TORONTO, Oct. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- Telelatino Network Inc. welcomed today's CRTC approval of its applications for 3 newly available country/region specific Spanish language TV channels operated by US based Hemisphere Media Group. The channels Televisión Dominicana, Centroamerica TV and WAPA America provide news, entertainment and sports programming (including popular sports like national soccer, basketball and baseball) from the Dominican Republic, Central America and Puerto Rico respectively.
Telelatino President, Aldo Di Felice explains that there are many reasons for Canadians to be interested in the newly arrived TV channels. He noted that the Toronto Blue Jays, who play the furthest from Latin America, earlier this season set an MLB record by having six players born in the Dominican Republic in their starting lineup. "After we win the World series in a few weeks, every forward-thinking Canadian baseball fan will be wanting to watch the future Jays playing baseball in their home countries on these new TV channels!"
Telelatino which exclusively represents and manages Canadian marketing and distribution of the channels will soon be announcing the carrier platforms across Canada on which the channels will become available.
