The channel launches in Spanish in HD for subscribers across Cablevision Argentina, Cablevision Mexico and Sky Mexico this month. A Portuguese-language version of MGM HD launched in Brazil last year. The channel boasts a library of more than 4,100 film titles, along with a variety of original productions, recent releases and exclusive special events such as American Film Institute: Life Achievement Award, World Music Awards and its latest production MMA on MGM: Battle of the Americas in high definition.

“MGM Channels continue to expand and thrive across the global multichannel marketplace,” said Bruce Tuchman, the president of MGM Worldwide Networks. “High definition has become a particularly hot area of growth for us as this new HD launch follows our recent launch of MGM HD in the U.K., and the slew of vibrant MGM HD channels that we have launched in rapid succession over the last few years in the U.S., Europe and the Mid-East.”

Melvin Perez, the president of MGM Networks Latin America, added: “The MGM HD channel arrived in Brazil in May 2009 and our strategy remains to offer a channel with programming that is separate from our standard signal, presenting different genres of films without commercial interruptions and without traditional advertising. With the strengthening of our portfolio in the region, MGM Networks Latin America strengthens its market position by taking leadership in launching new trends and presenting the first truly basic movie channel in high definition.”
