Our #GlobalFusion   #GoGlobal   #TheFuture   ..Smart move by Telemundo to claim its market share in Africa considering that for the past few years Africans have become some of the largest consumers of telenovelas.

"NBCUniversal's Universal Networks International said on Tuesday that the pay TV version of the broadcast network will, for the first time, become available outside of Latin America with its introduction in South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa on Aug. 12. It already reaches 21 countries in Latin America and will now add 48 African countries.

The African version of Telemundo will exclusively air telenovelas on Multichoice’s digital pay TV satellite platform DStv, using the tag line “Telemundo Feel the Passion.” It will fully dub Spanish-language programming into English for South Africa and most other countries, and into Portuguese for Angola and Mozambique.

“With the launch of Telemundo Africa, the region sees the birth of the first pay TV Latin American channel in the English language,” said Marcos Santana, president of Telemundo International.
