Comcast adds Telefutura HD and Univision HD in Washington DC

Comcast has added Telefutura HD and Univision HD to their high-definition channel lineup in Washington D.C. markets. The additions arrive in anticipation of the upcoming FIFA World Cup matches from South Africa. Comcast will broadcast all 64 matches of the tournament (25 in 3D) in spanish language from June 11 through July 11, 2010.

Univision (WFDC) HD is available on Comcast Limited Basic channel 794 and Telefutura (WMDO) HD is available on Comcast Limited Basic channel 795.

“We are pleased to be working with Comcast to offer the first Spanish-language HD networks available to its customers in Washington, D.C., just in time for the World Cup,” said Entravision General Manager of Univision and Telefutura Rudy Guernica.

“With the addition of HD Hispanic networks to our lineup, we continue to provide our customers with the information and entertainment that matters most to them,” said Fred Graffam, regional senior vice president for Comcast.

Last month Comcast added spanish-language channels to areas in San Francisco and Central California.

Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC) owns and operates Telefutura (WMDO) and manages the marketing and sales operations of Univision (WFDC) under a marketing and sales arrangement with Univision Communications Inc.

Comcast offers Washington, D.C. area customers a Cable Latino package, which includes a selection of at least 25 Hispanic channels including Canal Sur TV, CNN Espanol, Discovery Espanol, and Galavision.
