Argentina permits Claro and Telefonica to offer pay-TV

Monday 8 January 2018 | 09:21 CET | News
Argentina's telecommunications regulator Enacom has finally authorised Claro (America Movil) and Telefonica to offer pay-TV services in specific cities throughout the country, allowing them to launch quad-play packages for the first time. Local cable TV provider Supercanal de Mendoza would also be allowed to offer mobile phone service, said the watchdog, adding that the licences were part of a series of measures designed to "open the convergence market in the country, ensuring the diversity of service offerings for users".
