I.Sat (contraction of the Spanish phrase Imagen satelital, which means "Satellite image") is an Argentine cable television channel owned by Turner Broadcasting System Latin America and Time Warner. It airs movies, series, music and shows focused on people aged 18 to 39. It is headquartered in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

It is broadcast on the satellite PAS 9 and is broadcast by most cable television companies in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

The channel has a dedicated feed for Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, and until November 2012, a dedicated feed for Brazil, which is now covered by the channel's pan-regional feed.

History[edit]

Until 2007, the channel was owned by "Claxson Interactive Group Latin America & Iberia" (which was a subsidiary of the Venezuelan-based Cisneros Group) but that year the channel, along with Retro and Space, is bought by Turner Broadcasting System. It aired different programming on different blocks, such as "Primer Plano I.Sat" (foreign movies), "Cine Argentino Independiente" (independent Argentine films), "Asian Connection" (Asian films), and "Cortos I-Sat" (short films).

In 2007 it changed its programming from being a 24-hour movies channel to have movies, series, shows, documentary series, music and some others. Some current programming includes Little Britain, Raising Hope, Misfits, and others.

The Cartoon Network's block Adult Swim aired every night with adult animation series; however, it was cancelled on 2011 due to low ratings.[1][2]
