Concern over lack of interactive STB’s

José Luis Vázquez, CEO of interactive TV company Mirada, recently commented that up until now there are only a few interactive boxes which allow access to advanced TV services in the country, reports Rapid TV News.
Spain’s homes already have more than 14 million DTT boxes but only 250,000 are suitable for interactive services.
DTT coverage has reached 90% with penetration at 45.1% according to recent figures.
Vázquez used the UK as an example of a country where interactive services have taken off and put this down to the fact that interactive functions are the norm for the STB’s being sold.
