Spor TV controversy

Around February 2007, SportTV stopped broadcasting to TVTEL subscribers, causing a major outcry. SportTV justified the move by stating that TVTEL hadn't already start broadcasting exclusively with digital encryption. TVTEL later placed a caption on the channel saying "A SportTV não deixa que a TVTEL cresca, por que será?" (SportTV doesn't allow TVTEL to grow, how come?). It is worth mentioning that SportTV is 50% owned by former competitor (than it's new owner) ZON TVCabo.

This controversy was somewhat similar to that of Virgin Media vs BSkyB.
