Hero Prods., a Miami-based TV production and broadcast center, announced a three-year contract with United Family Communications to provide digital production, post-production and satellite uplink services for two LatAm nets.
United Family plans to launch the Family Channel and Casa Club TV in Spanish and Portuguese in July. The two family-oriented nets were originally scheduled to debut in March. Family Channel is already available in Mexico, but not in the rest of Latin America.
United Family is a joint venture between Intl. Family Entertainment of Virginia Beach and United Intl. Holdings of Denver.
