Galavision wins with U-20 World Cup coverage
August 24th, 2011 12:30AM



[TELEVISION WATCH] The interest in Mexico's youth teams was evident in the 1.7 million viewers who watched the Mexico-Brazil semifinals from the Under-20 World Cup in Colombia on Galavision, making it the second most-watched Spanish-language cable telecast in history.

The game, won by eventual champion Brazil, 2-0, on two late goals, ranks as the fourth highest watched sports telecast in August so far among all cable networks, regardless of language, among Adults 18-34 and fifth highest watched of the month so far with Adults 18-49.
