According to what Osvaldo Nemirovsci, general coordinator of the Argentine DTT Digital TV System, told NexTV Latam, the Argentine Government has already delivered 121,000 free DTT STBs in Buenos Aires province. The executive stated that an average of 1,500 devices is sorted out on a daily basis by Argentine mail. Coradir, one of the providers for this initiative, has already delivered the Government about 250,000 STBs out of the 510,000 acquired by such company.
STBs distribution will be extended over other areas of the country, once the 47 broadcasting antenna first installation plan is finished. According to what Nemirovsci informed, within the following 60 days, facilities will be operating in Campana, Baradero and Luj?n, located in Buenos Aires province. Before year end, La Plata, Resistencia (Chaco province) and San Miguel de Tucum?n (Tucum?n province) facilities will be ready.
"Coradir provides Correo Argentino 20,000 STBs weekly", Juan Baretto, VP of the company told NexTV Latam. Devices are manufactured in San Luis province. STBs are sold to the public for USD 176 in two sale points (in San Luis and Buenos Aires). The company also sells 34 inches TV sets fitted with ISDB-T tuner for USD 860.
In addition to Coradir, the Metallurgic Industry Association of the Argentine Republic and Cometrans are also local providers. It is estimated that by 2012 about 100 broadcasting facilities, which will offer coverage to the 95% of the territory, will be built. The service for the remaining 5% will be rendered via satellite. The installation of antennas and STBs in 8,100 rural schools is scheduled for satellite TV reception. According to the Government, in March 2011, there will be 2,000 already equipped schools.
