Terra TV Peru is also attracting thousands of unique viewers and is converting 10 percent of its portal visitors to TV viewers.

Terra, the internet arm of Telefonica, operates some of the most popular websites throughout the US, Spain and Latin America targeting Spanish and Portuguese speaking customers. Terra TV delivers content across a number of content categories including entertainment, music, local and worldwide news, business, and health.
