The Spanish-language Pasiones channel, dedicated to telenovelas and drama series, has reached a multiyear agreement with Charter Communications to launch this spring across Spectrum’s footprint in the U.S.
With the Spectrum launch, Pasiones will be available on all major cable, satellite and telco providers nationwide. Pasiones will be available on Spectrum’s Spanish-language tier, Mi Plan Latino. The carriage represents the first launch of Pasiones HD in the U.S.
“We applaud our partners at Charter for being the first MVPD in the U.S. that will launch Pasiones in HD, demonstrating their commitment to serve their Hispanic communities with the highest quality content,” said Alan J. Sokol, president and CEO of Pasiones parent company Hemisphere Media Group. “Since acquiring Pasiones in 2014, our significant investment in programming has driven the network’s tremendous growth and secured its distribution across all major cable, satellite and telco providers in the country.”
