"Only six weeks have passed since we announced MundoFox, and we have dramatically exceeded our expectations by securing affiliate partnerships in many of the key U.S. Hispanic markets," said Hernan Lopez, president and CEO of Fox International Channels.
The initial affiliate list includes flagship station KWHY in Los Angeles, owned by the Meruelo Group and WJAN in Miami owned by America CV Group. The roster of affiliates also includes stations in San Antonio, San Francisco, Phoenix, Sacramento, Fresno, Las Vegas, West Palm Beach (Fla.) and Monterrey (Calif.).
"The positive response and increasing interest by affiliates is a true testament to the goal of MundoFox, which is to fill the gap in Latino entertainment in the U.S. and bring quality content and differentiation from the options currently available to Spanish-speaking viewers," said Gabriel Reyes, CEO of RCN.

I'm glad KWHY-TV Channel 22 will be MundoFox Affilliate they will show MundoFox shows, documentary, news, soap operas and Sports events. I want to Watch The Simpsons in Spanish and I want to watch sit-coms shows in Spanish and I want to watch UEFA Soccer games, Copa Libertadores, Major League Baseball, NFL Football and Tennis and other MundoFox's Programming but I'm glad they will not showing Mexican Movies and Paid Programming anymore on KWHY-TV Channel 22. I hope MundoFox on KWHY-TV Channel 22 will be having a good rating and good programming.
