The fastest growing demographic in the US is getting more and more love from major media companies. And that population is the hispanic population. Multiple companies with streaming content including Roku, Tubi, Sling TV and Pluto TV have been targeting Spanish speakers of late and today, Tastemade announced the launch of Tastemade en Español – the modern media company’s first-ever Spanish-language streaming TV channel with hundreds of hours of lifestyle programming.
Debuting during National Hispanic Heritage Month, Tastemade en Español is now available in the U.S. on the Roku® platform via The Roku Channel, and will be streaming on VIZIO SmartCast and XUMO in the coming weeks. Distribution of the new streaming TV channel kicks off in the U.S. and will be coming to Latin America later this year.
With the launch of the Tastemade en Español streaming TV channel, Tastemade builds upon an existing legacy of creating premium programming for their global Spanish-language audience. Reaching more than 62 million households in the U.S., Tastemade en Español’s diverse, ever-growing library of content spans the categories of food and travel with Spanish-language Tastemade Originals and hit series in English with Spanish subtitles. Programming highlights include food and travel series ArgenMex, Cook & Laucha 2X1, Patagonia Viva, and the documentary Fuego, featuring beloved Argentine chef and influencer, Luciano ¨Laucha¨ Luchetti.
Not only is Tastemade one of the first to launch a Spanish-language streaming TV channel in the lifestyle category, but also Tastemade en Español is the first Spanish-language streaming TV channel in the lifestyle category on The Roku Channel.
