Article written using the information that email me Mr. Hugo Barcia, the Institutional Relations and Press Manager of Canal 7 Argentina, la televisión pública. Please check the grammar. Thank you, Loco085 02:55, 25 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]


Is there any chance of getting information about who the people on both sides are and why they do what they do? To me (and I suspect a large portion of the English speaking audience), this article is mostly a list of names of people, groups and localities. I don't even know who Mendoza's rival is (can a city even have a rival that requests TV channels be taken off the air?) --SVTCobra 03:10, 25 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, the dispute is within the Canal 7 Argentina (a public channel from the Argentine State) and the Vila-Manzano Group (private), a monopolistic media conglomerate. The relay broadcasts the cities of Maipú, Luján de Cuyo, Lavalle, San Martín, Palmira, Junín, Santa Rosa, La Paz and Rivadavia. In the other cities, Canal 7 installed new relays in 2007.
