What is going on at starhub?
I received a mailer the other day telling me that starhub cable tv is ending in seven months.
In the mailer there was a small advertisement for fibre tv set top boxes.
I went down to Starhub's service centre in Vivo city to try to find out what new alternatives and packages are available. The staff at the service centre told me that the only alternative now is starhub go streaming box.
It is something completely different from what I had expected. It is a streaming device which uses my internet bandwidth to provide me with content. I looked around the service center, and there was only Starhub go streaming box.
I went online to starhub's website and there was only one option, starhub go streaming box. There was no mention of any other device or set top box. There was no option or link on the website from which i can be directed to some information on fibre tv set top boxes. I had to do a direct google search of fibre tv set top box to be able to find a link to this information. Even then, i am unable to find the root page this product information came from.
Does this mean that fibre tv set top boxes are not ready when we are 7 months from completely cutting out our current service?
Are current new customers suckered into an expensive and data hungry 24 month contract if they unknowingly sign up for starhub streaming go now? Only to be later mortified by the dedicated bandwidth fibre tv set top boxes which might be coming out soon?
Or is it starhub's plan to phase out cable tv set top boxes and fibre tv set top boxes as well, forcing everyone to convert to starhub streaming go plans?
