Telesur TV Live

Telesur (stylized as teleSUR) is a Latin American terrestrial and satellite news television network headquartered in Caracas, Venezuela and sponsored by the governments of Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua.

First proposed in 2005 and subsidized by Venezuela, Telesur was launched under the government of Hugo Chávez, and promoted as “a Latin socialist answer to CNN”. It has been described as a network showcasing the diversity of Latin America and a propaganda outlet for state views under chavismo.

In Latin America, teleSUR can be seen in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and other territories as Aruba, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Curaçao in DirecTV’s package (channels 292 and 722). In 2020, Uruguay removed its sponsorship.
