How Can Spanish Nets Grow Comcast Distribution?

Posted by | Subchannel Report

Traditionally Spanish broadcast networks invest their time and energy into building up affiliates in markets that have a high Spanish-speaking population. With the increases in channel capacities and with cable companies looking for any advantage to secure new customers a robust slate of Spanish program sources is part of that playbook.

We already see in the Spanish market some networks doing direct deals with DBS providers (who traditionally don’t carry subchannels) in their key markets. But other networks are also willing to do these blended deals between MVPD and broadcast. However, we don’t have to look far but to find Sinclair’s purchase of The Tennis Channel as proof that the time is right for programmers (like Spanish nets) to cross the rubicon to cobble together their national deals where ever they may come.

Unduplicated subscribers: Subscribers counted one time per market per MVPD regardless if group or network has multiple stations and channels on MVPD.

Subscribers partly estimated using FCC COALS data and Census data.
