Brazilian pay TV operator Claro (América Móvil) reported that it began offering Conmebol TV to its residential internet subscribers (Claro Net Virtual). The new premium channel was officially launched last week and broadcasts matches from Conmebol Libertadores, Conmebol Sudamericana and Conmebol Recopa.
With the news, the new channel, produced and programmed by Band Sports, extends the possibility of hiring it to more households. During the first days after the launch, the TV channel was available for Claro, Net (America Movil) and Sky (AT&T) pay TV subscribers. The channel broadcasts matches of Conmebol’s competitions on pay TV after Globo and DAZN’s decision to cancel their partnership agreements with Conmebol for the broadcasting rights of the Libertadores and Sudamericana cups. Days before launching Conmebol TV, the entity agreed with SBT to broadcast Copa Libertadores matches on FTA TV in Brazil.
Access to Conmebol TV for Claro’s residential internet customers can be done through the OTT Now, both from its web version and from its applications. To enter, a R$ 39.90 (USD 7) monthly subscription must be paid.
