BBC’s ‘Click’ in Spanish is coming to the US, Uruguay and Mexico

MUMBAI: The Spanish-language edition of the BBC’s flagship digital technology programme, ‘Click’, is now available to viewers of the Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network (HITN) in the US.

Later this year, the programme will also be broadcast on Uruguay’s state telecommunications company Antel, via its Vera+ platforms, and Mexico’s state broadcaster Sistema Publico de Radiodifusion del Estado Mexicano, SPR, via its ‘Una Voz con Todos’ digital television platform.

The first 24-part weekly series of ‘Click’ in Spanish is a collaboration between the BBC’s Spanish-language service, BBC Mundo, BBC News and Argentine-based Non Stop Digital S.A. – and features regional as well as international reports from the world of digital technologies.

This is the first time that ‘Click’, BBC’s popular, comprehensive guide to the latest technology news, is being made available for Spanish-speaking audiences. The 28-minute episodes, hosted by Argentinian presenter, Natalia Pupato, will bring the latest on new gadgets, games and apps around the world, with a special focus on stories from Latin America, delivered by BBC Mundo’s network of reporters.

BBC News features editor Carey Clark said, “Click’s weekly exploration of the new frontiers of technology and innovation already makes it one of the most watched and trusted technology programmes in the world. We are all delighted that our new Spanish-language editions will open up the show to many more viewers.”

BBC World Service head of business development Europe and Latin America Frederick Durman said, “We are excited to be extending the reach of one of the BBC’s established brands amongst Spanish-speaking audiences, offering our technology reporting – this time with a Latino accent.”

HITN is the first US Latino-controlled, non-commercial, Spanish-language media company, delivering educational programming to more than 36 million homes in the US on satellite and cable, focusing on health, financial literacy and education.

HITN director of programming Florentina Almonte added: “As part of our ongoing mission to promote and present educational content, we are proud to offer our viewers the Spanish-language version of Click, an innovative series that covers new developments in digital technology and platforms. In this digital age, it is more important than ever for the public to stay up to date with the latest technological breakthroughs and trends.”
