US cable operator Comcast has added eight Latin TV channels to its offering, increasing its reach by 14 million Latin subscribers.

The new channels are TV Azteca's Azteca América, Televisa's Galavisión, HITN, LATV, Telefutura, Telemundo, mund2 and Univisión.

The FCC, the US telecommunication and the audiovisual official association, had asked the operator to add three new channels within a short period of time, and now the company has added eight new ones. Comcast has a total of over 23 million clients in the US.

David Jensen, Content Acquisitions VP at Comcast, commented: “We are pleased to be bringing more Hispanic programming to millions of consumers across the U.S. Comcast strives to deliver programming that brings the world to our customers, and I’m proud that we were able to go far beyond our commitment by delivering this great new programming.”
