SUR PERU Celebrates One-Year Anniversary


Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–July 17, 2006–SUR PERU, the most watched TV channel by the Peruvian community in the United States and the first channel from Peru with international carriage, celebrates its one-year anniversary on July 23rd.

“We at SUR PERU are extremely proud to have become the favorite channel for Peruvians living in the U.S.,” says Mónica Brown, SUR PERU’s manager. “Our viewers can tune in each day for the most direct link to the daily reality of their homeland and a true international representation of the Peruvian culture.”

Brown attributes much of the network’s success over the last year to “delivering fresh and contemporary 100% Peruvian programming to its viewers”, including renowned journalist Jaime Bayly’s political show “El Francotirador”; variety show “Magaly TeVe”, the highest rated in Peru; “Prensa Libre”, hosted by lawyer Rosa María Palacios; children’s show “D la Re”; cooking show “Cocinando con Don Pedrito”; telenovela “Asi es la vida”; and comedy “Divorciados”.

SUR Peru partners with the top television stations in Peru, like America TV and Frecuencia Latina, the top two rated broadcast networks throughout Peru. The programs from America, Frecuencia Latina and SUR Peru’s other partners are re-broadcast in the US exactly as they are presented in Peru. More than 50 hours a week are shown live – exactly as they are airing in Peru.


SUR PERU is home of top-rated programming from Peru with exclusive broadcasts from America TV, the number one broadcaster in Peru; Frecuencia Latina, the number two broadcaster in Peru; ATV, PAX Television, TV UNSA from Arequipa, Canal 27 UHF and independent production companies; plus programming from Radio Programas Peru, the leading news radio group in Peru. The channel is a full general-entertainment broadcaster featuring news, dramas, comedy series and special events. Founded in 2005, it is available in the U.S. through DirecTV PARA TODOS and is represented by Condista.

SUR PERU is a subsidiary of the Canal SUR Corporation, which was founded in 1991 by Latin American radio and television industrialist Hector Delgado Parker who noticed the information gap Latin Americans had from their home countries when compared to the abundance of information from North America and Europe.
