Mexico will provide, through the EDUSAT Network, operated by Educational Television of the Secretariat of Public Education (SEP) and the Latin American Institute for Educational Communication technology, infrastructure for a satellite signal with cultural and educational content made available to all the Latin American region.

 

 

Javier Treviño Cantu, Undersecretary for Planning and Evaluation of Educational Policies for Mexico’s Secretariat of Public Education (SEP), said during an interview with Mexican daily La Jornada, that this “is the first television channel of open service on this scale, where public television and cultural institutions from Mexico and Latin America will have a role.”

The project will involve various institutions including the Public Radio Broadcasting System of Mexico, State Channel 22, Channel 11, TVUNAM, channels of the legislative and judiciary branches as well as state broadcasters throughout the country; all will jointly cooperate with this new opportunity of information and communication for all of Latin America.

 

 

Treviño added that in the coming months a programming grid that integrates the best series and cultural and educational programs of public broadcasters in the region will be integrated.

 

 

The channel will begin broadcasting via satellite and Internet in November.
