“Food Network is joining a leading portfolio of factual, lifestyle and pre-school channels, which enables us to offer advertisers and affiliates the opportunity of reaching highly-demanded targets”, explained Fernando Medin, president and GM, Discovery Networks Latin America / US Hispanic.

“It’s also highly rewarding being able to deliver a more comprehensive programming to our audiences thanks to Scripps Networks Interactive content, which we can use through our pay-TV networks and non-linear platforms.”

Food Network’s programming, which strengthens Discovery’s lifestyle line-up, includes original Latin American content like Los Hermanos Rausch con Jorge y Mark Rausch, and Locos por el Asado.

The commercial move has been announced almost one year after Discovery had revealed its strategy to acquire Scripps in a $14.6 billion deal. The operation was formally closed by the beginning of 2018.
