Claro, Paraguay’s first DTH pay-TV offering, is targeting 100,000 subscribers over the next two years, and thus offer ‘first mover’ advantage ahead of rival DTH operators expected to be entering the market soon.
DirecTV has been granted a licence to operate DTH services over Paraguay, while Tugo and TuVes HD are two other entrants which have promised service.
“Paraguay is one of the countries recording the lowest Pay-TV penetration rates in the region”. “We are positive that we will be changing that reality soon”, said Luciano Mauroni, general manager of Claro. The company offers two packages: the basic package with 36 channels at $17 and an extended package with 44 channels at a $24.65 monthly fee
