Over the years, Spectrum cable TV has made a special place for itself among the Spanish speaking in the US. If you’re Hispanic and looking for a TV plan, Spectrum is sure to be the most common recommendation you’ll get for a provider. And, that makes sense. After all, they offer a curated selection of Spanish channels you’re sure to love—and they also take pride in showcasing the most Spanish language HD channels. But, that is not all. Even mainstream Spectrum cable packages include Telemundo in their channel lineup—in service locations where the concentration of the Hispanic community is on the higher end.
Telemundo is a terrestrial TV network owned by Comcast. Programming is available nationwide and also syndicated worldwide in 100 countries and 35 languages. Founded in 1984 as NetSpan, and rebranded as Telemundo a few years later, the network is a favorite among Spanish language speakers. A growing number of English-language speakers is also charmed by the gripping content Telemundo offers. Even when all they can understand is the English subtitles. With the third generation of Hispanic-Americans rising sharply, the sprinkling of English with subtitles and the embracing of “Spanglish”, gave Telemundo a clear edge over its competitor Univision.
Telemundo broadcasts original content created for Latin American audiences in the U.S. and worldwide. Programming consists of first-run telenovelas, films, Reality TV, sports, and news. The network has showcased Comedy in the past but does not include the genre in its current programming. Variety shows make a popular format on Spanish-language TV channels, however, Telemundo includes limited programming from this genre.
Telemundo is affiliated with free-to-air stations in many cities around the U.S. In regions where there is no local affiliate, national feed is accessible via some TV service providers only. That is why, as we said earlier, the network is carried by mainstream Spectrum cable packages in some regions, but is available as part of the Latino channel lineup in others.
Spectrum TV is not the one to disappoint audiences when it comes to its channel lineup. The provider offers a perfect balance of general entertainment, news, sports, lifestyle, family, and children’s programming. That is why this Hispanic favorite is not missed out by any means—rather included in the English channel lineup in cities where the Hispanic community forms a major cross-section of the population.
So, if you’re a resident of New York, Arizona, Texas, Florida, New Jersey, etc. you can choose any of the Spectrum cable packages, according to your TV needs and budget, and have access to Telemundo. Otherwise, you always have a choice. For instance, you can subscribe to Spectrum Mi Plan Latino with 145+networks that include 75 Spanish networks. Or add-on the Latino View to Spectrum TV Select Signature or TV Select Plus for a perfect combo of Spanish and English channels.
While it is great news that Spectrum TV offers Telemundo, it can still be a pain finding the channel number for your favorite network. Most channel numbers vary with region. And, when you are new to the Spectrum Family chances are you’ll take your own sweet time to get fluent with the channel numbers on your Spectrum TV lineup. Browsing with your eyes on alert scanning for Telemundo is not an option either. So, to find Telemundo on the Spectrum channel lineup easily, you will find the Spectrum on-screen guide truly helpful. The handy guide displays channels and their numbers in full screen on your TV, so you can browse through, search, filter out, and even manage personal lists conveniently!
Other than the guide, you can also use the Spectrum account to find a list of channels included in your subscription.
