Chile channels swap shows

World Brief

Terrestrial channels owned by the newly formed Claxon Interactive Group in Chile and Argentina have begun to swap programming.

In the first of what is expected to be an increasing number of trades, ChileVision swapped a program on UFOs in exchange for documentaries by Argentinean production house Cuatro Cabezas.
