Televisa, Mexican Cable Companies Seek Third TV Network

Mexico’s cable industry called for the creation of a third television network, a sign that the nation’s dominant broadcaster, Grupo Televisa SAB, is growing more comfortable with the idea of new competition.

National Cable Telecommunications Chamber President Alejandro Puente, speaking at the industry’s annual gathering, called on Mexican President Felipe Calderon to auction airwaves to create a new broadcast network. Mexico City-based Televisa is a member of the chamber and owns three of Mexico’s largest cable-TV carriers.
