While operators are fleecing customers by charging inflated prices for a set-top box (STB), a MSO at Domalguda, Himayathnagar, Gandhinagar and Chikkadpally is offering latest model STB for a deposit of just Rs.399 with the cable operator. The amount is refundable for any reason. The actual cost of this STB is Rs.2,000.

MSOs – Digi Cable, Citi Cable, Hathaway and ‘C’ Cable- are offering an STB between Rs.1,000 and Rs.1,200.
