If you ask, you shall receive - starting September 17, 2008, DISH Network is offering exclusive Pay-Per-View (PPV) coverage of the sixth and final season of the hit Mexican reality competition show “La Academia.” For only $14.99, DISH Network subscribers can get a full season of the most complete, behind-the-scenes coverage of this exciting contest. For those who are unfamiliar, “La Academia” is a talent competition reality show, in which 14-21 young people are selected to live together and spend their days taking classes in singing, dancing, and acting. Each Sunday night they perform songs in a three-hour concert for a live studio audience. One contestant is eliminated each week until just a few remain to compete for the grand prize – 3 million Mexican pesos. Viewers call in each week to vote for their favorite performer. On the December 21 series finale, six generations of contestants will join together on stage to close the show. “La Academia” PPV offers behind-the-scenes programming 24-hours a day, Monday through Friday. Subscribers to DishLATINO and higher or the DishLATINO Bonus Pack can watch the regular Sunday night broadcast of “La Academia” on Azteca America, channel 825.
