Venezuela’s Inter cable MSO has confirmed it will launch a satellite DTH pay-TV service this August. Eduardo Stigol, president of Inter, told local journalists that there were already hundreds of beta-testers using the company’s equipment.
June 21st will see the system launched officially. Inter will then be country’s 4thDTH player (behind DirecTV, CANTV and MovieStar). Inter’s aim is to see it reaching 100 per cent of the nation, and to compliment its current triple-play offer.
Inter’s service (TuVes HD) will use satellite capacity on Telstar-12.
