A few months ago saw the launch of a new satellite TV service for Spain called Starmax. It offered a smal;l selection of channels, some in HD.
However since it launch there have been various complaints from people about its service, including the lack of a functioning EPG.
However, this Friday 1st July the cannels they carry cease transmission.
Many users started to report that even though they had paid their subscription, there was no satellite signal being received.
Over the hours the following events have been noticed:
1. The Starmax Facebook page has been disabled.
2. The official website of Starmax no longer allows you to activate a viewing cared – instead you have to call them by phone.
3. At 17:00 pm on Sunday, some 48 hours with no signal, there was a message informing users that the disruption is due to technical problems at Starmax.
So either they have some severe technical problems, or perhaps they have not kept up-to-date with payments to their satellite provider.
