Dar TV, the First Spanish Movie Channel for the Americas

Dar TV, a new television channel backed by Spanish and American capital, will be offering 24-hour programming throughout the Americas.

The channel will feature 18 hours of Spanish movies daily, encompassing all eras and genres, with the remaining programming to be made up of interviews, short films, music programs featuring Spanish artists, and advertising.

Dar TV has chosen Corporate Satellite Communications of Florida to provide Teleport broadcast services and collocation space to support Dar TV's broadcasts in North and South America, as well as its expansion plans into Africa and Europe.  Additionally, CSC will represent Dar TV to US cable operators. The long-term agreement solidifies CSC's expansion into the content distribution market.

More about Dar TV

Dar TV has $10 million in share capital provided by private investors. The station will have a professional staff of twenty, divided between three locations: Madrid (programming and content management), Miami (broadcast center) and Guatemala (executive management).

The project’s president Manuel Gomez Roman, an independent film producer from Spain currently residing in Guatemala, announced the launch of Dar TV at Casa de America in Madrid and said the channel will be broadcasted to 180 million households.

Dar TV will be seen initially in Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, the United States, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. 

The network is looking to leverage the demand for Spanish content from a superlative audience. "The Americas are a natural secondary market for Spanish companies," says Gomez Roman. In addition to the language factor, the recent boom of Spanish actors such as Javier Bardem has also whetted demand.

However, Gomez Roman says that Dar TV "is not being promoted as a channel for Hispanic audiences only, but rather as a network targeted to the general public."  The new channel is slated to begin trial broadcasts in July and will be distributed via cable television system operators.
