What is V-me?
V-me is the first national Spanish-language television network to partner with American public television, launching across Utah October 23 in partnership with KUED and the University of Utah. V-me brings the best in quality entertainment to Latino families. The name comes from the Spanish veme, meaning "see me." In addition to providing high-quality programming, V-me represents a new way for U.S. Hispanics to celebrate achievement, explore interests and issues shared with all Americans, and connect to diverse Latino communities across the country.
What kind of programs are on V-me?

Why was V-me created?
Hispanics play an ever-increasing role in American society. Research shows that Latinos from all walks of life, and all across the U.S., seek something more from television – the quality and intelligent programming that is a form of respect. At the same time, public broadcasters presenting V-me are able to expand and fulfill their mission to educate, engage and entertain their communities to the broadest extent.
Who does V-me target?
V-me is for the more than 30 million bilingual and Spanish-speaking Americans and anyone else who is interested in the American Latino experience. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 18 percent of the Salt Lake City Metro population is of Latino origin.
Why is V-me programming in Spanish?
Numerous studies support that Spanish and English speakers alike want to help develop and promote bilingualism among their children. V-me believes that the ability to speak two languages represents an ever more important global advantage, and the network offers a safe, non-commercial environment where this can happen.
What is V-me's relationship with public television stations?
V-me provides a national core service at no cost to its partner stations like KUED. In addition to local marketing and outreach, stations can customize certain segments of the service with select local content that reflects the distinctive regional aspects of the U.S. Hispanic population.
