In the latest of a series of changes to channels that it has made in 2011, Spanish Mediapro's laSexta 2 will be turned into a telenovelas channel.

First of all it was born laSexta 3, the broadcaster's third channel that specialised in showing film all day long and now laSexta 2 will change its programming schedule into a telenovelas channel from 4 July. By night laSexta 3s offering will be made up of teleshopping and talk shows and no more telenovelas will be broadcast.

laSexta 2 will take advantage of the huge Televisa library given that the company is one of laSexta's main shareholders with 40% of its shares. Televisa already has a telenovelas channel precisely called TeleNovelas, which is distributed to Spain's pay-TV operators.
