6 Mar 2009

According to Enciclomedios, Spanish-owned telco Telefonica and satellite TV provider DirecTV are discussing the possibility of launching a joint triple-play service in Argentina. The service will include TV, internet and telephony services, according to Guillermo Delfino, marketing manager of DirecTV. Talks began over two months ago, and currently focus on the idea of certain departments within the two operators cooperating together to issue the bills. A commercial launch date has not yet been decided on, or whether a pilot phase will be rolled out.
