NBC Drops Canal De Noticias
  NEW YORK, New York, USA, 97/01/28 (SatND) -- In a move to streamline its
international channel line-up, NBC will abandon its Latin American service
Canal de Noticias in favour of CNBC and MSNBC. "Canal de Noticias was
founded on a great idea and it opened the door for NBC's launch into Latin
America," the Hollywood Reporter quoted CNBC president Bill Bolster.

  "Now we have MSNBC, and that changes the whole game." NBC will extend the
cable distribution of CNBC and MSNBC in co-operation with local partners
