Bilingual entertainment cable channel mun2 will grow its reach from 17 million to 24 million subscribers next month through a long-term carriage agreement with Comcast.

Comcast will begin carrying mun2 on its most widely-available tier of digital cable service, in to-be-announced markets where the channel was previously unavailable.

A spokeswoman for mun2 parent company NBC Universal says mun2 will be available to Comcast subscribers in both a regular channel lineup as well as on demand.

The Comcast deal also includes increased carriage for No. 2 Spanish-language broadcaster Telemundo to enter Seattle and Detroit, markets where it has never been broadcast.

mun2 competitor MTV Tr3s claims carriage in 6.2 million Hispanic homes and 31.9 million total homes, largely through free over-the-air affiliates.
