Say hola to MundoFox, a new News Corp. endeavor launching this fall as Rupert Murdoch's first Fox-flavored foray into a Spanish-language broadcast network.

Univision and Comcast's Telemundo currently top the Spanish-language market, and MundoFox hopes to hook Hispanic audiences by partnering with Colombia-based RCN Television Group, the organization announced Monday. RCN already produces popular programs like "El Capo" and "Yo soy Betty la Fea." 

Available to anyone with a digital antenna, the launch of the broadcast network would see MundoFox carried on stations in 75 percent of U.S. households.

Pending affiliate deals with top Hispanic markets are awaiting finalization, reports the AP.
