HBO Latino is a network aimed to the Latino American community. It often features the same types of programs as the regular HBO Channel, which is broadcast in English, but is broadcast in Spanish. This channel began in 2000 to meet the rising need for programming in Spanish because of the increase of Latinos in the viewing area. This network allows this population to watch programming more familiar to their daily life and in their native language, which leads to a better appreciation of their own culture.
This network offers original programming in both Spanish and Portuguese much like its counterpart. It also offers many Hollywood movies that have been dubbed so that they can be viewed in Spanish. HBO Latino also airs exclusive events such as boxing matches and musical concerts. This network is very successful in customizing their programming for Hispanics and Latin Americans and because of this, viewership continues to grow.
Many providers allow viewers to see HBO Latino On Demand so that viewers will never miss their favorite programming. Although most of the shows are simulcast with HBO, sometimes programs on the different HBO channels may vary. Most cable and satellite providers offer HBO Latino in their premium packages.
