It is the third most watched channel in the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires. Its programming alternates between current affairs and live news shows. In 2018 América TV received from the national government USD 3,762,967.49 of official advertising, an amount close to that provided to leading channels.
In 2013 the channel made a difference when it launched a current affairs show entitled Intratables. Its format was innovative, since it features a discussion on the most pressing items on the political agenda at prime time, while following an informal dynamic and using sensationalist language, similar to tabloid television. The recipe worked and it has shaped the style of other the channel’s shows. Currently, only the evening edition of the news bulletin, with a traditional format, is broadcasted.
