'Ziggo newest Mediabox Next is old wine in a new jug'

Just like the current version, Ziggo ‘s new Mediabox Next will be a hybrid decoder in which DVB-C and IPTV come together. This is apparent from a publication by Telenet, which has meanwhile started supplying the same new decoder to customers. The functionality of both decoders is the same. There are some minor hardware changes. Also, the new version of Mediabox Next is made by another manufacturer. Liberty Global is the client for making the new decoder. This company has an interest of almost sixty percent in Telenet. In the Netherlands, it owns half of VodafoneZiggo, of which Ziggo is part. Liberty Global is responsible for the TV and internet services at both Ziggo and Telenet.
