NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fusion Media Group (FMG) today announced plans for international expansion into Latin America through a new multi-platform agreement, spanning digital and television, with Grupo Televisa S.A.B. Televisa, the leading media company in the Spanish-speaking world, has acquired a license to the brands and content from FMG's collection of digital publications for Mexico and will launch a new FUSION branded 24-hour cable network in Spanish.

FUSION MX will be operated by Televisa and feature locally-produced Spanish-language programming for a young Mexican audience as well as local versions of shows originally developed for FUSION in the U.S. The agreement will see FUSION MX distributed across several national providers reaching nearly 14 million Mexican households and the potential for additional distribution across Latin America.

In addition, Grupo Televisa will also acquire the rights to launch Mexican editions and publish content from Gizmodo Media's category-leading sites, which include Deadspin (sports), Gizmodo (technology), Jalopnik (car culture), Jezebel (women's interest), Kotaku (gaming), Earther and Project Earth (environment), and TrackRecord (music), among others.
