Comcast has upgraded their Xfinity Latino plan, which is an exclusive programming package that caters to Latin American viewers. Ten new popular Spanish-language channels have been added, and the content available for Hispanic On Demand through TV or online has been doubled.
Xfinity Latino will be including the new networks, such as: BabyFirst TV Americas Español, beIN SPORT Español, Centroamerica TV, LAS (Latin American Sports), Pasiones, and Vme Kids, as well as the interactive Xfinity Latino Entertainment Channel. In addition, Xfinity customers can get access to multiple feeds of Telefutura, Telemundo and Univision, so they can watch or record shows from both East and West Coast broadcasts from all three channels.
The Xfinity Latino Entertainment channel is exclusive for Comcast subscribers only. The interactive channel will keep viewers updated on special programming highlights and has user friendly interactive features, such as the ability to navigate and directly access On Demand content from the embedded interactive menu. The channel will include how-to video tutorials hosted by various TV personalities from Telemundo, suggestions for what to watch On Demand on TV or online, as well as primetime specials on upcoming special events and programming.
“Xfinity Latino is the result of years of planning and innovation focused on delivering the best Spanish-language video experience for customers,” announced Ruben Mendiola, Comcast’s VP of Multicultural Video Services. “As a Hispanic, I’m proud that Xfinity Latino brings together the very best programming channels, exclusive content, flexibility, convenience and value that Hispanics are looking for today.”
The Spanish-language sports programming is the most complete in the industry, which includes beIN SPORT Español, LAS, coverage of all Spanish League (La Liga) soccer matches, South American World Cup qualifiers, Cuban baseball, as well as baseball, basketball and volleyball from Puerto Rico, and wrestling, boxing, and the Mexican rodeo.
Pre-school programming for kids have been expanded to include the channels BabyFirst Americas Español, Vme Kids and Discovery Kids, making the channel line-up for Xfinity Latino the most extensive in the US.
All the upgrades are at no additional charge—current Xfinity Latino customers will get an automatic upgrade, and can now start enjoying the new On Demand options for TV and online.
