New Brazilian DTH operator launches

October 1, 2014

Brazilian ISP Unotel Telecom has launched a DTH service. Long-expected (it first announced the scheme back in 2012), the service has signed up some 180 local retail partners across Brazil to help promote the package.

Unotel claims it has about 3.5 million corporate and residential customers hooked up to its 16,000 km fibre-optic network, and local reports say that it is spending some $25 million on the roll-out of its DTH bouquet.

The new scheme will see the DTH system come together in the user’s hybrid set-top box where both incoming Broadband and DTH signals will be combined. Nagra is providing CA.
