¿Qué es Vme? / What’s Vme?

Hace un año Estados Unidos cambió la transmisión de televisión de análoga a alta definición (HD).  Nosotros no tenemos televisión por cable en casa (estoy segura que esto lo he mencionado en varias ocasiones:)  )  así que compramos un convertidor y pronto empezamos a disfrutar de televisión de alta definición gratis!.  Una de las primeras cosas que noté, además del cambio en la numeración, fueron un par de canales que no había visto antes. Uno de ellos inmediatamente se convirtió en favorito, y este es  Vme.  ¿Has escuchado de Vme?  ¿lo has visto?

Vme es parte de la familia de PBS (televisión pública), es un canal que ofrece programas de muy alta calidad y en español.  De Comida a Música, de Niños a Tecnología, Vme tiene algo para cada miembro de tu familia.  Nosotros estamos encantados con la barra educacional para niños, a mis hijos les gusta Jim de la Luna, Peep, y Super Números, entre otros, y yo estoy felíz porque ellos ven muy buenos programas en español.  A mi me encanta la barra de cocina como  pasteleria.mex y mi esposo no pierde la oportunidad de sentarse junto a mi y ver Estudio Billboard, un estupendo programa que presenta artistas latinos de renombre, quienes actúan y platican de sus vidas en un ambiente muy relajado.

¿Y porque te estoy contando todo esto? bueno, primero porque es una oportunidad para mi compartirles sobre programación que vale la pena ver, sobre todo a ustedes que no han escuchado sobre Vme, y segundo porque Vme es la primera empresa en los Estados Unidos que ha patrocinado a un gran grupo de latinas, siete en total – Melanie ModernMami, Carrie TikiTikiBlog, Ana and Roxana SpanglishBaby, Rory MamáContemporánea y yo!– para asistir a la conferencia mas importante para mujeres con blogs, BlogHer.  BlogHer, tristemente ya pasó (después les contaré un poco mas), sin embargo fue una enorme experiencia para mi, y gracias a Vme, tuve la oportunidad de aprender de otras blogueras y hacer importantes conexiones.  Todo esto, espero, beneficiará a cada uno de ustedes, mis leales lectores, en las semanas y meses futuros.

Cuando estábamos en NY para asistir a la conferencia, Vme nos invitó a un lunch al cual llamaron “Vme Contigo en Tu Blog,” donde tuve el placer de platicar con algunas de las personas detrás de Vme, como Carmen DiRienzo, Presidente y CEO, Guillermo Sierra, Vice Presidente y Jefe de Contenido y Doris Vogelmann, Directora de Programación.  Todas las que participamos escuchamos sobre los programas que muy pronto veras en tu televisión.  Poco a poco te iré trayendo esta información y espero que veas Vme, si es que no lo has hecho ya, estoy segura que te gustará tanto como a nosotros.

Gracias otra vez  Vme por estar un paso adelante y valorar el trabajo que nosotras las blogueras hacemos día a día.  Me siento honrada de ser parte de este fabuloso grupo.

A year ago the USA switched from analog tv to high definition tv.  I don’t have cable at home (I’m sure I’ve said that multiple times 🙂 )  so we bought a converter and we soon started enjoying HDTV for free in our home.  One of the first things I noticed, besides the new channel numbers, were a couple of channels I’d never seen before.  One of them soon became a favorite, Vme.  Have you heard of Vme?  Have you seen it?

Vme is part of the PBS family, an all Spanish channel offering a variety of high quality programming.  From Food to Music, from Children to Travel, you can find something for every person in your family.  We fell in love with the educational shows for kids, my sons love Jim de la Luna (Lunar Jim), Peep, Super Numeros (Number Jacks), among others, and I’m happy because they get to watch great programming in Spanish!!  I love the cooking shows like pasteleria.mex and my husband joins me when I watch Estudio Billboard, a wonderful program featuring top latin artists who perform and talk about their lives in a very cozy and relaxed environment.

And why am I telling you all this?  Well, first because some of you may not have heard about Vme and I like to share when I find something worth seeing, and second, because Vme is the first company in the USA to sponsor a large group of 7 latinas- Melanie ModernMami, Carol NYCityMama, Carrie TikiTikiBlog, Ana and Roxana SpanglishBaby, Rory MamáContemporánea and me!– in attending the most important conference for women who blog in the USA, BlogHer.  BlogHer (more about this later), sadly, is over, however it was a wonderful experience for me, and thanks to Vme I had the opportunity to learn from other bloggers and make important connections.  All this I hope will benefit all of you, my loyal readers, in the weeks and months to come.

When we were in NY for the conference, Vme invited us to “Vme Contigo en Tu Blog,” a lunch where we had the pleasure of speaking with the people behind Vme, like Carmen DiRienzo, President and CEO, Guillermo Sierra, Senior Vice President and Chief Content Officer, and Doris Vogelmann, Director of Programming.  We heard about great programs coming soon and connected with other latina bloggers.  Little by little, I will be sharing with you this information and I hope you give Vme a try if you haven’t already, I’m sure you will love it as much as we do.

Thanks Vme again for being one step ahead and for valuing the work we bloggers do, I’m honored to have been a part of this group.

Here’s how to connect with V-me!

A nosotros tambien nos gusta Vme mucho. Es uno de los canales que les puedo enseñare a mis nenes sin tener que preocuparme que las conductoras van a treaer las pechonalidades casi casi afuera. Enserio! That just upsets me and I’m pretty sure you know what network I am talking about. Anyway, great post.

Great detailed post about Vme and all they have to offer. It was a pleasure to represent them at BlogHer and I was glad to learn even more about what they offer and their plans for future programming.

It was such a great pleasure to meet you at Blogher. I enjoyed hearing you speak at the panel for Latinas in Social Media. Even more I enjoyed the conversation we had at the reception later at night. I think before the panel I never even thought of blogging in Spanish. It’s is now something I would like to do in the future. I actually think I want to co-post with my mom (she has to help me with my writing) but I think it would be a fun collaboration. I’ll ask her when she comes back from vaction.

I just liked Vme on Facebook and I am going to check them out here in NYC. I found the local channel and I think my parents do watch their programming.

Great post, Silvia!

I, too, am very honored to have been part of the Vme Team for BlogHer. I can honestly say I am a fan since we’ve been watching it in my house for almost 2 years now. (they’ve only been around for 4-5 years)
We constantly promote it as the best viewing resource for children who speak Spanish or are learning it.


It is a great pleasure to call you my Amiga. It was simply amazing to be in the same room with such talented, strong, gorgeous latina bloggers.

It was SO much fun spending time with you in NY.

Para la otra amiga!
