DirecTV Launches SUR Mexico


SUR Mexico will join DirecTV Inc.’s “DirecTV Para Todos” package later this fall.

The network reairs current news and information programming from 10 regional stations in Mexico, and it “is designed to offer Mexicans from outside the Mexico City area an unfiltered link to the programming they watched at home,” the direct-broadcast satellite provider said.

“With the introduction of SUR Mexico, we are providing the best regional channels of interest to the 95% of Mexicans who immigrated to the United States from regions outside Mexico City,” DirecTV senior director of marketing Mark Ryan said in a prepared statement.
