Mexicanal, the US cable network featuring Mexican regional programming, is celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Launched in 2005 by Mexican company Cablecom and Castalia Communications from Atlanta, Mexicanal was originally distributed exclusively by DrectTV. Over the last few years, however, the channel’s distribution has expanded to include Comcast, Cablevision, Charter and AT&T, among other platforms.

“We are proud to have significantly expanded our coverage, which includes the main Hispanic markets in the United States,” said Luis Torres-Bohl, president of Mexicanal.

“And this is a great opportunity to reiterate my deepest gratitude to our viewers, the affiliated stations that provide programming in Mexico, our US distributors and my colleagues who work hard to ensure that Mexicanal offers quality and engaging programming to our viewers.”

Torres-Bohl added that the channel has revamped its image with a more dynamic and modern graphic presentation. This update includes new interstitials with different music, logos and animations.

The network operates from the city of San Luis Potosi in central Mexico, and offers entertainment, news, documentaries, sports and culture programmes from the states of Mexico, Nuevo Leon, Jalisco, Guanajuato and Michoacan.
