Spanish language cable TV channel Spectrum Deportes will no longer be available for the Los Angeles metro area, according to a Los Angeles Times report. Spectrum Deportes was an experiment for the company, the first 24-hour all Spanish language regional sports network, airing Los Angeles Lakers and LA Galaxy games among other programming.
More from the LA Times:
“As with any network, we are constantly evaluating our programming to provide our viewers with content they want to see,” Charter said Monday night in a statement. “While we never expected Lakers and Galaxy games to have equal viewership on Spectrum SportsNet and Spectrum Deportes, the [Spanish-language] network averaged less than a few thousand viewers per season since its launch.”
The channel will cease operations Aug. 15.
Spectrum SportsNet, the exclusive English-language home for the popular Los Angeles Lakers and Spectrum Deportes’s sister channel, will continue airing. Other regional sports networks for the area include Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket, which offer coverage of all the other teams in the area based in both Los Angeles and Anaheim.
