DirecTV Boosts Puerto Rican Lineup


DirecTV Inc. said Thursday that it has added three networks to its basic package in Puerto Rico.

De Pelicula, Telehit and Ritmoson Latino are now available at no additional charge to new and existing DirecTV subscribers, the direct-broadcast satellite provider said.

De Pelicula is a Spanish-language movie channel, Telehit is an urban-lifestyle and music channel aimed at young adults and Ritmoson Latino is a Latin-music channel.

“These new channels reinforce our commitment to delivering the most comprehensive selection of the best Spanish-language content to the island,” DirecTV Panamericana senior vice president and general manager Jacopo Bracco said in a prepared statement.
