Sky Mexico, ESPN Intl. pact

MEXICO CITY — Mexican direct-to-home television broadcaster Sky Mexico will broadcast two of ESPN Intl.’s sports channels under a new agreement, the two companies announced Wednesday.

ESPN Latin America, the network’s 24-hour sports channel, will be available as part of Sky Mexico’s basic package, Sky Fun. ESPN Dos, the local sports channel for Mexico and Central America, will be included in the Sky Unlimited package.

Sky Mexico, with 48,000 subscribers, is part of Sky Entertainment Services, a satellite broadcast system created as a joint venture of News Corp., TCI, Globo of Brazil and Mexico’s Grupo Televisa.

ESPN Latin America is broadcast in Spanish, Portuguese and English to 8.7 million homes in the region. Of these, 1.8 million are in Mexico. ESPN Dos has 1.1 million subscribers in Mexico and Central America.

“Sky Mexico represents a great opportunity (for ESPN Intl.) to increase its presence in the region and continue to offer high-quality programming aimed at Mexican sports fans,” Richard Stone, ESPN VP of international sales, said in a statement.
