STAMFORD, Conn. – Charter Communications, Inc. today announced the addition of the Spanish-language religious network ESNE TV to its Spectrum TV lineup. ESNE TV, which focuses on programming for the Catholic Hispanic community, is available at no additional cost to subscribers of Charter’s Mi Plan Latino and Latino View TV packages.
“The addition of ESNE TV to our Latino-focused video offering will give our customers access to even more Spanish-language religious programming,” said Tom Montemagno, Executive Vice President of Programming Acquisition for Charter, which operates the Spectrum brand of TV, Internet, Mobile and Voice services. “ESNE TV’s wide variety of programs, including live services, films and shows, aligns with our commitment to provide programming that meets the interests of our subscribers and the communities we serve.”
Launched in 2002, the Los Angeles-based ESNE TV offers daily live coverage of the Holy Mass, including from the Vatican with Pope Francis on special occasions. The network also carries news from the Vatican, liturgical celebrations, films and documentaries, and other programs centered on religious stories of interest to the Catholic-Hispanic community. Daily shows include “En El Corazon de Jesus,” a reading of the gospel of the day according to the Liturgy of the Catholic Church, and “Siempre Alegres,” a live daily broadcast from the ESNE Television studios in Guadalajara, Mexico.
“ESNE is more than a channel, it is a connection to God and offers a way for the Catholic community to celebrate their faith and keep their spirituality at the forefront of their daily lives,” said Rosie Sayes, Chief of Content for ESNE TV. “We are excited to make ESNE available to Charter’s Spectrum TV customers across the country and to bring our faith-centered programming to an even wider Spanish-language audience.”
