Televisa and Telemundo have come to an important strategic agreement stipulating that original Telemundo content will air on Televisa in Mexico.

Televisa’s Channel 9 will broadcast more than 1,000 hours per year of original programming from Telemundo, the companies stated in a press release. “Together, Telemundo’s content and Televisa’s distribution strength in Mexico will give viewers exciting new options for entertainment content,” NBC Universal (which owns Telemundo) president and CEO Jeff Zucker said. “Telemundo remains an important part of our international strategy, and this is just the latest step in its dynamic growth.”

“This landmark agreement is another milestone in our long-term objective to reach Hispanic audiences all over the world with our high-quality original productions,” Don Browne, president of Telemundo Communications Group, added.
