Independent producer Radar TV is investing $4.5 million to introduce paybox Travel News Network in Latin America in November.
Radar is negotiating carriage with operators, Radar’s general director Paulo Ricci said.
TNN will initially have feeds in Portuguese for Brazil and Spanish for the rest of Latin America. Ricci said Radar has already produced more than 100 hours of programming for TNN and also will air shows from indie producers in Latin America and outside the region.
“We will be the first Brazilian channel targeting international audiences,” he added.
Radar is part of the Mixer media group, which includes helmer Carlos Diegues’ (“Bye Bye Brasil”) producing company Lux Mixer.
