SiriusXM announced today that it is increasing the amount of Spanish-language NFL programming available to subscribers nationwide, with live game broadcasts each week plus a new original Spanish-language NFL show.
Starting with this weekend’s AFC and NFC Championship games, subscribers will get access to Spanish-language broadcasts of all postseason games including the Super Bowl, and will get multiple games every week of the regular season starting in 2014.
Sunday’s New England Patriots @ Denver Broncos AFC title game (3:00 pm ET) and the San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks NFC title game (6:30 pm ET) will air in Spanish on Piolin Radio (SiriusXM channel 147).
Additionally, SiriusXM will launch a new show hosted by former NFL placekicker and veteran broadcaster Benny Ricardo. La Onda de la NFL will debut this Sunday, January 19 at 2:00 pm ET on Piolin Radio (SiriusXM channel 147) to preview the games. Ricardo will also host a new show Monday to recap the weekend’s results. Ricardo – who played 10 seasons in the league with the Detroit Lions, New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings, San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills – will also host special editions of the show during Hispanic Heritage Month and at special NFL events such as the Super Bowl and NFL Draft.
Spanish-language NFL programming is available to subscribers as part of the SiriusXM Latino programming lineup, which includes the best Spanish-language talk, entertainment, sports, and commercial-free music programming. The full SiriusXM Latino programming lineup is available across the SiriusXM Internet Radio App, online at SiriusXM.com, and via select satellite radios.
