Comcast said Tuesday that it is marking Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15th-October 15th) with a range of dedicated VOD programming, including movies, specials that highlight the people, landscape, cuisine, culture and music of Latin America, and features on top Hispanic/Latino entertainers. "Comcast is proud to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and will provide more Latin On Demand content for our customers," Kim Taylor, Comcast's VP of multicultural marketing, said in a prepared statement. "Our Hispanic Heritage Month programming will be available in both English and Spanish, offering the most Hispanic content available in your home anytime."
Terra USA, a Miami-based Internet company and original digital content producer that targets a Latino demographic, has relaunched its broadband video service, Terra TV (note: the company is a subsidiary of Terra Latin America, which claims that its Web sites receive 60 million unique visits per month, including 8 million on Terra TV). The service, which is accessed from the Terra.com portal, offers programming free-of-charge in three "channels": Entertainment, News and Sports. The programming is presented in widescreen format with a 16:9 ratio and 640x360 pixels.
