Telecom giant América Móvil has been allowed to change its statute in Argentina, preparing for an eventual pay-TV operation in the country.

buenos aires 11 september 2017From January 2018, telcos will be allowed to offer pay-TV in Argentina following a new legal framework that aims to boost services and technology convergence.

And the big players are already making their moves to enter a very mature and solid pay-TV market, with Cablevision and Telecom Argentina having already agreed a merger.

Now, according to the Argentinean telecom authority Enacom, América Móvil’s Claro is able to broaden its corporate purpose to include audiovisual services. Currently, the company offers mobile and fixed voice and broadband services.

So Claro’s new statute includes “delivering video communication services, which will comprise any kind of platform, system or technology currently available or future”.

Even though América Móvil has not confirmed any pay-TV plans yet, it has completed this necessary first step to delivering video convergent services in Argentina.
