Convergence has been the primary buzzword in telecoms for more than a decade, but perhaps we can say that the idea officially passed from being a trend to being the new norm in 2Q12, when América Móvil bumped DirecTV out of top spot as the region's largest pay-TV provider. With the advent of Platform-as-a-Service offerings, it is easier than ever for any telco or ISP to add TV to its service portfolio, and local regulations are the only hindrance. The latest BNamericas Telecom Intelligence Series report explores the many ways in which Latin America's pay-TV arena is becoming ever more competitive.
INCLUDED IN THIS MONTH' EDITION:
Some Latin American countries with relatively late analog switch-off schedules are working well in advance to ensure access to DTT service in neglected areas by distributing subsidized set top boxes (STBs).
Mobile and multi-screen
The number of people confirming that they use a smartphone, laptop, tablet or other device to watch TV content outside the home (whether live or side-loaded) is on the increase.
Although some parts of Latin America have had IPTV operators for several years, such as UNE in Colombia and Telsur in Chile, late- 2012 to mid-2013 is proving to be a key period for proliferation of IPTV operators.
