It is listed on the Mexican Stock Exchange under the code CABLE.[not verified in body] Izzi provides telephone, Internet, and cable TV services to individuals and companies with coverage in the Mexico City metropolitan area and other cities in Mexico.

History[edit]

Cablevisión was founded on October 3, 1960, by a group of 10 people led by architect Benjamín Burillo Pérez. In 1969, the Communications and Transportation Secretary granted the company, then with 300 subscribers, temporary permission to install 124 kilometres (77 mi) of coaxial cable in Colonia Roma. That same year, Cablevisión became a part of Grupo Televisa, which was owned by businessman Emilio Azcárraga Milmo.[citation needed]

In 2006, 49% of Cablemás and 50% of TVI (a.k.a. Cablevisión Noreste) were acquired. In 2007, Bestel Company was acquired. On October 31, 2014, the company stopped operating under Cablevisión, rebranding as Izzi and launching with Internet, television, and telephone service as a single product.[citation needed]

To strengthen the company, five cable companies were acquired in Mexico:

  • Cablemás (100%) in 2011
  • Cablecom (48%) in 2012
  • Cablecom (remaining 52%) in 2013
  • Cablevisión Red a.k.a. Telecable (100%) in 2015.[1]

Izzi was listed as the 22nd most valuable brand in Mexico in 2016.[citation needed]
