StarTV has launched a new direct-to-home pay-TV service for Mexico.
The new service was launched in late December of 2015. The platform replaces the previous TVZac platform.
“Thanks to the telecommunications reform carried out by the Mexican government and the drive of the Federal Institute of Telecommunications to promote competition, there is an opportunity to provide an alternative satellite TV service,” Stargroup CEO Julio Di-Bella said. “As a socially responsible company, we want to continue to contribute to technological development and access to information in our country, offering quality television in the spirit of TVZac, with the support of our subscribers. Eutelsat has been a key ally and has the coverage and capacity that we need to guarantee the best service to our customers both today and in the future. Working hand in hand, we are excited by the prospect of consolidating our place in the Mexican pay-TV industry.”
The new package will bring national and international channels to consumers.
“The development of DTH services in the Americas is a strategic objective for Eutelsat,” Eutelsat Americas CEO Patricio Northland said. “We are delighted to win the trust of StarTV as a new player in Mexico and to leverage our prime video neighborhood to broaden the pay-TV offer in Mexico and beyond.”
