Record TV CEO Marcus Vinicius Da Silva affirmed that countries like Portugal, Spain and England are interested in knowing everything related to sports in Latin America.
Record TV holds the rights to broadcast the Lima 2019 for its country, Brazil, and for 100 countries in the world.
It is the second largest TV station in Brazil, with a daily TV audience of 60 million people.
According to Marcus Vinicius Da Silva Viera, countries in Africa and Europe are interested in following the Lima 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games’ broadcast. He is Record TV CEO, which is the Brazilian organization holding the rights to broadcast the Games for its country and for other 100 countries in the world except for Peru.
He pointed out that his company has good audience in these countries. “Africa and Europe have also shown interest. It’s something new for us. We’re discussing a lot with countries like Portugal, Spain and England, who are interested in knowing everything related to sports in Latin America”, said the TV station executive. He also mentioned that Record TV is planning to broadcast the Games in Brazil and to be the main contact to broadcasters from Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay and countries from Central America.
“Apart from Record TV, we’re working on a structure with Record News, which will be broadcasting the Games entirely. Record TV will produce summaries,” detailed the TV station CEO. Record TV is the second largest TV station in Brazil, with a daily TV audience of 60 million people.
Regarding the guide TV Record plans to prepare, he stated that “if sports like football or baseball catch more attention of fans from certain countries, TV Record aims to broadcast less familiar sports.”
Da Silva Viera attended the World Broadcaster Meeting, organized by Lima 2019 and MEDIAPRO, which is in charge of producing the TV signal for the Pan American and Parapan American Games. The event gathered Peruvian and foreign Rights-holding Broadcasters for a presentation of the coverage proposal (Master Plan), production and operation of the Host Broadcaster for the Lima 2019 Games.
“We came by to check if everything is going on well and the presentation was good enough to me. We’re making everything possible to boost tourism in Peru through broadcast. We want to integrate our countries,” he emphasized.
Record TV obtained the broadcasting rights in Brazil since Guadalajara 2011 Pan American Games and got all licenses to broadcast in the whole world at the Toronto 2015 Games.
