Movistar TV launches in Argentina

Spanish telco Telefónica has launched an OTT service in Argentina.

Entitled Movistar TV, the new service will initially be available in the southern zone of Buenos Aires offering a package of 120 channels that will include sports content.

Telefónica’s fibre network currently reaches around 1.5 million customers in this area and the new service will compete against the established Cablevisión-Telecom platform.

The launch has been made possible through new regulations introduced by the National Communications Agency (Enacom) permitting Telefónica and fellow telco Claro to offer such services.
