Venezuela, Brazil and Mexico were the markets that recorded the highest loss of subscribers.
For the first quarter of 2018, América Móvil remained the main pay-TV group in Latin America in terms of subscribers. Although América Móvil held 19.2% of subscribers, its dominance had declined due to the weight of Brazil in its portfolio.
DirecTV, owned by AT & T, was the second operator measured for subscribers but the largest in terms of revenue. Televisa closed the podium with a good mass of subscribers but a very low ARPU.
Although DTH accounted for 48.7% of the subscribers, it was the technological option that was most affected by the reduction of the subscriber base. Meanwhile, cable and IPTV exhibited some progress.
