Footprint of the 24-hour news channel extends from Alaska to the tip of southern America — a potential 300 million viewers. DirectTV satellite subs receive it all day while some local channels in the region pick up one to four hours of its broadcast.

No Mexican broadcaster carries it, most likely because the Mexican government is planning its own Ibero-American cultural channel.
