Today marks exactly one year since MundoFox launched as the newest Spanish-language network in the U.S. It officially debuted at 7 am on August 13 of 2012 to much fanfare and expectations.
A year later, the network has produced only 2 original shows – both reality competitions. Currently in its second season, “Un Minuto para Ganar,” was moved to NYC. “El Factor X,” announced as an addition to the network, premiered on July 29, with several celebrity judges.
One thing the Los Angeles-based network does offer, which is different from any television network – in English or Spanish – is the airing of live national newscasts at 5:30 pm for both the east and west coasts.
The network has struggled to gain ground with viewers. Its presence is limited in NYC. It also went through a rough patch in Miami, suing América TeVé, its affiliate in that city, for breach of contract and signing a deal with WGEN-TV.
The network has yet to release any ratings.
