V-me (pronounced veh-meh, Spanish for “see me") is the fastest-growing and fourth-largest Hispanic TV network in the US. The 24-hour digital broadcast service was launched on March 5, 2007, and is currently available in over 70% of all Hispanic homes. It is the first venture of the media production and distribution company, V-me Media Inc. It is a public-private partnership forged between the Educational Broadcasting Corporation (the parent of the New York public station and PBS flagship WNET), the investment firm the Baeza Group, and the venture capital firm Syncom Funds. Educational Broadcasting is a minority partner in the for-profit venture.[1][2][3]

In nearly 40 US markets, V-me is available free over the air, and on basic cable, thanks to its partnership with PBS member stations. V-me is also carried nationally via satellite in the basic and Hispanic packages of Dish Network and DirecTV. In some areas, V-me is available on Verizon FiOS, AT&T U-verse, and Cox Communications.
