US channel Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network (HITN TV), whose programming focuses on educational content in Spanish, announced that it has came to terms with DirecTV to join the DTH grid in Puerto Rico, where it is available from last March 1st, on channel 764, as well as through the channel’s OTT, HITN GO.
‘We are delighted that HITN TV content is being featured on Directv Puerto Rico, which will allow HITN TV to reach more families with our educational and entertainment content’, reported Eric Turpin, General Manager at HITN TV. ‘Through this partnership, we are strengthening our growth strategy on the island’, added the executive.
As a result of the agreement between HITN and DirecTV in Puerto Rico, the DTH subscribers on the island will be able to access various content on the channel available in Spanish, including educational programs, nature and science documentaries, and health and wellness content. The HITN GO app can be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play, Apple TV, and Roku.
HITN TV’s arrival at Puerto Rico took place at the end of January 2020, after an agreement between the channel and Liberty Puerto Rico, a subsidiary of Liberty Latin America, to include its content in the operator’s grid, on the Ultimate News & Educationary U-Pick Learning package.
