The Hispanic Information Telecommunications Network (HITN), founded in 1981, is the leading non-commercial, Spanish-language, public-service media company that offers educational and cultural programming for the whole family. We work to advance the educational, cultural, and socio-economic aspirations of U.S. Latinos through quality, authentic programming on-air, online, and in the communities we serve.
No other Hispanic-focused organization connects schools, homes, and community-based organizations with educational content and the connectivity and technology to access and utilize that content.
The channel is available on all major cable and satellite operators and by several telecommunication companies and digital platforms. Our channel reaches 35 million homes across the US. View our current sizzle reel here.
