Univision launches sites for Telehit and Bandamax networks


Univision Interactive Media, the digital division of Univision Communications, has launched  two new sites for its new cable networks, Telehit and Bandamax. Available at UnivisionMusica.com, keywords Telehit and Bandamax, the sites will provide fans with direct access to music-related content from both networks.

Both sites feature short-length videos, photos, biographical info about the stars of the shows, the top five songs in each genre with direct links to purchase in iTunes and much more. Bandamax and Telehit’s sites are also strategically interlinked to one another so fans can travel easily between genres and content.   

Telehit’s new site showcases content from Latin America targeting more than two million trend-setting Hispanic youth with hip, urban programming. The Telehit network gives access to shows, such as “Guerra de Chistes” (Joke War), a comedian joke war between Juan Carlos Casasola, “El Borrego” Nava and Mariana Echeverria; “Telehit News,” keeping the audience up-to-date on the most current news in the entertainment world; and “Premios Telehit” (Telehit Awards), a star-studded annual awards show featuring performances and appearances by internationally recognized Latin and Anglo performers such as Camila, Maná and Simple Plan.

The Bandamax network and site are dedicated exclusively to the Regional Mexican genre. The cable network, which has 2.25 million subscribers, features programming such as “Al Sazón de la Música” (Musical Seasoning), which gives an intimate look into the kitchens of Latin singers and music groups as they cook their favorite recipe; “Pa’la Banda Night Show” (The Band’s Night Show), which features the hottest acts in the grupero world, such as Jenni Rivera, La Arrolladora Banda El Limón and Pequeños Musical; and “Los 15 Que Soñé” (The Sweet 15 of My Dreams), which is a program about 14-year old girls competing for the quinceañera party of their dreams.
