Tigo Star is to launch its direct-to-home (DTH) platform into El Salvador's pay-TV market, thus increasing coverage of its cable service by offering premium TV via satellite.

Through DTH, the Millicom company will add over 100 towns to its network, offering different packages with kids' programming, sports, movies, series and HD signals.

Among the channels included, Tigo will offer soap channels such as Novelísima and Telemundo, exclusive series through HBO, and premium films with Cinemax and Cinecanal. There will also be the option of pay-per-view content.

"Satellite TV has been brought to rural areas, which is why over 100 towns in El Salvador will now enjoy this digital experience," said Marcelo Alemán, Tigo's manager in the country. "This is possible thanks to Tigo's efforts. Despite already having great coverage, we were missing some places, but we are now proud to say we cover 100% of the country."

"It's a step forward to consolidate our leadership in entertainment services," added Juan Coreas, commercial VP of Tigo Star.
