"When viewers in New York City tuned in to MundoMax earlier this week, they got a surprise.


Instead of the RCN-owned Spanish-language network, which features a mix of telenovelas, reality and game shows, they got América Tevé, an independent Spanish-language network originating in Miami that focuses on news and entertainment.


América Tevé took over MundoMax’s NYC frequency, WPXO-LD 34.1, on Monday. It also replaced MundoMax in Puerto Rico that same day."


What will this mean for the rest of the affiliates? Will some ride it out or will they be proactive and switch?

I noticed that the station carrying MundoMax here in San Francisco has dropped it and is now carrying SBN in its place.

I hate to tell you but once Mundomax is gone your HIT.......Thanks Scripps Howard for that......They launched every subnet on their two KC owned stations that Meredith launches too that's why you have no subnets on KCTV and fixing to have none on KSMO.....What might happen is KSMO combine as a sub into KCTV since both are owned by the Meredith Corporation.....You can pitter patter about getting Get, Decades, H&I all you want but if Comet doesn't get launched on WDAF, H&I/Decades on your Hearst Stations, and Get on your Meredith, you pretty much going to have a lot of open sub spaces in the future....

Phoenix is also getting America TeVe. Sorry - I doubt it will last. Mexican-American audiences don't generally dig Cuban-American fare (the network is Miami-based) but we'll see.
