    El pasado martes 19 de septiembre, los decodificadores HD de Colombia recibieron una una actualizacion version (0x7749) - el resto de paises no se actualizaron, hasta ahora solo Colombia.

    Que cambios trajo?

    La actualizacion 7749 fue directamente a nuevos ajustes en los display de señal, en los decodificadores HD y HD DVR.

    cambios en la red norte (NET4)

    activaron un nuevo transpondedor el 77.

    otro de los cambios visibles en la red norte, es el TPN 81, el cual ya se encuentra visible en los decodificadores HD. Y el TPN 65 paso a N/A en Colombia en el resto de paises sigue con potencia.

    sin duda son cambios que me emocionan mucho y que dan pie a culminar el año con muchas mas novedades.



    translation 9/21:

    Last Tuesday, September 19th, HD decoders from Colombia received an update version (0x7749) - the rest of the countries were not updated, so far only Colombia.

    What changes did he bring?

    The 7749 update went directly to new settings on the signal display, HD decoders and HD DVR.

    changes in the north network (NET4)

    activated a new transponder 77.

    another of the visible changes in the north network, is the TPN 81, which is already visible in HD decoders. And the TPN 65 happened to N / A in Colombia in the rest of countries continues with power.

    no doubt are changes that I am very excited and that give way to culminar the year with many more news.

    Hello friends, greetings from Colombia.
    Today again fresh news appeared on what the future of Directv LA may be.
    Then I will leave the link with more information about this news.
    Liberty Latin America and Telefonica S.A.
    So far they are both interested in acquiring Directv LA and Sky Brasil.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/07/att-...ica-stake.html

    DIRECTV LATÍN AMÉRICA MUNDIAL 2018

    For this global Directv, we prepare for the transmission of matches in 4K, and a possible decoder with integrated netflix and youtube has already been announced. Like access to wifi. It is unknown what model would be. The launch is planned between March and April.
    Do you count in the US with some decoder that integrates these two app (Netflix and Youtube)?

    The C71KW appeared on the FCC site a couple months ago (required in the US for anything that uses wifi or other radio frequencies) It runs on the Android TV platform so it would be able to support Youtube and Netflix. That may be what you're going to get.

    AT&T’s DirecTV Latin America Unit Files for IPO as Prelude to Possible Spinoff

    AT&T filed a registration statement for a potential U.S. initial public offering of shares in DirecTV Latin America business, which the telco said could bring in up to $100 million.

    With an IPO for the holding company for its satellite businesses in South America and the Caribbean, dubbed Vrio Corp., AT&T is potentially setting up the unit for a sale; the DirecTV Latin America assets have been valued at upwards of $10 billion. AT&T is looking at the IPO and potential spinoff to pay down debt as it aims to close the acquisition of Time Warner, which analysts say will push the telco’s debt load to more than $180 billion.

    As of the end of 2017, DirecTV Latin America had about 13.6 million subscribers in South America and the Caribbean — up 9.3% year-over-year, in contrast to the “cord cutter” trend that has beset the U.S. pay-TV market. AT&T cited relatively low penetration of broadband in South America and lower internet-access speeds as limiting Vrio’s exposure to competitive threats of over-the-top streaming video services.

    AT&T would retain majority voting control of Vrio post-IPO. According to AT&T’s filing Wednesday for Vrio, the telco plans to request for a ruling from the IRS that would let AT&T pursue a tax-free spin-off of its remaining interest in our common stock following the IPO. It noted, however, that there’s no guarantee the IRS will grant such a ruling or even that AT&T will decide to proceed with a spinoff of Vrio.

    For full-year 2017, DirecTV Latin America had revenue of $5.57 billion, up 10.9% from the year prior, and net income of $222 million (versus a net loss of $356 million for the 2016).

    Vrio’s businesses operate in eight South American countries and three Caribbean countries: Brazil, under the Sky brand; and, under the DirecTV brand, in Barbados, Colombia, Curaçao, Ecuador, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Uruguay.

    Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Securities, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley will act as the joint book-running managers for the IPO.

    Humph ...

    Does this "Surrender of Authorization" filing mean the future SKYMex-2 satellite (KU-76W) has been cancelled?

    All they are surrendering is the authorization for 76W. They filed a construction bond on the satellite five years ago, so it must be complete or nearly so. The surrender means it won't go to 76W now, so they must have something else in mind for it.

    Here's one theory: They need a new satellite in place at 101 when they do the MPEG2 SD shutdown, because they want to move HD channels onto it that are currently mirrored to PR. T16 won't be ready in time, so they are going to modify this satellite to work at 101, and T16 will end up serving DLA (possibly from 76W...they have surrendered their authorization, but if no one else claims it they can always file for it again and then the five year clock starts over)

    I didn't look at it too closely but it has Ku, Ka and reverse band so it sounds kinda like D15's twin. I have no clue how difficult/expensive reconfiguring it for US use would be, including separate beams for HI & PR. But they might like that plan better than delaying the MPEG2 SD shutdown to wait for T16's LOA date.

    Could be ...

    But with this SOA and the introduction of two new single slot LNBs for SKY Mex. service labled as for 79W or 58W. I wonder if the plans for a second satellite at 76W has been shelved for some reason.
