New digital video package offers the best programming at the best value

New York – Time Warner Cable’s New York City Region announced the launch of El Paquetazo, a digital video package with a mix of English and Spanish-language channels designed to appeal to a wide base of New York City’s Latino residents.
El Paquetazo is an attractively priced package designed to meet the evolving interests of the Latino cable viewer in New York City.  It combines the "best-of" Spanish-language channels with popular English-language networks all for under $35 a month.   El Paquetazo offers Time Warner Cable customers access to the best blend of programming in the market and consists of 40 Spanish-language, over 80 English-language networks and 18 high definition channels that are conveniently organized by genre including sports, news and music.  “All New Yorkers bridge many worlds. This new programming option reflects the bi-cultural landscape of which so many Americans are a part,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, Time Warner Cable’s Regional President of Residential Services.

“Today's announcement is exciting because it demonstrates how Time Warner Cable is customizing video packages that appeal to bi-cultural communities.  For almost one-third of our residents, Spanish is spoken fluently, and we understand these households want programming that reflects their lives – a mix of Spanish and English.  This package offers just that – a wide spectrum of programming at a great value,” Hirsch added.
