Recently I had the pleasure of participating in a panel at B&C/Multichannel News's eighth annual Hispanic Television Summit which took place in New York earlier this month. The Summit is the television industry's signature conference for executives involved in the business of television and digital video targeted to the US Hispanic and Latin American viewing audience.

During the session we discussed Comcast's focus on attracting and retaining Hispanic customers by providing them with new and relevant programming and products that offer them more choice and control. Click here to see the complete article published in Multichannel News based on the panel.

The rest of October and November will feature exciting new programming for all Hispanic audiences. Amongst the most anticipated is certainly "India," a telenovella which tells a contemporary love story set between India and Brazil. India is the winner of the 2009 International Emmy Award for Best Telenovella, and is now airing on the Telefutura network and is available On Demand (En Espanol > Univision On Demand > India).

We are also featuring "Monica and David," a documentary film by first-time Hispanic filmmaker Alexandra Codina, which explores the marriage of two adults with Down syndrome and the family who strives to support their needs. Winner of the "Best Documentary Feature" at the recent Tribeca Film Festival, "Monica and David" just debuted on HBO and HBO Latino on October 14 and is now available On Demand.

Stay tuned for more Hispanic programming highlights.
