Innovative Cable TV Makes New Spanish Tier Available

 Innovative Cable TV has just launched a new and improved Spanish Tier. In January 2013, Innovative was compelled to remove the existing Spanish Tier due to changes made by the programmer. Since then, company executives have worked diligently to secure a new contract with an alternate programmer and six channels are now available to subscribers for the monthly fee of $8.50.
The Spanish Tier includes favorites that have moved to new locations on the channel line-up: Channel 180-TR3s, Channel 181-Discovery en Espanol, Channel 184-CNN Espanol, Channel 185-ESPN, DePortes and Channel 186-History en Espanol. “Viendo Movies” replaces “Cine Latino,” formerly on Channel 303, and it airs on Channel 182. “Viendo Movies” offers a selection of award-winning movies from Puerto Rico, Latin America, Spain and other Spanish speaking countries. The channel features blockbuster and independent films including popular genres such as action, drama, comedies and romance.
Graciela Rivera, vice president of Cable TV Services, said “Innovative Cable TV thanks our viewers for their patience and interest in the restoration of these Spanish language channels. Within the next month we will be expanding the Spanish Tier and including a new channel that features popular novellas and lifestyle programming.”
“We encourage everyone to stay tuned for additional digital and high-definition channels that will be launched shortly on our system,” said Rivera.
