TV Azteca Expands DTV Network With Jampro Antennas
Mexican broadcaster TV Azteca
recently ordered three Jampro Antennas Inc.
DTV systems — two Jampro Prostar broadband UHF slot antennas, designed to combine several UHF channels over a segment of the UHF bands IV and V, and a Jampro JHD broadband VHF panel antenna.
The order enables TV Azteca to expand its number of DTV channels to 15, all of which incorporate Jampro antennas, combiners, mask filters, antenna switch frames and Jampro Proline transmission line.
The TV Azteca network has national coverage throughout Mexico and is also available in parts of the southern United States. Its subsidiary, Azteca America
, is among the fastest growing television networks in the United Sates.
Earlier this year, the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC
) approved Azteca 13 as a third-language channel to broadcast via digital paid TV across Canada. The network also operates Azteca 13 Internacional
, which reaches 13 countries in Central and South America.
