Exclusive: HBO Latin America and the IFL reach agreement

FiveOuncesOfPain.com (www.FiveOuncesOfPain.com) has learned that HBO and the IFL could announce an agreement as early as today that the IFL will begin airing on HBO Latin America in 2008.

The deal will make IFL programming available in Latin America, Brazil, and the Caribbean.

The anticipated announcement is very interesting because while HBO is only committed to televising the IFL on its Latin American channel, they still elected to go with IFL programming as opposed to other options that were available to them. One would think that if HBO decides to televise MMA on its English-language channels that the IFL has a bit of an edge.

    I am sure this is a fairly one sided deal. IFL is in a “take what you can get” situation.

    Is this also going to be on the channel that is available in the United States known as “HBO Latino”?
