EchoStar Communications Corp.’s Dish Network added Telemundo Puerto Rico, NBC Universal Cable's Spanish-language network, to its Hispanic package, officials said Wednesday.
Dish is offering Telemundo Puerto Rico to its “DishLatino” subscribers.
Telemundo Puerto Rico offers more than 30 hours per week of news broadcast directly from WKAQ-TV, with programming including morning newscast Telenoticias AM and Telenoticias, which consists of three daily editions to keep viewers informed with up-to-the-minute news as it happens on the island.
Telemundo Puerto Rico will be available in several Dish packages: DishLatino for $24.99 per month; “DishLatino Plus” for $29.99; “DishLatino Dos” for $34.99; “DishLatino Max” for $44.99; and the “DishLatino Everything Pack
for $79.99 per month.
Puerto Ricans make up more than 10% of the U.S. Hispanic population. They are among the fastest-growing ethnic groups in the United States, and they will continue to increase over the next five years.
Telemundo Puerto Rico's programming lineup may be tailored to the Puerto Rican community, but it is attractive to all U.S. Hispanics, the programmer said.
