HBO inks Fox Kids deal

Channel third-most-watched overall in October 2002

MIAMI — HBO Latin America Group has been tapped to handle distribution of feevee Fox Kids throughout the region including Brazil.

The basic cable kiddie net was previously distributed by parent Fox.

However, the Fox Kids Latin America channel is now owned and operated by Disney (Latin America), which took over the feevee last year as part of the Mouse House’s $5.2 billion cash-and-debt purchase of the Fox Family basic cable web and related international assets.

Disney has not yet renamed the Fox Kids channel in this region, where the existing brand is strong.

According to a panregional ranking designed by ratings service Ibope (weighing cable ratings in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Chile), Fox Kids was the third-most-watched channel overall in October 2002, bested only by Cartoon Network Latin America and Nickelodeon Latin America.

HBO Latin America also handles distribution of Disney Channel Latin America and Brazil, which is a premium feevee.

The HBO Latin America Group is co-owned by Disney, AOL Time-Warner, Sony Pictures and Ole Communications.
