ATLANTA, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Grupo Bandeirantes de Comunicação announced an initiative with SLING TV to provide Bandnews to the Brazilian Consulate in Los Angeles visitors to watch real-time Brazilian news while waiting for their appointment.

"We are extremely pleased to have both SLING TV and Bandnews contributing to our goal to serve, educate, promote and encourage the interaction and dialogue amongst visitors to maintain the connection and cultural identity to Brazil," commented Bruno Bath, Consul General of Brazil in Los Angeles. "We are confident it will have a positive impact on visitors."

Fitted with a 55" flat screen TV and state of the art equipment, the waiting room at the location will tune daily to Bandnews, the only 24-hour Portuguese language and Brazilian news channel in the USA, enhancing the consulate visitors' experience while keeping guests informed of the latest news.

"Our ultimate goal is to provide a reliable, up-to-the minute news source for Brazilians around the world. With this effort, we will expand on that commitment and contribute to the consulate's service to the Brazilian community in the Los Angeles area," explained Silvia Saad Jafet, General Director Pay TV and International Distribution from Grupo Bandeirantes de Comunicação.

The Consulate General of Brazil in Los Angeles is the second participating location providing the service, following the Brazilian Consulate in Atlanta. Additional consulates and other community organizations serving the Brazilian population in the USA are currently under consideration to be included as part of the program.
