Paraguayan state-owned operator Copaco will launch its long-planned IPTV service in December 2011, available as part of a triple-play product suite, also including fixed telephony and broadband internet access.
The new offering, which will be offered across the company’s existing broadband network footprint, will comprise 90 TV channels, including ten HD channels.
According to Copaco president Mario Esquivel, the operator also hopes to offer Paraguayan football coverage on a pay-per-view basis, although the plan is subject to Copaco agreeing broadcasting rights.
