In case of COVID-19, Brazil has the largest number of cases, followed by Ecuador, Chile, Peru, and Argentina amongst others. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the closure of all economic activities across the region, in order to combat the spread of the virus. This has led to the increase in unemployment across the country thereby impacting the spending capacity of the country on television cable connections. The unemployment rate rose from 11.0 percent in the fourth quarter of 2019 to 12.2 percent in the first quarter of 2020, according to the official statistics agency IBGE, reaching 12.9 million people. Operators revealed they would provide free previews for premium networks in the early days of the coronavirus outbreak, as a way to persuade viewers to stay at home and minimize churn. Since free forecasts have ended, along with rising unemployment pressures and lower wages, cord-cutting is expected to intensify in the coming months as the pandemic and quarantine steps affect an economy that is still emerging from recession. Thus, the above-mentioned factors are expected to negatively impact the set top box market over the years owing to the outbreak of the pandemic.
