The media industry in Mexico is changing, and the Grupo Televisa is at the center of it all. Grupo Televisa, founded in 1955, was launched to offer quality entertainment to the Hispanic Community.
Grupo Televisa was established under the name Telesistema Mexicano. For a long time, the Network dominated the industry. Their dominance was however challenged in 1968 when the Television Independiente de Mexico was launched. The two networks competed in different areas including content production. The Networks later merged in 1973 and formed Televisa.
Televisa is the leading Media Company in Mexico and most of the Spanish-Speaking countries. The network operates four television channels in Mexico. It also produces 26-pay TV programs. The Network has formed a partnership with Univision Communications. The partnership has provided the Network with the opportunity to export their programs to the United States.
Televisa owns a majority share in Sky. The Sky Company is the leading Satellite television that offers the direct-to-home production. Sky operates in Mexico, Central American, and the Dominican Republic. Apart from the television production, Televisa is also involved in the publishing and distribution of magazines, games and the sweepstakes.
The Network has partnered with the Televisa Networks that is responsible for the distribution of the television programs via the satellite.
