Golden age of drama

New hire

Following Azteca America’s counterprogramming strategy, Marlene Braga, VP of Programming of the network, believes the high telenovela saturation in the market marks the golden age of Spanish-language drama in the U.S. “The market demands innovation. The consumer is growing accustomed to high quality productions,” she says. Azteca America in partnership with Sony Pictures Television (SPT) is developing a dramatic series specifically aimed at this market. Marlene Braga

Padilla has more than 15 years of experience in the U.S. Hispanic and multicultural markets and overseas. “Securing channels that not only exhibit titles but have multi-platform rights is strategic for pay-TV distributors and their efforts to maximize subscriber acquisition and retention.

BBC Worldwide bolstered its executive team of channels in Latin America and U.S. Hispanic with the appointment of Javier López Casella as VP of Distribution & Development.

Satisfied with growth

Alejandro Bernal

Alejandro Bernal, New Channels Manager of Caracol Televisión Internacional, says they continue to work with cable operators in the U.S. Hispanic market to maximize platforms and VOD opportunities for the signal. He also said the channel has an innovative new project it will announce soon. “Our growth has been very satisfactory. We maintain our exclusivity with DTH and we’re being carried by the top cable operators, which has boosted our distribution to over 2.5 million subscribers,” added Bernal.

Digital extension

ESPN launches ESPN Deportes+ on ESPN3, a new programming extension of ESPN Deportes and ESPN3 dedicated to serving sports fans with live events in Spanish-language housed under a single digital destination. At launch, it is slated to carry over 200 exclusive, live sports events. “It will serve as an extension of ESPN Deportes television, allowing us to showcase live programming that is relevant to our Hispanic audience, and in their own language,” said Lino García, General Manager of ESPN Deportes.

Transformation

Once TV Mexico and Lemon Films introduced their first co-production with the series Paramédicos. Produced in collaboration with the Mexican Red Cross and based on real stories, the series seeks to add to and consolidate the channel’s new adult audience. It also expands the catalog of original productions for international distribution. “Ever since Once TV Mexico started co-producing series in this format, the audience has changed from being dominated by kids to a 19-39 demographic,” said Rafael Lugo, Director of Once TV Mexico.

New season

Luca Bentivoglio

LATV Networks announced a new season of current and original programming that includes shows like Cinelticket and Patrullando Tijuana, product of the partnership with TV MEX. “These new programs anchor a full slate of shows that push the envelope of Spanishlanguage and bi-lingual programming. With Cinelticket, we have a show that can finally provide a platform for both established Spanish-language stars as well as up-and-coming urban Latino cinema,” commented Luca Bentivoglio, LATV’s COO and Head of Programming.

Hero with MundoFox

Hero Broadcasting LLC, owner & operator of local Phoenix television station KMOH 6/KEJR 40, officially launched as the local MundoFox affiliate. MundoFox is the new Spanish-language network from Fox International Channels and the RCN Television Group (RCN). “MundoFox’s original programming will challenge Univision and Telemundo because it provides a quality alternative to the cookie-cutter entertainment landscape that has become a fixture in Spanish-language television,” said Robert Behar, President and CEO of Hero Broadcasting LLC.

Triple-play

Rubén Mendiola

Comcast announced the nationwide rollout of Xfinity Triple Play MultiLatino, which combines MultiLatino TV video programming and services, a fast highspeed Internet service and a phone service that includes 300 international minutes per month to Mexico and Latin America. “We are excited to launch the first-ever triple play package that is designed specifically for Latinos. We’re offering our Hispanic customers considerable savings while they enjoy our best products,” said Rubén Mendiola, VP and General Manager of Multicultural Video Services at Comcast.

College football

Robert Behar

Fox Deportes makes history by broadening its program offerings with the addition of the popular American sport of college football to its telecast schedule. The network’s coverage of 17 games is the most-ever carried in one season in the history of U.S. Latino media, and none have been televised on Fox Deportes since 1996. “We are proud to expand our event portfolio by offering the biggest sports brands that reflect and serve today’s U.S. Latino,” said Vincent Cordero, Executive Vice President & General Manager of Fox Deportes.

For the little ones

BabyFirst Americas, the channel geared toward children up to four years old, reaches eight million homes, thanks to Comcast. Mario Solís Marich, VP of Programming of BabyFirst Americas said that now is the boom time for Latino entertainment and Latino educational programming. “I have been for 14 years in English entertainment and I have never seen the advertisers and the broadcasters so open and ready as they are now, to distribute Latino content,” he said. Mario Solís Marich

Interactive

Azteca premiered its new project Los Rey, starring Rossana Nájera, Michel Brown and Leonardo García, and produced by Elisa Salinas. The show will be distributed internationally and will feature integrations of brands such as Bayer. “This is a large project, with an international cast that will allow us to export it to other markets. In the coming months we will start selling it and we hope to reach over 40 countries,” said Alberto Santini, Director of Azteca Novelas and Azteca Trece.

Univision Communications Inc. announced the appointment of Jesús Chávez to Senior VP of Interactive for Univision Television Group (UTG).

Los Héroes del Norte went from misfits to superstars during the show’s debut season. This time the story takes an interesting turn as the singers try to make it on their own but realize that their strength is in numbers and that five heroes are better than one! Produced by Adicta Films, the new season was shot on exotic locations in Mexico, and for the first time in the U.S. and Morocco. This season is packed with unexpected plot twists, wacky adventures, celebrity guests, and plenty of lively music during the 18 new episodes.

Hispanic sports TV market grows Two new sports signals have entered the U.S. Hispanic market this year. This niche has proved to be an advertiser favorite

The niche of sports pay-TV in the U.S. Hispanic market is highly coveted by brands and advertisers because sports is one of the activities with most appeal for all demographics, and particularly for Hispanic adults, whose purchasing power has been steadily rising. The niche, historically dominated by Fox Deportes, has seen the addition of channels of the caliber of GolTV, ESPN Deportes, and more recently, Univision Deportes Network and the new signal beIN SPORT.

A valuable fan base for brands John Fitzgerald, VP of Sales of ESPN Deportes, says that sports have always served a valuable fan base for

14

www.produ.com

brands. Youth, affluence and brand loyalty are some of the reasons why. “In an age of such media opportunity – across and in media – fragmentation puts a premium on finding this type of audience. Sports has shown itself to be the best type of entertainment to deliver that audience in mass and with high levels of engagement,” added Fitzgerald. Rodrigo Lombello, COO of GolTV said, “networks have spotted an opportunity by drawing in an audience that is passionate about sports. The Spanish population is growing at a rapid pace and has always been a culture centered on sports such as soccer, baseball and boxing. There is no question that

John Fitzgerald

Vincent Cordero

Spanish speaking sports fans are devoted and proud of their heritage, and what better than providing them with a venue to view their country’s national teams, especially as live sports programming continues to be in high demand.”

New players in the market

“The U.S. Latino market is the new face of America and the biggest growth opportunity for any industry, sports, has been and continues to be the premiere face of TV, and cable TV is the driving force in media. Therefore, the overall media industry is investing in U.S. Latino cable sports networks,” said Vincent Cordero, Executive Vice President & General Manager of Fox Deportes.

“The single most watched soccer league in the U.S. is Liga MX which, until now, had only been available on broadcast television, and coverage couldn’t go much beyond the actual match. We launched Univision Deportes Network to be the undisputed home of Mexican soccer. Our audience was demanding that a trusted high-quality programmer, one who fully understands their passion, offer them a dedicated

According to Juan Carlos Rodríguez, President of Univision Deportes at Univision Communications Inc., there just hasn’t been enough relevant content available to satisfy the passion of Hispanic sports fans.

environment through which they can access the live matches, sports news, analysis, and entertainment they crave 24/7. Because of this strong demand, Univision Deportes Network is available on broad distribution tiers on DISH, FiOS TV, AT&T U-Verse and, soon on Cablevision, evidence of the large appeal our sports content offers audiences,” commented Rodríguez. Since last August beIN SPORT was added to the group of sports networks catering to the Hispanic community. “We are very proud to bring to the American community a new way of watching sports, a better way, where all platforms come together to provide a truly custom-

ized and totally unprecedented depth of interactive experience to the viewer,” said Yousef Al Obaidli, Managing Director of beIN SPORT. Asked about the boom of sports channels catering to the Hispanic market, Fitzgerald adds that if you are a distributor of media, sports makes you more valuable to potential subscribers and if you are a company that needs to speak to consumers, sports is the best platform to do that. “That is why you see the proliferation of media companies looking to build out their sports businesses,” added Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald emphasized that ESPN has known this for 33 years. “We have

Univision Deportes Extra

quality content, scale and engagement across all media and all languages. We feel very comfortable in this space and our value proposition to all of our partners,” concluded.

Benefits of the programming

Among the benefits of this type of programming, Lombello mentioned the audience. “Sports programming provides advertisers a very specific audience that is highly engaged. In addition, live sports offer advertisers the ability to pinpoint exactly who they wish to reach by demographic, and do so through a programming sector (live sports) that is seeing increased viewership,” he added.

Cordero says that sports is the ultimate live viewing experience with the most passionate fan base: the ultimate in reality and entertainment TV, the greatest athletes and competition in the world, where anything can happen, and everything is happening live. “Fox Deportes is the #1 U.S. Latino sports network, with the broadest distribution, with the most original events hours, on the most exclusive basis, with the most expansive and diverse portfolio of the biggest sports event brands in the world, with the #1 rated sports news show, and the premiere soccer talk show,” emphasized Cordero.

“GolTV is the exclusive destination for real soccer fans to get connected, offering the best league and tournament play from across the Americas, European World Cup qualifiers and matches from Bundesliga.

buy that delivers to a targeted and loyal audience,” adds Lombello. Rodríguez explained that Univision already enjoys a 50-year reputation as the leading Spanish-language sports broadcaster in the U.S. “Our dedicated sports network had a built-in audience and incredible street-cred the day it launched. To maintain that enviable position, Univision Deportes Network is focused on entertaining and informing Hispanics with

exclusive sports content that resonates most with them such as Mexican soccer, international soccer, boxing, relevant U.S. sports news, and in-depth information on Hispanic athletes. We also leverage all  of our media platforms and programming assets to deliver unparalleled sports experiences to our audiences,” he added. The executive said one of the aspects that sets them apart from the

competition is that thanks to their content partnership with Televisa, and the access to the sports teams Hispanics love most, they are able to give their fans exclusive, neverbefore-available content they can’t get anywhere else. “We offer Hispanics a direct connection to Mexico,” added Rodríguez.

Jessica Rodríguez, EVP of Program Scheduling at Univision

“We need to make sure to counterprogram each channel to offer all Hispanics something that captivates them” At her new post as head of Program Scheduling, Rodríguez hopes to continue innovating with spaces and content and keep up with the evolution of this medium

How do you take on the challenge of handling the program scheduling area of Univision? I grew up watching Univision. I’ve always felt part of it and I remain a fan of the network and its content. It is a great responsibility to head scheduling for the entire company.

Jessica Rodríguez

www.produ.com

We are very aware of the position of Univision among the most important in the country, and above all, of its importance for the Hispanic viewer. This is a job that has to be taken seriously, because it’s not only about providing support to the company, but also offering our viewers the best possible programming the way we’ve done for the past 50 years, and we hope we can do the same for years to come.

In these 10 years at Univision, how do you feel about your achievements? This position was created recently, so I have a lot of work to do. I’m currently in the process of working with all internal groups to define and implement a work plan consisting of building analysis, reporting and a programming strategy, not just for the open-air and cable networks, but also for all our new media platforms. In the 10 years I’ve been with Univision, I’ve mostly work in the area of programming. The seven years I spent as vice president and manager of the Puerto Rico station were critical for the development of my career because being there helped me understand all aspects of

programming and strategy as well as how to run a station. What are the upcoming challenges? The main challenge we face is to stay number one. Competition has grown and strengthened; and it’s not just Spanish-language media, because Univision now competes neck and neck with English-language networks as well. We need to make sure to counterprogram each channel to offer all Hispanics something that captivates them, because if we don’t do it, somebody else will. What are your goals? Our goal is to continue to innovate with spaces and content and keep up with the evolution of this medium.


“At Univision, the departments of Programming, Research, and Sales, are closely intertwined because, in order to program adequately, we need to take all these elements into account.”

Por Ella Soy Eva

New media are unquestionably essential and we need to make sure all of our content is available to our audience. And it’s not just about offering our traditional content, but also about creating extensions that can increase the life of these products. How do advertising sales influence your job? It is worth noting that at Univision, the departments of Programming, Research, and Sales are closely intertwined, because, in order to program adequately, we need to take all of these elements into account. Sometimes people have the impression that programming is only about being creative and innovative. However, to succeed in this area, it’s equally as important to consider the analytic parts that deal with ratings, share, trends, etc., as well as the

Samy, one of the contestants of ¡Mira Quién Baila!

strategic area of studying the competition. Sales play a critical role in programming because we need to select the spaces where brands wish to and should be. Do you take into account the feedback from social media regarding programs, ratings, programming block, among others? Without question, social media are an essential part of the planning of the content featured on our platforms. For example, with our event Premios Juventud, viewers were integrated into the show, and that was something we planned from the beginning. Social networks should be a conversation with our audience. They are changing our industry, and that is why Univision is keenly focused on them to guarantee our leadership in this area.

Amor Bravío

What elements determine the success of shows? Is it your responsibility to decide whether or not they stay on air? Ratings are always a good gauge of the success of a show. However, they need to be balanced with whether the format is new or traditional. Sometimes we need allow time for the viewer to find and like a show. We also keep track of the show’s trend. Sometimes the highest rated shows start out with below-average results. Aside from ratings, we also need to take into account that the measure of success must also consider new media and how much people interact with the content.

How is scheduling different for a network such as Univision, versus a cable channel such as Galavisión o Univision Deportes Network? For example, Univision is the umbrella network; the one to offer entertainment for the entire family, with the best productions, and where you go to get the best news, the best special events, and the best variety shows and telenovelas. In the case of TeleFutura, we deal with more alternative programming, geared towards a mostly male audience, with fewer telenovelas. Galavisión is the largest cable network, and it being on cable, allows us to take more risks and innovate more. Our goal is to maintain the personality and style of each property of Univision.

Azteca America continues to invest in research to better serve the audience The Hispanic network has modernized its on-air look, has increased its content and HD distribution, and it’s intensifying its marketing efforts in cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Dallas and New York

Martín Breidsprecher, CEO of Azteca America, said that the reality show Quiero ser Grupero, which recently closed its first season, will come back for season two. Also for next year the network will air Viña del Mar 2013. Breidsprecher also talked about the launch of the network’s HD feed. “We launched in HD over two months ago, but it’s not a direct process. DIRECTV Los Angeles already carries us in HD, as well as AT&T, and we are in conversations with Time Warner, DISH and Verizon FiOS. We launched in Houston and Dallas two weeks ago

and we are talking with operators to be carried. We are also increasing content production in HD, which is our main goal,” he added. Quiero ser Grupero, La Isla, La Academia and the soccer games are already being produced in HD. La Academia 10 años is already being produced at Azteca’s new studios in Churubusco, Mexico. The reality show La Isla is produced in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic and it’s a co-production with Canal 7 in Mexico.

Martín Breidsprecher

The executive said social networks have been essential in promoting the shows. “We’ve ran several campaigns on social media and we’ve seen great response and engagement from the public, particularly younger people,” he added. Breidsprecher indicated the company continues to invest in research studies to better serve its audience. “We are going to launch a new study in where we ask the audience about their preferences. We are focusing on the channel’s image and soon we will have news to announce. We

homogenized and modernized our screen with promos that feature a common style and that better catch our audience’s attention,” he added. Breidsprecher also pointed out they have intensified marketing efforts in markets such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Dallas and New York, supported by promos on radio, print, Twitter, Facebook and outdoor posters.

Young network BuenaVisión TV set to grow distribution BuenaVisión TV, the new open TV network, the first station of which is Channel 3 in New York City, is soon to be offered by Verizon FiOS, Time Warner and Cablevision for that area

Carlos Barba, President and CEO of BuenaVisión TV, has been in the Spanish-language TV industry for five decades. His new venture aims to offer a new programming alternative for Hispanics on the U.S. East Coast and the Caribbean.

Tampa, Florida and in Puerto Rico they have an affiliation with Channel 13. He also said that they have already closed a distribution deal on cable with OneLink. The idea is to extend the network throughout the East Coast of the U.S.

“I’ve been in the television industry in the U.S. for 50 years. I think there’s a lot to do, and it occurred to me to create something I call the new TV, the new communication, which is based on a channel that has a close appeal to the Hispanic community in New York,” said Barba.

Barba explains that it’s a multiplatform project, and that aside from TV, they already have radio properties in Puerto Rico, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Peru, and soon in Mexico. “Many people are interested in that platform and we’re going to continue it with other regions,” he said.

He indicated, that along with his partners Roberto and Luis Isaías from Ecuador, they are buying a station in

Mundo Visión

El Vocero in Puerto Rico in which the media company will provide two half-hours of news, and the people in New York will be able to read the newspaper. The channel just launched and has already made additions to its programming grid, such as acclaimed shows from Colombia’s renowned Jorge Barón, El Show de las Estrellas and Noticiero TelePaís. El Show de las Estrellas airs Sunday evenings from 7-9:30pm. Noticiero TelePaís airs weekday nights from 11 to 11:30pm and is one of Colombia’s most viewed programs.

BuenaVisión’s primetime programming will include nightly news, interview and entertainment shows, plus a variety of popular movies from the big screen on CineClub. One of the entertainment shows, Hollywood Express, is produced and filmed at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, covering all of the celebrity happenings of the movie industry with Caroline Barba as the host. Other partner providers include Color Visión Channel 9 in the Dominican Republic and Teleoro Channel 13 in Puerto Rico. Maribel Ramos-Weiner

WAPA TV continues to lead free-TV in Puerto Rico For the past four years WAPA TV has been leading the ratings of free TV in Puerto Rico with successful shows as Idol Puerto Rico, Risas en Combo and most recently Pablo Escobar: El Patrón del Mal from Caracol TV and Idol Kids

“Last rankings showed unprecedented results, with over 60% of our programs in the top 30 spots for all demographics,” said Jimmy Arteaga, VP of Programming and Promotions of WAPA TV. He commented that the company launched in September the third season of Risas en Combo, as well as new series such as Person of Interest and the new season of The Mentalist. Additionally, the series Pablo

24

www.produ.com

Escobar: El Patrón del Mal, which premiered last August, has become the most watched show in the country. The series premiered August 10th on WAPA TV in the 9-11pm slot with an average share of 39% (22.7 ratings), outperforming rival networks Telemundo and Univisión, and produced similar results the following Saturday when it aired in the 8-10pm slot.

Jimmy Arteaga

“These results confirm that Puerto Ricans wanted to know the story of the infamous drug lord because they don’t want to repeat Colombia’s history. Additionally, high production standards and the fact that is shot 100% on location, makes the story more real,” added Arteaga. The first season of Idol Kids and the second of Idol Puerto Rico have yielded great results for the network. Once again, Idol Puerto Rico and is

Idol Puerto Rico

the most watched show in its time slot, and along with Idol Kids, secured the highest ratings for all demographics between July 15th and August 14th. “Now Puerto Rico has a new forum for kids to show their singing abilities. Although the talent has always been there, it was ever showcased,” said Arteaga. Maribel Ramos-Weiner

True relevance: The third dimension of value Rubén Mendiola Vi ce Pre s i d e nt an d Gen era l Ma n a ger of Mu l tic u l tu ra l Video S er v ices, Com ca s t

It’s no secret that the Hispanic television landscape in the U.S. has evolved tremendously over the past two decades. What was then a world dominated by English-language programmers and just two lone Spanish-language broadcasters, today is a thriving and evolving industry with a vast amount of Hispanic channels to choose from. The growth of the Hispanic population and its purchasing power has helped us develop more and better U.S. Hispanic-focused programming and reel in advertisers. To some, this may be the time to proclaim “Mission Accomplished.” But not so fast! While affirming that we’re headed in the right direction, the steps that have

brought us here can and will no doubt pale in comparison to the giant leaps we can take now. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done, and it’s now up to us as an industry to take it to the next level. Cable is a reality for U.S. Hispanics today; there are more channels and ways of viewing Spanish-language programming than ever before. The challenge is to not only help viewers cut through the clutter, but also lead them to the Pay TV content that is most relevant to them. Hispanic consumers have demonstrated that along with more choices, they want the right programming. In fact, despite having more options

available than ever, according to Nielsen, today roughly 60 percent of Spanish-dominant Pay TV subscribers still watch Spanish-language broadcast channels exclusively on prime time. Therefore, although we’ve beamed an assortment of Spanish Pay TV channels into their homes, the real challenge and opportunity lies in getting them to watch more of this programming, more often. “So what now?” you may ask. From here on out, we as an industry must work together to establish a deeper connection with the audience and deliver what I call the third dimension of value: true relevance. Not just

more options, but more of the relevant options subscribers truly want and need. At Comcast, I take this on as a personal challenge every day, and as a company we have taken strides to create targeted ways to connect people with the content available to them. We are in a burgeoning business and it is our combined creativity that will propel us to greater things. Now is the time to get creative and communicate the value and relevance that hooks in viewers and will make our industry flourish.

BBC Worldwide Channels: The U.S. Hispanic market is fundamental According to Guillermo Sierra, Senior VP and General Manager of the Latin America and U.S. Hispanic channels and services of the BBC Worldwide, the Hispanic market in the U.S., where the company already has the children’s channel CBeebies, is of extreme importance to BBC. “For BBC, the U.S. Hispanic market is fundamental. It is one of the areas of greatest growth in the world, that’s why we launched CBeebies there. The educational and production levels of the channel are extraordinary. The fact that the brand has such a solid presence and that it was the first signal to be launched in the U.S. Hispanic market, is a reflection of how important this segment is for our company,” said Sierra. He indicated that both the Latin America and U.S. Hispanic markets were identified by the company as

the areas with higher growth potential in the coming years. “We will be working with the brands, the content, and major cable operator and advertiser relationships to grow our content in the region,” added Sierra. CBeebies’ distribution has been growing steadily. It started with DISH Network nationwide and the channel is currently in conversations with several other operators. “The U.S. Hispanic cable market is limited. Operators do not assign capacity as they do for English-language channels, so we always have to wait for space to become available. But I can tell you that there is great interest among cable operators to carry this channel. They recognize its quality and value, and are looking for options within their lineups to accommodate CBeebies,” he said.

Canal Ella with significant investment in original production Canal Ella has begun significant investments into original programming geared toward Hispanic audiences in the U.S. At the moment the company has three original productions in the works: La Chispa de Chef Carmen González, Carmen al Rescate and Food Hunting. “La Chispa de Chef Carmen González is being produced in seven different locations, with 10 one-hour episodes. We’re filming in Portland, where the chef has her restaurant, and from there we’re going to Central America to find an assistant that will accompany her in the show,” said Marcello Coltro, Senior VP and CMO of MGM Networks Latin America, who heads development for the network.

High Hill Entertainment also takes part in this new original production. The program, which combines a reality and talk show, will air for 10 one-hour episodes. Hosted renowned chef Carmen González from Top Chef Masters, the show will take on a new format produced by Coltro, who is also the creator of the successful reality show En Busca de la Nueva Diva, airing on Casa Club TV. Canal Ella also has other productions underway, such as Food Hunting with Natalia Delgado and Carmen al Rescate with Carmen Batiz.

Cine Sony Television is the first pay-TV venture of SPT in the U.S. Hispanic market

elgourmet.com offers 100% original quality content

Sony Pictures Television ventures into the U.S. Hispanic market with its first pay-TV channel. PRODU spoke with Superna Kalle, Senior Vice President of U.S. Networks at SPT and General Manager of Sony Movie Channel and Cine Sony Television, about this new endeavor.

The signal elgourmet.com, owned by Pramer, is in negotiations with major cable and satellite providers in the U.S. to include the channel in their Hispanic packages. For Pramer, the Hispanic market holds a large potential.

“As one of the fastest growing populations, the U.S. Hispanic market provides a significant growth opportunity for SPT. With that increased audience comes an increased demand for content that is both culturally relevant and entertaining to audiences, which is exactly what Cine Sony Television will offer. The Spanish-language network features a variety of genres including the best Hollywood movies, popular, action packed TV series and a global line up of Latin music artists,” said Kalle. The channel offers show ranging from Los Caballeros las Prefieren

Brutas to The International. Cine Sony Television offers a wide variety of high-quality series and feature films. Programming is selected from multiple studios including the Sony Pictures library, featuring more than 3,500 films, including 12 Best Picture Academy Award winners. “Looking ahead, we do expect to offer original content for this audience,” added Kalle. She expects that this demographic will continue to grow along with the projected population growth as long as distributors continue to add compelling channels.

Cocina de Playa

“We’re working to grow in this market with elgourmet.com. We have a quality product that has succeeded in identifying food and flavors as the unifying concept for the different Latin American cultures, each with its own traditions and ingredients,” said Alejandro Kember, VP of Affiliate Sales and Distribution of Pramer.

Kember points out that besides its high quality, the content is 100% original. “We’ve already produced content in the U.S. and we’ll continue to do so. Because it is such a big market, the are many opportunities to show the richness of the different Hispanic cultures and how they influence American culture. At the same time, the idea is to provide a vehicle for the different Hispanic communities to reconnect with their roots and values,” he added.

“Our goal is to reach every Hispanic pay-TV household in the U.S. Cine Sony Television’s launch on FiOS TV in August was just the first step towards reaching that goal. We’re currently speaking with several carriers and have plans to expand on additional platforms very soon,” added Kalle.

Perú Mágico now with more focus on news and sports Perú Mágico kicked off its new programming strategy. According to Pepe Tudela, Director of Content of Media Networks, the channel will increase it focus on news and sports, catering to Peruvians living abroad and particularly in the U.S. Monday through Friday, most of the content will be news and will mainly come from Canal N, the news channel of Grupo El Comercio. Sports content will be provided by Central Deportiva, the news show of Media Networks’ sports channel CMD. “But not everything will be information, because Perú Mágico is much more than a news channel; it paints the most complete picture of what’s happening in Peru,” said parte Ricardo Guzmán, Director of Distribution of Media Networks.

During the week, cooking shows, as well travel, culture and talk shows, which are supplied by Plus TV, another Media Networks channel, will complement the news content. On weekends, Perú Mágico will be devoted to sports, and in particular to Peruvian soccer, leveraging Media Networks’ broadcast rights to all clubs of the first division tournament. “We have a great product, with all the elements to consolidate ourselves in the U.S. Hispanic market: news, sports and entertainment. We want to emphasize the channel is a bridging vehicle connecting native Peruvians and the new generations with the country,” added Tudela.

Klavo offers options for male viewers Klavo, the new Somos TV channel, will soon see its official launch. It is currently on testing phase, to fine tune and run final checks. The entire process of content acquisition, development and testing of the graphic package (elements for promotions, IDs, transitions and other fillers), and creation of the programming grid and play-out, is already in place. Klavo is a unique channel because it appeals to a significant segment of the Hispanic market, over 25 million men, the only audience segment where men outnumber women. This segment has been overlooked in the past. “We believe Klavo, given the current segmentation of the market, delivers a massive audience, and follows our

strategy of developing innovative channels based on strong demographic evidence,” says Luis Villanueva, President & CEO of Somos TV. Armando Chirinos, the renowned television professional with experience in Venezuela and several Latin American pan-regional channels, will be in charge of managing the brand, the creation and maintenance of the programming grid, and the selection of thematic content. Villanueva says the channel will be partially funded by advertising sales. “The attractiveness of the concept and the market potential it offers have allowed us to start partnership talks with several high-caliber companies,” he added.

LAETV: We’ve grown 30% this year

WAPA America grows distribution

To date, the balance of Latin American Ethnic Television (LAETV) this year has been a positive one. Kurt Pflucker, President of LAETV, said that the market has responded extremely well. “We’ve grown 30% compared to last year. We’re very satisfied with the trust our clients have placed on us, and look to continue supporting their growth; which in turn allows us to grow with them,” added Pflucker. Canal R (RMTV) and Multimedios are the most recent additions to the portfolio of channels LAETV represents and distributes. “We are currently in negotiations with two new channels

that I hope to announce in mid-October,” he said. Pflucker said that although advertising sales is the company’s specialty, channel distribution is also very important. “I believe that today’s cable and satellite companies have increasingly better offers for Hispanic channel packages. We are proud to represent over 50% offered today. We have a select portfolio because we represent the channels with the highest audience, which provides a very attractive offer,” added Pflucker.

Mongui y Pescuezo

Since InterMedia Partners bought WAPA America in 2007, the channel has grown its distribution five-fold. “Last year, we launched on DISH Network nationally and a number of Cox, Time Warner and Comcast systems, bringing our nationwide subscriber base to more than 5.3 million homes,” said Alan Sokol, Senior Partner of InterMedia Partners and Chairman of WAPA-TV. In addition, the channel is offered on the basic digital tiers in the large Puerto Rican markets of Orlando, Tampa and Miami-Ft. Lauderdale. “We’ve also had success making the channel available in what have traditionally been considered non-Puerto Rican/Caribbean markets, like Los Angeles, Houston, Denver, Washington, D.C. and Virginia,

reflecting the growing Puerto Rican population in the U.S., as well as the mass-appeal of our programming,” he added. Sokol mentioned they are in the process of upgrading master control and completing a full HD upgrade, to be launched imminently. “We continue to produce 70 hours per week of the top-rated local news and entertainment programming in Puerto Rico, almost all of which can be seen on WAPA America. We began a new season of Risas en Combo that it’s the number one-rated comedy show in Puerto Rico. In fact, Risas en Combo is so popular that WAPA recently launched two shows based off of characters from the program: Mama’s Boy and Mongui y Pescuezo,” he commented.

ViendoMovies among the top 10 Spanish-language channels

TV Chile pioneer in the Hispanic market

The signal ViendoMovies of Somos TV, is among the top 10 channels in the U.S. Hispanic market. It currently has over 3 million subscribers and is carried by all major cable systems in the country (Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cablevision, Verizon, AT&T, Cox, Charter Communications and RCN, among others). It also on Puerto Rico cable operators OneLink, Choice Cable, and Liberty, as well as other medium and small size systems, distributed through CMC and NCTC. Because the channel offers exclusive, culturally relevant films without commercial interruptions, ViendoMovies is an attractive option adding value and quality to pay-TV. ViendoMovies’ acceptance is echoed by the feedback on social media

34

www.produ.com

(Facebook and Twitter), and the number of subscribers to the RSS Feed. ViendoMovies is present on all TV Everywhere options. The channel is still negotiating with satellite companies, waiting for the best opportunity to close and thus reach an untapped segment of the Hispanic audience. The channel premieres an average 10 movies per month. Additionally, the signal is experimenting with high-quality series similar to those offered on VOD television, with high production value and innovative narratives. Somos TV believes these series will be successful because it has negotiated the best in Spanish-language television with proven ratings records.

Conectados

TV Chile has been present in the U.S. Hispanic market since 1998, when DISH and DIRECTV launched their packages in Spanish. “We have good distribution in the Hispanic market through DIRECTV, and also through the negotiations we have with Olympusat and cable operators. We have close to 1.2 million cable subscribers, about 25% of the current market,” said Ernesto Lombardi, Manager of International Business and International Channel of TV Chile. The channel is still in negotiations with DISH Network to re-establish the distribution it had in the past. 15% of the channel’s production is exclusive to its international signal

and cannot be seen on the free-TV channel in Chile. These productions include Conectados, a two-hour long magazine show that features extensive telephone and Skype calls with people in the U.S., and Buscando América, where the host travels across Latin America showing rarely visited tourist jewels. The international signal of TV Chile also features the Chilean Soccer Tournament. “We keep the channel fresh by airing an about 15 to 16 hours of new programming content everyday, compared to other pay-TV channels that show more re-runs. We also acquire the best programming from other Chilean channels, like the Channel 13 series Los ochenta,” said Lombardi.

Alterna´TV grows 20%

Semillitas increasing original productions

Alterna´TV exhibits a 20% growth compared to least year as a result of new distribution deals and good performance of the channels it represents in the U.S. Hispanic market. Maricela Hernández, Affiliate Sales Director of Alterna’TV, said the company has had a great year. “Something new is that our channel Latin America Sports (LAS), which last year launched on Cablevision, will launch on all Comcast systems this November,” said Hernández. LAS was originally launched in Puerto Rico on DISH and it is now expanding across the U.S.

Hernández also said the company has had success with its channels in Latin America, such as Planet X, the extreme sports channel that already has distribution in Mexico, Central America and some South American countries like Peru, Venezuela and Colombia. Other news includes the launch of HD channels. “We have four ready, one of which is Planet X. We are already migrating from the MPEG 2 to the MPEG 4 platform, and it will be ready by the second quarter of 2013, when we’ll complete all HD channel upgrades,” added Hernández.

Children’s channel Semillitas, owned by Somos TV, keeps incorporating new content in order to keep its screen fresh, maintain excellence levels in a competitive environment and cater to its audience. The signal holds a significant portion of original programming in Spanish, while other channels tend to repurpose content from their parent companies, which are typically American or European. “Our strength resides in our ability and independence to produce a channel that properly addresses the needs of this particular market and not just repackage animation based on the corporate criteria of international brands. Our signal is very special, produced with care and

Isla Tumoya

love for all our little ones, with a focus not just on language, but on teaching values and traditions to Latinos in the U.S.,” said Luis Villanueva, President and CEO of Somos TV. Villanueva says they have rescued traditional Latin American children’s songs, and used them in their shows and for mass distribution. “This characteristic and the fact that the channel is produced by Hispanics in the U.S. for Hispanics in the U.S., also helps us develop interstitials and content that address the specific needs of this market,” said Villanueva, adding the channel will add an hour of original programming to launch in last quarter.

Tele El Salvador, the youngest channel of the SuperCanal portfolio

Cinelatino: solid content and distribution

There are an estimated 2.5 million Salvadorians in the U.S. With this demographic in mind, SuperCanal distributes Tele El Salvador in the market since 2009. Tele El Salvador currently has distribution through the systems of Cablevision in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut; on RCN in Washington, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley; and through Verizon FiOS TV in Dallas, Tampa, Baltimore, Washington, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles, Fort Wayne, Richmond, Norfolk, Pittsburgh, Providence, Buffalo, Harrisburg and Syracuse.

The channel grid includes sports programming such as the weekend highlights show hosted by Roberto Aquino, Deportes y Más, and the daily soccer show Palco Deportivo. In the area of news, the channel features Noticias 29 Occidente and Notivisión, as well as opinion shows De Cerca, hosted by Jilson Rodríguez, and Opiniones, Noticias Agape, which features a series of interviews. The signal also features family shows such as Buenos Días Familia, with hosts William, Zuleyma, Maytte and Lorraine, and Club Famliar. Tele El Salvador also offers youth programming such as Entre Cheros and Buenos Días Oriente; and lifestyle shows such as Mi País TV, Olga! and Olga Plus!, hosted by Olga Miranda, who presents delicious recipes.

Cartas a Elena

Cinelatino will soon reach its 15th anniversary in the U.S. Hispanic pay-TV market. Channel chairman Jim McNamara is pleased with the signal’s performance and points out it has achieved two key goals for a pay-TV channel: distribution and content quality. “We are in a privileged position thanks to our MVS partners. Cinelatino is the most widely distributed Spanish-language movie channel. We have the distribution and we’ve fought hard to offer our viewers the best movies. We have invested in programming and ratings show it,” said McNamara. He points out the channel buys many current movies from Mexico, Colombia, The Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and other Latin American

countries and from a wide array of distributors. “Some of the titles that need to be highlighted because they premiered shortly after their debut in Mexican theaters are Ella y el Candidato, Cartas a Elena and El Efecto Tequila,” said McNamara, adding that the channel premieres 12 to 14 movies each month. Cinelatino has VOD offers on Comcast and Cox, and expects to have similar offers with all remaining operators by next year. “Nielsen ratings suggest a high level of viewer satisfaction with our product and there is a possibility that we’ll start including advertising in the future. It is not imminent yet, but we’re exploring the idea,” said McNamara.

HITN continues to secure additional outlets for distribution, with a 10% growth in carriage thanks to its recent addition on three of the top 10 cable companies. HITN is now available in more than 42 million homes in the United States. “Concurrently, HITN’s presence in U.S. Hispanic households has increased by 10% since 2011,” stated HITN Vice President of Affiliate Distribution, Eric Turpin.

HITN announced the addition of a new cooking show, Cocinando con Laura Rosa, and is producing new episodes of its original fitness program, En Forma con Carlos Piña.

A new slate of documentary series are in the works, and VP of Content, Florentina Balseca-Almonte, is very excited about HITN’s upcoming co-production with Deustche-Welle – a special edition of the internationally renowned show Claves, focusing on the November U.S. presidential elections. “This is a tremendous opportunity to bring serious issues into focus, not only for our viewers but for Claves’ Latin American and European audience. We’re very honored to be co-producing the first U.S.-based production of Claves; Deustche-Welle produces each episode of the program in a different country in Latin America. This partnership marks the first time Deustche-Welle has teamed up with a U.S. Hispanic media company,” Balseca-Almonte noted.

Florida Media Market returns with more force in 2013 The new edition of the Florida Media Market (FMM), running from January 30th to February 2nd in Miami Beach, comes with new outlooks

“In 2013, we return with a lot more force. We have associated ourselves with George Leclere, with the Sechuan Festival and a new competition known as Format Day, in which filmmakers register by sending their written formats. We then put them on the FMM platform so that the executives can decide on projects to develop,” said Maritza Guimet, founder & CEO FMM of GMW and CPA Films. The executive explained that since 2009, they had been in conversations with Rick Feldman, the former president of Natpe, about holding

FMM right after Natpe in Miami Beach, since the events aren’t competitors but can actually benefit each other as far as attendees. “This year we’re stronger because, along with LGMA president George Leclere, we’ve thought of new ways for filmmakers to present projects to executive producers, we’ve gauged the interest of executives to meet with creatives, and how to have truly polished projects. One of the main issues last year is that independent filmmakers did not have their projects fully developed. It is also important to include brand integra-

George Leclere

tion and other elements in the analysis,” said Guimet. Another new aspect of the FMM is the calling on female production houses so that they are present at the event to support the production of high quality programs geared toward women. Guimet, who also works for Olympusat buying programs, commented that she has noticed the few modern programs geared toward the female audience. “I’m currently working with Ultraluna, one of the Olympusat channels, and have realized it’s extremely difficult to

Maritza Guimet

find women’s programming. I believe today’s woman is not the one who cooks, sews and irons. Women have left a legacy, we are the core of the family, and when we join forces we can change programming and make it better for our children and our grandchildren,” added Guimet. Aside from FMM, Guimet has been working on two of her own projects: a documentary titled Incurable Diseases and a film based on a part of her life when she was dating a prince of Saudi Arabia.
