EstrellaTV the fastest growing, minority owned Spanish- language television network in the U.S. announced today that it experienced growth in every daypart, standing out as the only Spanish language network to grow its audience across all time periods.
In 2017, EstrellaTV continued experiencing consistent growth year over year while its competitors were down in Total Day among adults 18-49. EstrellaTV was up +12%, while Telemundo was down -6%, Univision dropped -10%, Unimas slipped -4%, Galavision was down -11% and Universo dropped -19%, making EstrellaTV the only Spanish-language network, broadcast or cable that experienced any growth in Total Day in 2017 as compared to 2016. EstrellaTV was the only network in Spanish Language TV to show growth across every daypart.
EstrellaTV's dynamic and fast-paced entertainment, news and reality-based programming has been the winning formula for the network's steady growth and success since its inception, and a strategy that many of its competitors have recently started emulating.
"We are committed to continue making EstrellaTV a top programming destination for Hispanics living in the US who seek a better option to the outdated telenovela and long series format and the never-ending string of Tele-narcos. At EstrellaTV, we understand that humor and entertainment are at the core of our Latino audience's taste when it comes to their viewing habits in the US," stated Lenard Liberman, CEO, LBI Media, parent company to EstrellaTV Network.
