DirecTV had to close its operations in Venezuela at the request of the United States. Shortly before, CANTV TV was out of service due to the blackout of the Venesat satellite. DirecTV was the leading operator with almost two million subscribers and CANTV was third with around 600 thousand accounts. Very few of those subscribers will find a new provider. Due to the lack of dollars in the country, for years there has been no availability of new set top boxes. And with an ARPU of around $ 1, there are few attractive business opportunities. The Latin American DTH market suffers an impact of just over 8% of its base. So, in just two months, that technology lost almost the same as in the last two years.
