By 2019 it more than doubled its coverage and is available in over 4.2 million homes.[1] In order to make the network available to everyone in the United States, the network launched an app on September 16, 2019, coinciding with Mexican Independence Day.[3]

Nuestra Visión's programming consists of Mexican movie libraries, composed of over 2,300 movie titles, spanning from the Golden Age of Mexican cinema to recent productions.[1] Nuestra Vision also features sports programming, including live games from Ascenso MX and Liga MX Femenil, as well as American football, boxing, CMLL wrestling, baseball, and mixed martial arts.[4][5] The network also features sports news and content, and news produced live from Mexico by Claro Sports and UNO TV respectively.
