As it looks to stake out its future, the BBC could be making a strategic mistake in pinning its hopes on personalised content, says analyst Ovum.
Movistar TV claims to have 601,000 subscribers in Chile thanks to spectacular growth in HD subscriptions, representing a 19% growth through the year and reaching 21% of the pay-TV market in the country.
The world's fifth largest pay-TV operator when it comes to subscribers, Mexican telco América Móvil is predicted to add nearly eight million subs through to 2018, surpassing the 21 million barrier in Latin America (of which nearly six million will belong to streaming platform Clarovideo) and grazing 25 million subs worldwide.
