Argentina set to open up satellite TV for operators - report

Thursday 16 November 2017 | 11:17 CET | News
Argentina's telecommunications operators may finally be allowed to offer satellite television and other pay-TV services to consumers by the end of the year, according to an unnamed source at the country's communications watchdog Enacom cited by Reuters. The new rule will pave the way for the inclusion of satellite TV services in operator packages, said the report, with satellite TV operators also likely to be allowed to offer internet services.
