Syfy is a Latin American channel dedicated to science fiction and fantasy programming, owned by Universal Networks International, a division of NBCUniversal. The local version of the channel, available both in Spanish- and Portuguese-language feeds (for Spanish-speaking countries and for Brazil, respectively), was launched in 2007. Until October 10, 2010,[1] Syfy was known as Sci Fi.

The Brazilian feed of the channel, as well as its sister network, Studio Universal, is operated since mid-July 2012 by the joint venture between Universal Networks International and Grupo Globo-owned Globosat which already operated the Brazilian version of Universal Channel.[2]
