TV and Cable Stations in Puerto Rico
While Television has not been developed in Puerto Rico for as long as it has been in other areas of the Caribbean, it has certainly made up for lost time. As a territory of the US, Puerto Rico’s communication industry is under the control of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Over a relatively short period of time, this has allowed the country to develop a mega Puerto Rico TV network that now covers the entire country.
Television broadcasts in Puerto Rico are mainly in English and Spanish though there are a few that are broadcast in French. Currently the widespread Television Network has roughly fifty channels from which the average citizen can pick and choose depending on which part of the country they are in. There are four main broadcasting regions – Northern Puerto Rico which is broadcast mainly from Arecibo, Western Puerto Rico which is centered in Mayaguez, Southern Puerto Rico which is focused in Ponce and Eastern Puerto Rico which is of course based in San Juan. Channel Seven is a national channel and is received country wide. Below you will find a basic schedule of the various Channels available in Puerto Rico as well as the city or town in which they are based. We hope that this will give you a better idea of what to expect when you visit this stunning country.
