Dish Mexico to appeal against regulator's Televisa ruling

Thursday 8 October 2015 | 10:59 CET | News
Satellite TV provider Dish Mexico has pledged to appeal against the recent decision of the country's telecoms watchdog IFT to withdraw Televisa's dominant player status in the pay-TV market. The IFT last week stated that due to changes in the market, above all the growth of rivals such as Dish and Megacable, Televisa no longer has the status of a preponderant agent in pay-TV. However, in a statement Dish said the regulator missed a chance to promote competition in a market in which Televisa still retains a 62 percent share, even if it has dipped from 64 percent in September 2013.
