Digitimes Research: Foxconn stands chance of winning Mexico government LCD TV procurement orders
Tom Lo, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 13 August 2014]

The Mexico government will hold an open bid to procure 13.7 million LCD TVs over three years as part of a subsidy program for low-income families in line with the digitization of terrestrial TV broadcasts. Foxconn Electronics stands a considerably large chance of winning the procurement orders, and affiliate Innolux is likely to supply panels, according to Digitimes Research.

So far, six vendors/makers with TV production in Mexico, including Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics and Foxconn, will participate in the bidding, Digitimes Research indicated.

Meanwhile, in the China market, web video portals have been forced to give up delivering video services via the Internet and become pure providers of video content due to the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television's IPTV regulatory measures. However, as many white-box OTT (over the top) models, most of which are not in compliance with regulations, are available for sale, web video portals are likely to maintain their market status by virtue of OTT devices, Digitimes Research noted.
