Newcomer MundoFox, which has struggled with distribution since its debut in August of 2012, has made a major breakthrough.
Effective immediately, the Spanish-language broadcast network is now available to Time Warner Cable digital subscribers in the New York metro area on channels 807 and 1229.
Carriage on TWC is essential to increase the audience and fuel growth of the Fox-RCN joint venture, because of the cable company’s reach – the most important in the NY metro area.
Prior to the MundoFox-TWC agreement, the young network had almost no visibility in New York, because it aired on a low-powered América CV affiliate with limited cable carriage.
The TWC deal comes about 7 months after Ibra Morales was named President of MundoFox.
“Today marks a milestone in our continuously growing distribution efforts,” said Morales in a statement. “Time Warner Cable is an important partner to MundoFox.”
