Mexico: Sell ten million TVs
Sales of TV sets will be worth $5 billion, between next year and 2020, assuming that each household in central Mexico buys a new digital TV in this period, at an average cost of $500.
As of 2015, the analogy formar for transmitting television signals will be replaced by digital, which is more efficienr, and offers many additional services.
The digital format wll already installed by the end of this year, in the northern border zone and in the city of Monterrey.
But that still leaves about 10 million Mexican households, whose televisions will not work, following digital conversion in the rest of the country.
Some households will buy a cheap box, which translates the digital signal to analog, in which case they can retain the old TVs.
On the other hand, others will buy more than one new set.
The Mexican government will invest about $ 1.5 billion as part of the transition.
