TATT recently signalled its intention begin consultations for the regulation of android boxes.

This after subscription providers lobbied for the Authority to regulate the service after they reported dwindling sales from $1.8M in the last quarter of 2016 to $184M during the same period in 2017.

They plan to suggest possible banning importation of the devices under the Copyright Act.
