Spark surely new the fraility of hybrid and would surely have known the end of the licence period. But they witheld this information from there customers and kept selling units. How is that right?
companies can make forecasts at to the lifecycle acceptance and viability of a service, however, they cannot see into the future. I do (I owned a TiVo up to a year ago) believe that Spark has not acted inappropriately in this case. TiVo did not gain the traction in NZ as it has in other markets, possible due to a lack of interest or a very strong incumbent service provider, I believe both.
