Leading Operators Throughout Latin America Bringing Free-To-Air TV to Consumers With Telegent-Enabled TV Handsets

Claro Argentina launches the first TV phone that allows consumers to follow soccer matches and other favorite programs without additional cost

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Telegent Systems, the company that makes television mobile with its high-performance, single-chip mobile TV solutions, today announced accelerating adoption by leading operators throughout Latin America of mobile phones with a free-to-air TV feature enabled by Telegent.

Since December of last year, subsidiaries of America Movil and Telefonica that are the leading operators in their country - including Telcel in Mexico, Claro Argentina, COMCEL Colombia, and Movistar in Mexico and Peru - have deployed multiple models of Telegent-enabled TV handsets that allow consumers to receive live, free-to-air broadcast TV programs - without additional cost.

"We are always seeking new innovations for our customers. As the official sponsor of our national soccer team, the phone with free-to-air TV that we have launched enables our customers to view our team's matches in the preparation for South Africa 2010," said Fernando del Rio, business director of Claro.

Free-to-air TV phones provide an additional benefit to operators - because the phones leverage the existing broadcast ecosystem and TV content, operators are able to deliver the TV feature to customers without a significant financial investment in infrastructure and content licensing, and customers are able to access TV on their mobile without having to pay more for a service.

"A significant market exists for consumers who want the familiar TV content and broadcast delivery available on free-to-air TV handsets," said Anna Maxbauer, market analyst with IMS Research. "IMS estimates market demand for analog TV handsets at more than 150 million units in 2013."
