    Starmax HD closes down

    Starmax HD closes down

    Iñaki Ferreras ©RapidTVNews | 28-12-2011

    Six months after the Starmax HD satellite platform disappeared from Spanish screens , the UK investment group behind it has closed down its operations.

    Starmax HD worked under no permanent contracts and by prepaid card. In its ephemeral history the pay-TV platform offered channels including the BBC, Entertainment, MGM HD, Film Box, Film Box Spain, CTK, Xtrm, We, Eurosport HD, Eurosport 2, KidsCo, Discovery HD and Natura World.
    The IVRA Ferguson Model TS100 Starmax HD decoder enabled subscribers to stop live broadcasts and offer rewind/fast broadcasting with access to DVB-S and DVB-S2 satellite signals as well as DTT (DVB-T), all in both SD and HDTV.
    Starmax HD is reported to have given the order to liquidate Spanish company Telecommunications Anvimur's terminals.

    Starmax HD to return after closedown

    Starmax HD to return after closedown

    10.10 Europe/London, December 28, 2011 By Chris Dziadul

    The Spanish prepaid DTH platform Starmax HD is closing down operations but has promised to come back with “a more attractive and technically more solid offer”.

    The platform was offering a line-up of 12 HD channels on the Hispasat satellite but has now ceased operations. Viewers needed to get a dedicated Starmax HD receiver, capable of receiving DVB-S and DVB-S2/MPEG-4 broadcasts as well as DVB-T.
    The service was originally announced in March 2011 and has only been on the market for a few months. It competed with Digital+, IPTV provider Imagenio and cable operator ONO.
    However, according to an ‘official statement’ on the company’s website, the platform plans to return with a better offer – inviting customers to come up with ideas on how to improve the service.
    Current customers are offered a refund of paid subscription fees as well as a technical software update of their receiver in order to be able to continue to use the device as a multimedia player and satellite receiver for the free-to-air channels on Hispasat.
