In a meeting with Argentine president Mauricio Macri to formalize the contract for the TV rights to local football, the president of Turner International reportedly expressed his wish to launch an Argentine version of the news network.

A day after the deal for the broadcast rights to Argentine football was announced on Thursday, March 16, Argentine president Mauricio Macri met with president of Turner International, Gerhard Zeiler, and president of Turner Latin America, Whit Richardson. 
 
The meeting also included the former general coordinator of Fútbol Para Todos, Fernando Marín, and Turner's VP of Legal Affairs, Víctor Roldán. 
 
According to a report from Argentina's official news agency, Télam, the many issues addressed during the meeting included Turner's intentions to launch CNN Argentina, a local version of the international news network.
 
The US company launched CNN Chile back in 2008 and Turner Latin America became the network's sole-owner in August 2016.
 
Local media say the Argentine government is interested in having a company like Turner with a strong presence in both pay and broadcast TV, to counteract Clarín Group's weight in the local media dynamic.
