Dish Network launches “Pasiones” Channel


DISH Network announced the launch of Pasiones (, a new 24-hour Spanish channel fully dedicated to the soap opera/telenovela genre. Pasiones airs exclusively on DISH Network Channel 834, and enhances DISH Network’s new comprehensive DishMEXICO package, which caters exclusively to the U.S. Mexican audience. The channel is also available via DISH Network’s DishLATINO packages.

Pasiones was successfully launched in Latin America in July 2008, and since then, has obtained daily primetime averages comparable to many of the well-established TV channels in the region, and in most of the countries, broke into the Top 25 ranking in its first month of operations.
