Barrio 305 Launches a Broadband Reggeaton Video Channel

Barrio 305 is proud to announce the launch of a Broadband Reggaeton Video channel that focuses on Urban Latino lifestyles and reggaeton music.

/24-7PressRelease/ - MIAMI, FL, September 23, 2005 - With its eyes set on the future, Barrio 305 stands at the vanguard of two emerging trends: broadband video and the exploding musical genre of reggaeton.

The producers have already obtained exclusive interviews with all the major hitters in the reggaeton and Urban Latino music scene. Hip hop mogul Fat Joe, MTV sensation Pitbull, reggaeton superstar Nicky Jam and urban legend Tony Touch are some of the big names that have participated in making Barrio 305 the sole authority when it comes to coverage of reggaeton and Urban Latino music.

Barrio 305's high editorial standards have quickly made it a favorite among artists, fans and music industry executives. Upon consideration, Barrio 305 will lend its services for syndication and editorial contributions to other media outlets that are interested in covering the reggaeton/ Latino hip-hop music scene.

The programming streams compact video segments designed for broadband that reflect the lifestyles and musical tastes of the 14-34 U.S. bi-cultural Latino demographic. Coverage includes the latest music videos, backstage concert footage, music reviews, street culture, exotic models / dancers and aftermarket import auto shows.

A Miami based outfit, Barrio 305 has the advantage of developing content for the Latino market in the trend setting hub for Latinos living in the U.S.. After all, Miami has often been referred to as the capital of Latin America and remains the hotspot for Latino styles.

Unlike traditional TV, which must cater to a general community, a broadband channel creates the opportunity to enjoy reggaeton / Urban Latino programming where it otherwise would not be available.

The name Barrio 305 is a Spanglish term that describes the emerging Latino youth culture in the U.S.. Barrio is Spanish for neighborhood and 305 is the area code for the city of Miami; the name captures the bi-cultural nature of English dominant Latinos living in urban areas through out the U.S.. With Latinos representing the fastest growing portion of the population, Barrio 305 hopes to expand reggaeton's audience outside the major U.S. cities.
