The DBox is a DVB satellite,
terrestrial and cable digital TV decoder
(set top box). They were distributed widely for use with Pay TelevisionDVB-capable receiver to be produced and
distributed in large quantity. It was commissioned by the Kirch group's DF1, an
early German provider of digital television that later merged with Premiere. The
hardware was developed and produced by Nokia though later also produced by Philips and Sagem under licence. channels. The DBox-1 was the first

In 2001,
following the bankruptcy of Kirch Media, production of the D-box ceased. However, there
continues to be a large number of devices traded second-hand (often using
online auction sites) and fairly high prices are paid. This can be attributed
to the fact that alternative operating systems can be loaded onto the boxes.
For this reason, there are also a significant number of, mostly German
language, web sites and forums devoted to the devices.
