Mexicanal programming lineup features a dynamic range of Spanish-language content encompassing news, cultural programming, culturally relevant programs, sports and popular entertainment from public broadcasters, independent producers and local access stations throughout Mexico.
In addition, the MEXICANAL Network has earned several coveted Promax/BDA Promotion and Marketing Awards for its outstanding promotional spots and campaigns.
MEXICANAL Network has garnered appreciation for its efforts to create awareness among the Hispanic community about important social and educational programs. One such example is the IME Scholarship Program, a fund that aims to elevate the educational level of first-generation Hispanics in the United States and Canada.
Castalia Communications was founded in 1991 to serve as a catalyst for new communications ventures worldwide. Over the past 18 years, Castalia has become a leading independent distributor of broadcast, satellite, cable and web-based programming and technology internationally. Castalia and Cablecom, one of the largest cable operators in Mexico, recognized the need for programming from numerous regions throughout Mexico because the majority of Mexicans living in the U.S. come from places other than Mexico City. This led to the creation, launch, distribution and management of Mexicanal in 2005, the first regional news, information and entertainment television network for Mexicans in the US, Mexico and Canada. Signing programming affiliations with broadcasters from different states, MEXICANAL Network is now able to provide precisely that kind of programming.
The Network has been recognized for its innovative accomplishments. The channel made headlines when it opened its state-of-the-art production and transmission facility in San Luis Potosi, in central Mexico. Utilizing a unique file delivery system for programming which greatly reduced time and costs for scheduling, transmission and storage and eliminated the use of videotape, the facility was a first among Latin American broadcasters.
