    Mexico's Slim to launch TV channel in U.S. for Mexicans

    Mexico's Slim to launch TV channel in U.S. for Mexicans

    Mexican tycoon Carlos Slim's cell-phone company, America Movil, said on Tuesday it would launch a television channel in the United States targeting Mexican audiences later this year, putting it into competition with broadcasters like Univision and Telemundo.

    Named Nuestra Vision, the channel will be offered by the America Movil unit Publicidad y Contenido Editorial, the company said in a statement that was flanked by a promotional video online.

    "Nuestra Vision is focused on Mexicans, made by Mexicans and transmitted from Mexico," said the voice-over for the video, which was studded with images and snapshots of Mexico.

    Slim, a major force in pay TV in Latin America, has been kept out of the Mexican market by regulators wary of the financial muscle he can bring to bear from his telecoms empire.

    America Movil is the biggest cell phone company in Latin America, and helped to make Slim the richest man in the world for several years.
    Univision has a close alliance with Mexico's top broadcaster Televisa, which has for years wrestled with Slim in the Mexican telecommunications market that he dominates.

    Nuestra Vision - "Our Vision" - will broadcast news, movies and sports highlights, America Movil said, stressing the company's pledge to be "100 percent" Mexican and promote Mexico's heritage.

    The channel's launch coincides with a charged atmosphere between Mexico and the incoming U.S. president Donald Trump, who has taken an aggressive stance towards the Mexican economy and sparked dismay with outspoken comments on migrants.

    Trump has proposed taking punitive steps against producers of Mexican-made goods in an effort to bring jobs and investment back to the United States, and has also threatened to tear up a joint trade deal that underpins Mexico's export model.

    Slim was critical of Trump during the U.S. election campaign, but after meeting the New York real estate magnate for dinner last month, he was left was a "very positive" impression from the president-elect, the Mexican mogul's spokesman said.

    An estimated 35 million people living in the United States are Mexican or of Mexican background.

    I wonder how many people living in the United States are from the United Kingdom descent? Maybe Great Britain should start a television company for these people. I wonder how many people living in the United States are from European descent? Maybe the EU should start a television company for these people. I wonder how many people living in the United States are from African descent? Maybe Liberia should start a television company for these people. I wonder how many people living in the United States are from Asian descent? Maybe China should start a television company for these people.

    Oh my, that's more channels than our own MSM!!

    Mexico is so funny. Such a beautiful country but never has a good idea.

    Broadcast television in languages other than English

    Several Spanish language broadcast (as well as cable) networks exist, which are the most common form of non-English television broadcasts. These networks are not as widely distributed over-the-air as their English counterparts, available mostly in markets with sizeable Latino and Hispanic populations; several of these over-the-air networks are alternatively fed directly to cable, satellite and IPTV providers in markets without either the availability or the demand for a locally based owned-and-operated or affiliate station.

    The largest of these networks, Univision, which launched in 1986 as a successor to the Spanish International Network (which debuted in September 1962, with Spanish language independent stations KMEX-TV in Los Angeles and KCOR-TV (now KWEX-DT) in San Antonio, Texas as its charter stations), has risen to become
    the fifth highest-rated television network in the U.S. (behind NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox) and is the dominant Spanish language network in the U.S., with its ratings having risen to levels where it has beaten at least one of its English language competitors since the late 1990s; although the network originally featured programming content from a variety of distributors, the network now relies mainly on programs sourced from Mexico's dominant broadcaster, Televisa (which has maintained partial ownership of Univision's corporate parent on and off throughout its history) as well as domestically produced programming. Its major competition is Telemundo, a sister network of NBC (which acquired Telemundo in 2001) and was considered an also-ran to Univision until the late 2000s, when parent company NBCUniversal began heavily investing in its news and entertainment programming; unlike Univision, the majority of Telemundo's programming is produced specifically for the network and in addition to carrying the traditional programming format for Spanish language broadcasters (which typically incorporates telenovelas, variety series, news, sports and films imported from Latin American countries), also includes dubbed versions of American feature film releases.

    Other popular Spanish-language broadcast networks are Univision-owned UniMás, which was launched in January 2002 and is aimed at a younger Hispanic demographic; Azteca, the American version of Mexico's Azteca networks, which debuted in July 2001; MundoMax, originally a sister network to the English language Fox network, which was launched in August 2012 by Fox International Channels and Colombian broadcaster RCN Television (which assumed full ownership of the network in May 2015); and independent networks Estrella TV (which began as a programming format on Liberman Broadcasting's Spanish language independent stations in the early 2000s and eventually launched nationally in September 2009, featuring a traditional lineup of Latino-focused programming largely produced by Liberman) and LATV (which originated in 2002 as a programming format on KJLA in Los Angeles before becoming a national network in September 2007, and focuses mostly on unscripted music, talk and variety programs).


    French
    language programming
    is generally limited in scope, with some locally produced French and creole programming available in the Miami area (serving refugees from Haiti) and Louisiana, along with some locales along the heavily populated Eastern Seaboard. Francophone areas near the eastern portion of the Canada–United States border generally receive television broadcasts presented in the language from French Canadian networks (such as Ici Radio-Canada Télé and TVA), which are widely available over-the-air and on cable in those areas.


    Many large cities also have television stations that broadcast programming in various Asian languages
    (such as KTSF in San Francisco and KYAZ in Houston), especially after the digital television transition, which has allowed some smaller stations in areas with heavy populations of Asian immigrants and American natives of Asian origin fluent in one of that continent's indigenous languages to carry such programming either as primary channel or subchannel affiliations.


    There have also been a few local stations that have broadcast programming in American Sign Language, accompanied by English closed captioning. Prior to the development of closed captioning, it was not uncommon for some public television programs to incorporate ASL translations by an on-screen interpreter. An interpreter may still be utilized for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community for on-air emergency broadcasts (such as severe weather alerts given by local governments) as well as televised press conferences by local and state government officials accompanied by closed captioning.
