Telecom Argentina to launch triple-play with DirecTV

27 Apr 2009

Telecom Argentina will launch a triple-play offer of telephony, internet and pay-TV under an agreement with satellite operator DirecTV; fixed line rival Telefonica de Argentina announced a similar tie-up with DirecTV earlier this month. TeleSemana.com reports that Telecom’s triple-play packages will be provided under the SuperPack banner, and in a first phase will only be available in the city of Salta (Salta province), although the company plans to expand to other areas where its broadband network coverage overlaps with DirecTV’s service footprint.
