It is reported in BCE paper The Globe & Mail that BCE owned Expressvu is in merger talks with Shaw owned Star Choice.Originally posted by mnassour
One possible problem....this would lead to Charlie being the sole equipment supplier to StarChoice up in Canada, an oddball relationship since he would then be the equipment supplier to the competitor of his partner up there, ExpressVu.
And we may want to remember that New Echostar may not be buying DC for its business (i.e., the cable company sales) but rather the product for the DBS market.
In any of these articles, has anyone mentioned a purchase price for Motorola's DC Division?
The reason is that the Hu card is as badly compromised as the H card ever was. In fact, BOTH of the DBS systems have severe security problems....hence, the interest in Digicipher. Hu users on other boards have already reported receiving the new card, so the swap is indeed under way.Originally posted by Jacob S
I can see them swapping the H cards but not all the HU cards when it was not long ago when they were replacing those H cards with the HU cards and this merger is soon apon us. Before they would have them all swapped or just shortly thereafter they would have to be swapped again for another new standard.
