia Telecomunicaciones.

Now the CNT will start an investigation to look into the illegal STBs network with a view to instigate court proceedings.
