Cox Communications is honoring Hispanic Heritage Month by offering culturally relevant programming through VOD and on the Music Choice network, as well as launching a new Spanish-language page on its Internet safety site.

During Hispanic Heritage Month, which started on Friday and runs through Oct. 15, Cox will offer its Cox Advanced TV customers free access to a variety of programming, including selections that focus on cultural awards, health and historical documentaries, feature films, and other video choices.

Starting today, Music Choice On Demand will feature a new special, “The Crossover,” which includes artist interviews and a panel of the music industry personalities. Music Choice will also feature original content and customized playlists from Latino artists through Oct. 14.

A new Spanish-language page for the company's Take Charge! initiative is now available. Cox said Take Charge! was designed to empower parents and caregivers to manage their kids' access to mass media content. The new Spanish-language page includes Cox's top 10 tips to help parents keep their children safer online, along with tools and videos to help parents talk to their kids about the importance of Internet safety.

Common Sense Media, which partners with Cox on its Take Charge! campaign, recently announced a new effort to provide information and resources on media and technology to the Spanish-speaking community. This comprehensive suite of Spanish-language resources includes videos, parent tip sheets and more.
