Puerto Rico’s WAPA-TV and DISH Network have partnered to launch WAPA America as part of DISH Network’s DishLATINO Clasico package, bringing high quality Puerto Rican TV entertainment and sports programming to millions of viewers in the U.S.
WAPA America produces more than 40 hours per week of original, locally-produced entertainment programs from Puerto Rico, including “SuperXclusivo,” the highest-rated program in Puerto Rico, as well as more than 30 hours per week of live news produced by Puerto Rico’s largest and most trusted news-gathering team, “Noticentro.” The network also delivers the most popular sporting events in Puerto Rico, including the National Superior Basketball League games.
