The Ultimate Fighting Championship
will launch a Spanish-language network in Latin America later this year on Televisa platforms. The 24/7 pay channel will be available in 20 countries.
A notable exception is Brazil, where Portuguese is the dominant language. There, the UFC has a link with another programmer. The network will air 35 live events, have access to a library of some 20,000 hours and offer originals, such as reality series.
Before the channel debuts, Televisa will be able to deliver UFC content to 20 Latin American countries beginning in June. It will make some live events available on free channels in Mexico and in other countries each year.
UFC programming is available in 145-plus countries in 28 languages.
