Verizon Communications will give FiOS TV customers free access to its starter Spanish-language package, which comprises 27 channels including CNN en Espanol, Discovery Familia, EPSN Deportes and Gol TV, the week of Oct. 19-25.

The FiOS TV Spanish Language Package is normally available for $11.99 per month extra.

Verizon also offers La Conexion, a package that offers more than 120 channels in English and Spanish, for $39.99 per month.

The freeview - which the telco called "a salute to Spanish Heritage Month," which runs Sept. 15-Oct. 15 - will let viewers tune in to CNN's two-part documentary series, CNN Presents: Latino in America on Oct. 21 and 22 at 9 p.m. (ET). The special, reported by Soledad O'Brian, will be simulcast on CNN en Espanol as Ser Latino en EE.UU.
