DirecTV Offers Taste of Peru


SUR Peru will be added to DirecTV Inc.’s lineup, the direct-broadcast satellite provider said Wednesday.

The network airs Peruvian programming from that country’s America TV, Canal N and Frecuencia Latina.

SUR Peru will be available to “DirecTV Para Todos” subscribers later this summer.

“There is an ever-increasing Peruvian population in the United States whose programming needs have been virtually ignored by pay TV services," DirecTV senior director of marketing Mark Ryan said in a prepared statement.

“We believe SUR Peru is the remedy, bringing Peruvian families closer to home by offering 100% Peruvian content 24 hours a day that includes comedies, game shows, sportscasts, theater productions, news, talk shows, political programs and financial newsmagazines,” he added.
