Hispanic TV: BuenaVision TV Network, Channel 3: Conquering the Latin Community in New York

BuenaVision TV Network, the recently launched network is now on-air and available on Channel 3, with numerous entertainment options for New York’s Latino community New York, August 29, 2012. BuenaVision TV has a local  offering for Latinos in the New York Tri-State area. The network offers an array of shows from partner channels in the Caribbean and Latin America as well as shows that will be produced and distributed locally, an innovative blend for the New York Hispanic TV industry.

The BuenaVision TV network, launched on WBQM Channel 3, covers 17.4 million television households in the New York area. Carlos Barba, President and CEO of BuenaVision TV shared that "we are looking forward to welcoming the Latin community to their new home away from home, a Spanish channel where they can reconnect with their cultures, homelands and families; a place where we can feel proud to be Latinos.” Carlos says the channel will cater to “Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, Colombians, Cubans and other Caribbeans and Central Americans living in New York. 56% of the population in NY is Hispanic.”

The channel just launched and has already made additions to its programming grid, such as acclaimed shows from Colombia’s renowned Jorge Barón; El Show de las Estrellas and Noticiero TelePaís.  El Show de las Estrellas, which airs Sunday evenings from 7:00 - 9:30 p.m., has been airing in Colombia since 1969, featuring international stars since its inauguration. Today it has become one of the most recognized shows in Latin America, having featured more than 35,000 artists and toured through the world’s prominent capitals such as Madrid, London, Mexico City, and Caracas.  Noticiero Telepaís airs weekday nights from 11:00 to 11:30 PM EST and is one of Colombia’s most viewed programs, focusing on positive news coverage, opportunities in the region, and reports about the community’s unsung heroes.  Both shows offer top-quality television from one of the region’s most established producers, Jorge Barón, who for over four decades has been a trailblazer in the Latin American TV industry.

BuenaVision’s primetime programming will include nightly news, interview & entertainment shows, plus a variety of popular movies from the big screen on CineClub.  One of the entertainment shows, Hollywood Express, is produced and filmed at Universal Studios in Los Angeles covering all of the celebrity happenings of the movie industry with Caroline Barba as the host.  Other partner providers include Color Visión Channel 9 in Dominican Republic and Teleoro Channel 13 in Puerto Rico.  The network will constantly scan the TV industry to bring the best program variety so that viewers in the Tri-State area can feel reconnected with their roots, while keeping up-to-date on the latest local and national cultural happenings.
