New York, N.Y.,–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–November 20, 2003–This holiday season, for the first time ever, the Hispanic community can experience a new way of getting closer to their families, their history and the history of other cultures with DVDs En Español—Spanish language versions of award-winning shows from A&E(R), The History Channel(R) and the Emmy Award-winning Biography(R) series. A&E Television Networks (AETN) has launched a new service through its online store for U.S. Hispanics who enjoy home entertainment. The Official A&E Online Store, already the sole online source for over 5,000 home videos, is introducing a wide selection of Hispanic-themed and general interest titles in Spanish and English.

Designed to launch in two phases, the initial En Español product line will consist of 28 DVD titles dubbed in Spanish-language for Spanish-speaking Hispanics. The Official A&E Online Store will also offer 26 English-language titles on VHS and DVD that appeal to bilingual and English-speaking Hispanics. The Spanish language DVDs will be available exclusively at http://www.ShopAETV.com/espanol. Phase two of the launch is currently scheduled for 2004 and will feature a more comprehensive online store in Spanish.

The Spanish-dubbed titles being offered in the initial launch have previously aired on the AETN U.S. digital channel History International and include The History Channel shows Mexico and Cliff Mummies of the Andes, as well as A&E and Biography programs, including Ponce de Leon, Pancho Villa, Evita, Carmen Miranda, Andy Garcia, Mexico’s White House, The Power of Prayer, Machu Picchu, and The Riddle of the Maya.

The programming from A&E, Biography and The History Channel has great appeal to the Spanish-language and bilingual community who enjoy staying connected to their history and culture. The Official A&E Online store will continue to build its relationship with the Hispanic community by expanding its Spanish language product offerings throughout the upcoming year.
