Cox Adds Five Spanish Nets


Cox Communications Inc. will add five TuTv Spanish-language television networks to its “Paquete Latino” package, the programmer said Monday.

TuTv is a joint venture of Univision Communications Inc. and Grupo Televisa S.A.

The MSO launched the five channels -- movie channels De Pelicula and De Pelicula Clasico and music-and-lifestyle channels, Telehit, Ritmoson Latino and Bandamax -- in San Diego Aug. 17, and they will be added in markets such as Phoenix, Las Vegas and Omaha, Neb.

"We are always looking to enhance our programming to meet the needs of our customers,” Cox San Diego vice president of marketing Art Reynolds said in a prepared statement. “By adding De Pelicula, De Pelicula Clasico, Telehit and Bandamax to our Paquete Latino tier, we are able to offer even more top-quality Spanish-language programming.”
