Caracol Internacional lands on DISH, DishLATINO in US
Juan Fernandez Gonzalez | 20 June 2015
DISH and DishLATINO have added Caracol Internacional, one of Colombia's leading channels, to their US portfolio, bringing more Latin-produced programming to Hispanics and bilinguals.
Caracol Internacional will bring to DISH successful shows like Noticias Caracaol, Sábados Felices and Desafío, in addition to various Caracol-produced series and telenovelas.
The network will be available in DishLATINO's Plus, Dos and Max packages, and in the Latino Bonus Pack, a premium service to complement DISH's English programming with the best Spanish-language shows.
“With nearly one million Colombians living in the US, more than from any other country in South America, adding Caracol Internacional helps us to diversify our programming and reach a larger audience”, said Alfredo Rodríguez, VP, DishLATINO. “It's a way of connecting Latino consumers living in the US with their roots”.
“Through the deal with DISH, we increase our coverage and Hispanic market share, opening a great window to export our content through,” explained Alejandro Bernal, manager for new networks at Caracol Internacional. “We're proud of working with DishLATINO and strengthening our commitment with the US market”.
