AOL: South Of The Border Means $$$


AOL, of course, recently moved their corporate offices to New York. The next step in the ailing company’s quest to retool their mission for the post-Gmail/Gchat world?

Enter AOL Mexico. The new web site, which launched this past week, was launched in collaboration with Mexican phone company Alestra and wire service Grupo Editorial Expansion (providing content, natch). AOL’s distribution partnership with HP will also continue into Mexico.

As for AOL Mexico, it’s like domestic AOL… Only with plenty of soccer content and telenovelas. Per the press release that just landed in our inbox:

“One major goal is to connect people and their passions. No matter if they’re fans of futbol, Kate del Castillo or Mana, we want to make it easy for our users to find whatever they’re looking for all in one place,” said Ralph Rivera, Vice President and General Manager for Latin America. “By offering content and distribution from world-class partners such as Alestra Telco, Grupo Editorial Expansion and HP, we’re well positioned to achieve this goal.”
