The Spanish-language network is producing almost no new shows, leaving affiliates to air repeats. It’s expected to shut down completely in the coming months. It never found a path after Fox pulled out.
The company’s Fox International Channels said Thursday it had sold its interest in U.S. Spanish-language broadcast network MundoFox to its joint-venture partner RCN Television Group, ending an ambitious bid by the media company to gain broader entry to the Spanish-language television market, which has long been dominated by Univision and NBCUniversal’s Telemundo.
MundoFox, a joint venture between Fox International Channels and the RCN Television Group will offer a lineup of original Spanish-language entertainment and sports programming.
