ATVC adds DirecTV as member

Argentina’s cable association ATVC announced that it has added DirecTV as a member. In addition, the entity renewed its authorities until 2020. Walter Burzaco continues as president.
“The addition of DirecTV is an example of the pluralism and full representation that ATVC has built over almost four decades defending the industry, freedom of expression and national integration,” the association said in a statement.
ATVC gathers more than 700 pay TV companies throughout the country. The provincial pay television associations of La Pampa, Entre Ríos, Santa Fe, Buenos Aires and Córdoba are also members.
In the new Board of Directors, which has a mandate until 2020, there are representatives of Telecentro, Supercanal and Red Intercable, among others. Jorge Di Blasio and Armando Ametrano remain as 1st and 2nd vice-presidents, respectively, while Telecentro’s Juan Zuccoli is now secretary general and Hernán Verdaguer is pro-secretary.
