Claro prevails in Uruguay pay-TV case

Friday 15 December 2017 | 14:01 CET | News
A court has cleared the way for Claro Uruguay (America Movil) to finally offer pay-TV services after ruling that its DTH licence is valid, reports local daily El Pais. The country's civil appellate court accepted the operator's appeal against the Uruguayan regulator Ursec's decision to revoke the DTH licence granted back in October 2008, agreeing with Claro's grounds that Ursec's decision harmed competition in the market. Claro will now be able to launch DTH services in Uruguay similar to those already provided by AT&T's DirecTV satellite television unit.
