Lagos also revealed that the company already offers digital services in Mendoza and expects to launch the offering in the provinces of San Juan and Santiago del Estero in the short term; the company expects to end 2010 with approximately 30,000 digital TV clients nationwide. Supercanal currently has operations in Tucuman, Catamarca, Santiago del Estero, Santa Fe, La Rioja, San Juan, Cordoba, San Luis, Neuquen, Rio Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego provinces.
