At the beginning of 2010, the operator Sistem Cable from Venezuela, which records 11,000 subscribers in the capital city of Caracas, started its DVB-C migration with the American firm April Digital, which has its own system. According to what Rubén Yuskowich, Sistema Cable President, told NexTV Latam, two thousand STBs have already been installed and some "four thousand devices" are expected to reach the country.
In 2003, Sistema Cable coded its analog operation with Motorola given "high illegality indexes" and "constant channel robbery", Yuskowich explained. At present, Motorola devices are being replaced "in stages" - about 28,000 already installed devices - by April Digital STBs. On the other hand, the EPG is provided by the Argentine company DataFactory for its digital service.
According to Yuskowich, the decision to digitalize gradually results not only from costs but also the impossibility to have access to the American currency, in face of the Exchange control existing in the country. According to data recorded as of 2010 first semester in Venezuela, 2,21 million Pay-TV subscribers were recorded. The DTH DirecTV and cable operators Inter, NetUno and Supercable are the main operators of such country.
