LOS ANGELES, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NUVOtv, the first and only English-language network created for Modern Latinos, announced today that NUVOtv is delivering the highest Hispanic audience composition, ranking as the #1 English-language network, in key prime and late fringe dayparts.
During the network's premiere weekend, NUVOtv original shows - Jennifer Lopez: Her Life. Her Journey., A Step Away, House of Joy, Mario Lopez: One-on-One and The Anjelah Johnson Homecoming Special, ranked #1 in their time periods with Hispanic audience comps, with original series delivering between 70% and 94%.
"The launch of NUVOtv's new slate of programming was a big success for the network, but more significant was the Hispanic comp of the audience tuning in," said Michael Schwimmer, CEO of NUVOtv. "For years we heard the doubts about whether – given their many viewing options - English-speaking Latinos really wanted culturally-relevant Latino themed content. Now the jury is in, and we have real numbers. The network's high Hispanic audience comp proves that if you deliver high quality, culturally relevant programming for Latinos, and it's well marketed, then this important audience will respond by tuning in."
Schwimmer went on to add, "Cable and satellite operators, as well as advertisers, who take a moment to understand the implications of our audience composition, will be thrilled to see that there is an exciting new strategy to reach high value Latino consumers, and marketers are not limited to relying upon the same old Spanish broadcast and cable network options."
NUVOtv (www.myNUVOtv.com) is the first and only English-language television network created for modern Latinos, embodying the spirit and multi-dimensional lifestyle of the modern Latino audience.
