Iran Launches Spanish-Language Satellite TV

Posted: Feb 02, 2012


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad officially launched HispanTV, a Spanish-language satellite TV network, on Tuesday, saying the station would help end the West's "hegemony" of the airwaves.

The launch of the station comes on the heels of Ahmadinejad's tour of Venezuela, Cuba and Ecuador in an attempt to build stronger ties in Latin America.

The station is available on satellite, the Internet and mobile devices. The Miami Herald reports that on Tuesday it ran programming reporting that U.S. citizens were not in favor of Iran sanctions, as well as content from TeleSur, the Latin American network launched in 2005 with the backing of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.
