DirecTV Latin America to invest USD 1.45 bln in 2015

Friday 20 February 2015 | 13:12 CET | News
DirecTV Latin America expects total capex for full 2015 to reach nearly USD 1.45 billion, flat compared to the previous year, DirecTV Latin America president Bruce Churchill told a conference call with investors. Churchill said that lower SAC and satellite capex will be offset by the higher investments in the broadband segment. For its PanAmericana division, the company expects to record a gross addition of nearly 1.5-1.6 million subscribers this year, excluding Venezuela. For Sky Brasil, gross subscriber addition will reach nearly 2 million in 2015, the executive said.
