   In-Culture Content Remains Strong, Including Spanish-Language Programming Many marketers mistake Hispanic marketing for Spanish-language marketing, despite the vast majority of Hispanics under 50 being bilingual and not Spanish-reliant. Today, Spanish continues to be a powerful connector to culture, with eight in 10 Hispanics ages 13 to 49 watching Spanish-language TV on traditional channels, like Telemundo and Univision. While 94% of Hispanic teens were born in the U.S., a staggering 75% of them watch SVOD content originally in Spanish, compared to 83% of Hispanic parents ages 25 to 49—71% prefer the original Spanish while 29% opt for English dubbing/ sub-titles.
