DirecTV Argentina (AT&T) has begun trialling a DTH TV service in the Buenos Aires province, reports website iProfesional. The service uses the Ka-band communications payload of the US parent company's Spaceway F2 satellite, which offers better broadband capacity than the Ku band at lower prices, said the report. Although the pilot is limited to 5,000 homes and DirecTV secured temporary permission to carry out the trials, rival operators are set to ask telecommunications regulator Enacom to review DirecTV's rights to provide DTH services, added the report.
