V-me now officially the 4th largest U.S. Hispanic broadcaster
NEW YORK – V-me today solidified its claim as the fourth largest U.S. Hispanic broadcaster of any kind – after only Univision, Telemundo and Telefutura. With nearly 40 digital affiliate broadcast channels, V-me now has full over-the-air distribution in every one of its affiliate markets.
Those digital broadcast homes, added to V-me’s basic cable carriage in those same markets, plus the network’s nationwide satellite distribution in the basic and Hispanic packages of both DirecTV and DISH network, as well as coverage via Verizon FiOS and AT&T U-verse, puts V-me in 70 percent of all U.S. Hispanic TV Households.
Since launching in 2007, V-me has surpassed all existing Spanish cable channels to become the fastest-growing Spanish-language network in history. In addition to its broad national reach, V-me’s diverse programming offer has brought new viewers to Spanish TV. New consumer profiles from Simmons show that V-me delivers diverse, highly-desirable Latinos who are not watching other Spanish networks.
“Today we’re proud to call V-me not only the fastest-growing Hispanic network, but the 4th largest,” said Carmen DiRienzo, president and CEO, V-me. “V-me was an early adopter of digital television, because we anticipated the day would come when we could give more Latino families free access to our quality content.”
