The Venezuelan-based Cisneros Television Group (CGT) completed its acquisition Wednesday of 90% of Imagen Satelital, Argentina’s largest pay-box programmer and distributor, for a total of $112 million, $5 million more than previously reported (Daily Variety, May 16).

Gustavo Cisneros, chairman and CEO of the group, said the acquisition proves the Cisneros Group’s commitment to become a Spanish content provider.
