Spanish-language Canal 52MX will carry Canal 52
MEXICO CITY — Comcast will air MVS Television, one of Mexico’s few independent webs, Stateside.Starting this week, subscribers who have Comcast digital, CableLatino or Selecto packages will begin receiving the feed for Spanish-language Canal 52MX, which will carry the programming of MVS’ Mexican UHF channel, Canal 52. In addition, 15 hours of Canal 52MX programming will be available on demand. MVS, which has its primary audience in Mexico City, joins a crowded field of Mexican nets that have begun transmitting Stateside to the coveted Latino demographic in the U.S. Last year pubcasters Canal 22 and Canal Once (11) signed separate deals with DirecTV to transmit their signals in the States. MVS, in contrast to the two pubcasters’ PBS-like programming favoring symphonies and edutainment, offers viewers a mix of telenovelas, movies, comedy shows and news.
