Brazil’s DTT Set Top Boxes still very expensive

Despite earlier reports that DTT Set Top boxes in Brazil were commonly available for R$199, said to be expensive at the time, this price is still just a dream for consumers.
In fact the cheapest low end device now available two and a half years since the launch of the ISDB-T is much more, at around R$299, with the average price of boxes still at R$500. For a top of the range box you would need to spend around R$1000.
