Television has been in existence in Mexico for a long time. In 1997 Mexicans receiving transmissions from over 236 broadcasting stations owned over 30 million televisions. In 2002, Grupo Televisa became the largest Spanish speaking conglomerate worldwide.
This conglomerate started with the radio under the leadership of Emillio Azcarraga, and then it expanded into the world of TV in the 70’s. A few years later, it became a world renowned corporation. In 2000, Televisa became Mexico’s largest TV network with over 300 stations under its control. In fact, close to 60 percent of what the corporation earns in revenues comes from the television side. In fact, the success of the Spanish soap opera which are exported is a very lucrative part of the business. These telenovelas have become very popular around the world.
When the Spanish speaking population expanded in the US, the US provided a substantive market for Grupo Televisa products. Its television broadcasting segment includes sections on the production of national broadcasting and TV programming for different channels as well as local programs for the US and Mexican consumers.
