  NEW YORK, New York, USA, 97/02/10 (TS) -- Fox Television has launched its
children's TV network, Fox Kids Network, in Latin America. Fox Kids Network
Worldwide has joined Canal Fox on PanAmSat's PAS-3 Atlantic Ocean Region

  The new PAS-3 service consists of one digital channel on the satellite's
C-band Pan-American beam, which covers virtually all of Latin America and
the Caribbean. The Fox Kids signal is being transmitted to PAS-3 from
PanAmSat's Global Operations Center in Atlanta, Ga.  The channel joins a
PAS-3 programmer lineup that includes, along with Canal Fox, the BBC, CCTV,
Discovery, ESPN, HBO, Viacom and The Weather Channel.

  "With its PAS-3 service, Fox Kids joins its sister channel in being able

David P. Berman, PanAmSat's senior vice president, broadcast sales.  "Fox
Kids is a terrific addition to the PAS-3 lineup, further enhancing the
diversity of quality television programming on the satellite."

programming offered in Spanish, English and Portuguese.
