Argentina’s OTT platform Vesvi appears to have gone bust. Its service has been off air since January, and despite an on-screen message telling users that “We are working for you”, it seems that the service has closed.
Local reports say that subscriptions have been cancelled.
Vesvi launched in November 2011 (and followed Netflix which had launched in September 2011). The business is owned by Argentina’s Hadad family, which has former journalist and media personality Daniel Hadad. He currently owns a portfolio of radio stations.
Vesvi had negotiated accessibility agreements with Samsung, Philips and LG for their ranges of ‘smart’ TVs.
