“Audiences show great interest in the world of nature, and in lions and other big cats, especially. In response, we have organized an exciting week-long programming event showcasing our top nature series,” explained Erika Vogt-Lowell, the network’s Director of Programing and Acquisitions.
Since its launch, HITN’s “Tu Planeta” programming block, features a series about nature and wild animals, and has become the undisputed leader in the genre among Spanish language Pay TV networks in the United States. Its audience numbers have experienced steady growth, especially among families that enjoy watching television together.
The July programming stunt will include two of the most popular series in this genre, ‘África Salvaje” and “Los Grandes Felinos.” Both present interesting facts about African animals, including why the lion is known as the king of the jungle. Audiences will also be invited to watch for clues offered as part of an interactive contest to win a family trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park in Orlando, Florida.
