Corus to bring Hispanic TV giant Univision to Canada
Corus Entertainment’s Telelatino Network is bringing the giant Hispanic network Univision to Canada.
Corus is set to rebrand TLN en Español as part of a licensing agreement with Univision Communications to launch Univision Canada.
The licensing deal builds on a decade-long relationship between Univision and Telelatino, which already airs a slew of Univision shows, including the Latin Grammy Awards, the FIFA World Cup and series like Sábado Gigante, Primer Impacto and El Gordo y La Flaca.
“The Spanish speaking community in Canada is an important and growing multicultural group,” Telelatino Network president Aldo Di Felice said Tuesday in a statement.
Telelatino’s cable specialty channel TLNE has a subscription base of 1.7 million homes in Canada.
