CNN en Español provides live coverage of some news events, and since 2016, has carried the Spanish-language audio (though the video remains the regular English presentation) for Major League Baseball postseason games carried by sister network TBS only in the United States.[4] CNN en Español features newscasts throughout the day.

Mexico programmingEdit

In March 1999, CNN en Español launched an independent feed for Mexico. This exclusive signal of CNN en Español airs Perspectivas, a primetime newscast dedicated to covering important local, domestic and international events of special significance to Mexican viewers. CNN en Español’s Mexico feed also features InfoCinta CNN, an electronic ticker located at the bottom of the screen containing news headlines, sports, financial and weather information.[5]
