“We are happy that Chivas, as one of the most popular teams in Mexico, increased its reach benefiting the audience and football fans by choosing Televisa Networks as strategically,” said the broadcaster in a release. “TDN, Las Estrellas and blim continue at the forefront, strengthening as entertainment platforms for millions of homes in Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean.”
