MTV Tres

MTV Tres (taken from the Spanish word for the number three tres, stylized as tr3s) is an American pay television network owned by Viacom Global Entertainment Group, a division of the Viacom Media Networks subsidiary of Viacom. Programming on MTV Tres formerly included lifestyle series, customized music video playlists, news documentaries that celebrate Latino culture, music and artists and English-subtitled programming in Spanish, imported from the MTV España and MTV Latin America channels, as well as Spanish-subtitled programming from MTV.[1] Its current format under Viacom's current 'six prime networks strategy' is an automated 24/7 schedule of only music videos with slight customization depending on the hour. The channel is targeted toward bilingual Latinos and non-Latino Americans aged 12 to 34.[2] MTV Tres was headed by executive vice president and general manager Jose Tillan until his 2012 departure from Viacom.

As of August 2013, MTV Tres was available to approximately 36 million pay television households (totaling 32% of households with television) in the United States.[3]

History

MTV Español

On August 1, 1998, MTV Networks launched a 24-hour digital cable channel, MTV S (the "S" standing for "Spanish").[4] On October 1, 2001, the channel was relaunched as MTV Español,[5] focusing on music videos by Latin rock and pop artists.[6] The rebranded network mainly utilized the eight-hour automated music video playlist wheel used by sister networks MTV2, MTV Hits and MTVX (later MTV Jams) without any original programming, except for repurposed content from MTV's Latin America networks.

Acquisition of MásMúsica TeVe

Más Música TeVe, founded in 1998, was a network distributed in the United States on pay television that aired music videos from various Latin American music styles, including salsa, cumbia, regional Mexican, and contemporary Spanish-language hits. Founded by Eduardo Caballero of Caballero Television,[7] MásMúsica TeVe carried the minimum requirements of educational and public affairs programming on weekends, and it was carried mainly on low-power television stations throughout the United States.

In December 2005, Viacom acquired MásMúsica and ten of the network's affiliated stations. The sale was closed down in January 2006.[8]

Launch of MTV Tres

MTV Tres unofficially launched on September 4, 2006, when it became available on all subscription providers that previously carried MTV Español. On September 25, 2006, MTV Español and MásMúsica TeVe officially merged. The first program to air on the newly formed channel was the premiere of Mi TRL at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

In its beginnings, MTV Tres's programming schedule was significantly more repetitive than MTV Español was in its last days. The channel aired shows such as Hola, My Name is MTV Tres, the Top 20 Countdown, Los Hits, Mis #1s, Sucker Free Latino (only running two new shows per week), Latina Factor, Mi TRL, MTV Trespass, Los Premios MTV Latinoamérica 2006, Making the Video and Diary; the latter two and many other programs from MTV are merely subtitled into Spanish rather than carrying re-dubbed versions. These programs were repeated for most of the day, which greatly reduced the amount of freeform music videos played on the channel. As months passed, however, the programming became more varied and diverse, with changing music video blocks airing several times in the day.

Relaunch as Tres

On July 12, 2010, MTV Tres dropped the MTV name from its logo and name, officially rebranding as simply Tres.[9] With the rebrand, the network expanded its programming to include additional acquired MTV programs and series from Viacom's Latin American networks. Eventually, Viacom re-sold some of the stations acquired in the Más Música deal in California and Texas back to Caballero Television, and has drawn down the amount of broadcast stations carrying the network.

Programming

Tres broadcasts on an Eastern Time schedule and does not timeshift its programming for other U.S. time zones due to the lack of an additional feed for the Pacific Time Zone.

Music video programs

Since 2014, MTV Tres broadcasts music videos for at least 22 hours each day (though like their sister networks NickMusic and CMT Music, the titles of the 'programs' now merely delineate an hour for electronic program guides than provide any actual video theming). Music blocks that are airing and have aired on the station are as follows:

Current

  • Exitos- The latest chart topping hits from today's Latin artists
  • 2x1- Features two videos per artist
  • Fresh-Features the latest music videos
  • El Flow- Reggaeton, Urban Bachata and Latin Hip Hop Music Videos
  • La Hora Nacional- Features Indie Latin artists
  • Tropicalismo- Features Reggaeton, Bachata and Tropical pop music videos
  • ReMexa – features music videos of different Regional Mexican music genres including Banda, Ranchera, Duranguense and Norteña.
  • Clasicos- Classic music videos (though most are from after 2010 but before 2015)
  • Cafeina- Early morning music video mix

Former

  • Classic Co.[10] – The program, which aired weekdays at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time, featured a mix of videos from Latino artists of the 1980s and 1990s such as Selena, Ricky Martin, and Marc Anthony. The title is most likely an English-language play on the Spanish term for "classic", clásico, as the title might stand for "Classic Company". The program was discontinued in early 2008.
  • Los Hits[11] – Based on MTV's Big Ten and Más Música's Los Top 10, this program featured the most popular videos in rotation on MTV Tr3s. It was hosted by Carlos Santos or Denise Ramirez featuring interviews with popular artists, however the program would drop its VJ format in March 2007. The program was discontinued in mid-2007.
  • Tr3s or False – This program was a music video/text message-based game show that awarded viewers points, which could be redeemed for prizes, for answering questions correctly. The program was discontinued in early 2009.
  • Music My Guey – This program focuses on viewer requested music videos.
  • Top 20[11] – Similar to Las 40 Principales from Más Música, this program is a countdown of the top 20 videos in rotation on the channel during the week. In late June 2008, the network changed the show's format; most music videos are no longer played in their entirety; the show has been hosted since that point by Carlos Santos.
  • TXTO (pronounced "texto", Spanish for "text")[12] – This program is a block of music videos requested by callers who send text messages to the channel, in English or Spanish, dedicating videos to friends or family. Although it is loosely based on Tu Email from Más Música, TXTO does not feature a VJ who reads the e-mails. However, there may be occasional VJ spots in the program. TXTO URB is a spinoff series that is dedicated to urban music videos.[13]
  • ¡Rock! – This program aired mostly during the late night hours, and featured a mix of rock music videos from American and Latin-American bands. Among the American bands featured in the lineup were the Deftones, which contain Latino vocalist Chino Moreno and turntablist Frank Delgado, and Incubus, which contain Latino drummer Jose Pasillas. The program was discontinued in October 2007.
  • MixMex[14] – A music video program featuring artists from Mexico; it was replaced with ReMexa in March 2009.
  • Street Mix (later known as El Sonidero) – A block of urban music videos, focusing on hip-hop, reggaeton and R&B artists, and includes Spanish-speaking artists with occasional American videos from non-Latino, English-speaking artists.[15](was called EL Sonidero until September 2008)
  • Videoteca (formally known as V.P.M., short for Video Party Music[16]) – This program focused on rhythmic videos; Videoteca was cancelled on July 12, 2010, concurrent with the network's relaunch.
  • Videorama - General music video mix that aired during the daytime hours
  • Videosomnia - General music video mix that aired during the overnight hours (Similar to MTV After Hours)

The following music video programs were hosted by VJ's who primarily host in English:

  • Sucker Free Latino – Hosted by L. Boogs; this program is similar to Más Música's Zona Urbana and is based on MTV's Sucker Free, featuring popular hip-hop, R&B and reggaeton music videos, mostly from Latino artists; however, some of the featured videos may be performed by American artists like The Fugees or Ludacris, with interviews included (replaced with SFL5)
  • Mi TRL – Based on MTV's Total Request Live and Más Música's Pidelo, and hosted by Carlos Santos, new episodes air each Thursday at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time (with rebroadcasts throughout the week on Tr3s as well as rebroadcasts on MTV Hits); the program featured the ten most requested videos based on voting on the MTV Tr3s website, featuring live performances and interviews (discontinued along with TRL in November 2008, then revived in February 2009 as Entertainment as a Second Language)
  • Indie 101 – Hosted by Martin Chan, this program – which is similar in format to Más Música's Rokmania – focuses on indie rock bands from Latin America.

Non-music programming

Some reality and scripted series formerly aired on the channel, which are acquired from the flagship U.S. MTV channel (and subtitled in Spanish) as well as from MTV Latin America and Nickelodeon Latin America (which are natively broadcast in Spanish and subtitled in English for broadcast on American television). These types of programs aired for no more than three hours at a time, thus allowing more music videos to be played during the day. Some of the programs had little or nothing to do with Latino culture and possibly only aired on Tres to allow Viacom to maintain syndication rights to the programs without threatening ratings on higher-profile networks.

Tres introduced "Tres Jr.", a Spanish-language version of the Nick Jr. block, in July 2010, featuring Spanish-language dubs of Nick Jr.'s Blue's Clues (branded as Pistas de Blue and only including the episodes hosted by Steve Burns) and Wonder Pets. The block was discontinued in October 2010.

Class A affiliates (and previously, former full-power affiliate KBEH-TV) aired archived Nick Jr. series Allegra's Window and Gullah Gullah Island in order to fulfill E/I programming requirements set by the Federal Communications Commission.

Since 2014 Tres has removed almost all of their non-music programming and broadcasts music videos for at least 22 hours each day.

Current programming

  • Quiero Mi Boda
  • Quiero Mis Quinces – a version of My Super Sweet 16, with the exception of the celebration being held at age 15; episodes focus on elaborate quinceañera ceremonies, the norm in most Latin-American countries
  • Ninas Mal

Former programming

Free-to-air affiliates

KVMM-CD, channel 41 of Santa Barbara, California is the only MTV Tres affiliate that still broadcasts free-to-air as of April 2019, as well as the only free-the-air broadcast asset Viacom has remaining.

Most of the broadcast stations that aired MTV Tres served communities with large Hispanic populations. Upon the merger of Más Música and MTV Tres, however, former Más Música affiliate WZXZ-CA in Orlando, Florida switched to MTV2, before affiliating with America TéVé, and WUBX-CA and WBXU-LP in the Raleigh/Durham/Fayetteville, North Carolina market ceased operations completely. Eventually Viacom let their affiliation agreements lapse with their broadcast affiliates, and those other stations have become affiliates of other networks, or ceased all operations. Viacom's carriage agreements with cable providers also often saw the Tres cable channel preferred for carriage over a local affiliate, and most stations were unable to find cable coverage with Tres programming, notwithstanding existing complications involving low-power stations and cable carriage.

In 2012, she won a nationwide contest by MTV Très and was chosen by Columbian singer Juanes to sing a duet with him for inclusion on the Deluxe Edition of his album Juanes MTV Unplugged.

It also won two Latin Grammys: Album of The Year and Best Long Form Music Video. The video of their performance counts over a million and a half views on YouTube. As a result of these achievements, Bellezza's song titled Ella Se Va was played in different main radios in Venezuela and reached the top 40 national music charts in the same country.

Guajiro (band)

Güajiro (pronounced, ‘Wha-hee-roh’) are a Hialeah, Florida-based rock band, composed of members Jorge Gonzalez Graupera (bass, backing vocals), William Lopez (guitar, lead vocals), Douglas Mackinnon (drums, percussion) and David Santos (guitar). They are signed to I Scream Records. They were the US representatives of the RALLY MTV reality TV series which aired on MTV Tres as well as MTV Latin America and MTV Brazil.

KCBU

KCBU was a television station in Price, Utah, broadcast locally in analog on channel 3 under the ownership of Equity Media Holdings. Until January 4, 2009, KCBU was an affiliate of the Retro Television Network (RTV).

The station had a construction permit to increase the power of the digital signal to 40,000 watts and was to have moved its transmitter to a peak south of Springville, Utah. This would have effectively given the station signal reach into the Salt Lake City market it was a part of. When the construction permit was approved, KCBU was to broadcast on digital channel 11.

The station's license was applied in 2003; the station was planned to become an affiliate of Más Música (now known as MTV Tres). However, this never materialized, and instead on October 24, 2003, the station signed on as KUTF, Utah's original TeleFutura affiliate, as a Spanish-language television station; up until this point, the network was previously unavailable in the market.

The station breifly changed its call sign to KCBU on March 31, 2005; however, the station remained a TeleFutura affiliate, and the station’s call sign was changed back to KUTF shortly after on April 29. On July 8, 2005, the station dropped the TeleFutura affiliation to become an affiliate of the Retro Television Network, and the station’s call sign was officially changed to KCBU that day.

On January 4, 2009, a contract conflict between Equity Media Holdings Corporation and RTV interrupted the programming on many RTV affiliates. As a result, Luken moved RTV operations to its headquarters in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and dropped all Equity-owned affiliates, including KCBU. RTV remained available in Utah on KUSG in St. George until later in 2009, when that station switched to This TV; RTV has since affiliated with KCSG.

KCBU was sold at auction to the Daystar Television Network on April 16, 2009, indicating another programming change. The station ceased analog operations on June 12, 2009, and never completed its digital facilities under Daystar, resulting in the cancellation of its license on July 6, 2010. Daystar concentrated on getting KUTF (channel 12) in Logan back on the air rather than KCBU.

List of Spanish-language television networks in the United States

The following is a list of Spanish-language television networks in the United States. As of 2016 the largest Hispanic/Latino television audiences in the U.S. are in California (Los Angeles, San Francisco area), New York, Florida (Miami area), Texas (Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio), Illinois (Chicago), and Arizona (Phoenix).

List of people influenced by Selena

Selena (April 16, 1971 – March 31, 1995) was an American Tejano singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress and fashion designer. She was born in Lake Jackson, Texas, 54 miles south of Houston, and her family moved to Corpus Christi after declaring bankruptcy. Her father, a musician before her birth, formed his children into Selena y Los Dinos (with A.B. Quintanilla on bass, Suzette Quintanilla on drums and Selena singing) when he discovered her musical talent. Selena received the Tejano Music Award for Female Vocalist of the Year for nine consecutive years, beginning in 1987. She signed her first major contract with EMI Latin in 1989, releasing four Spanish-language albums which were milestones in the Latin music industry. EMI Latin then wanted her to release a crossover album, transitioning from Spanish- to English-language pop songs. On March 31, 1995, Selena was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar, her friend and the former manager of her boutiques. Reaction to her death was compared to the grief following the deaths of musicians John Lennon and Elvis Presley and U.S. president John F. Kennedy.Selena's greatest influences were Donna Summer, Madonna, Gloria Estefan, Paula Abdul, Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson. According to music critics her Tejano sound incorporated contemporary R&B, disco and funk, and her roots in American pop music were believed by Ed Morales to have been inspired by Summer and Diana Ross. Selena credited Michael Jackson for inspiring her to follow in his footsteps after she saw him perform at a 1984 Astrodome concert. Onstage, she wore fashions inspired by Abdul, Madonna and Janet Jackson. Selena's husband, Chris Pérez, said that she was "open-minded" toward all musical genres, rock in particular. Since her death in 1995, entertainers have cited the singer's influence on their careers in interviews, speeches, books and music.
