Ecuador is to have a new DTH operator after Cuenca City’s Municipal Company (Etapa) announced it will launch Etapa EP TV in the last quarter of 2012.

Juan Cordova, Etapa’s telecommunications manager, said this would be the first product the municipal company will offer, after the National Telecommunications Council (Conatel) gave it permission in 2011 to provide services at a national level.

Once the company gets the necessary documentation, negotiations with digital TV providers will be established to make proposals that guarantee access to the product to most of the users, especially in Cuenca.
