HBO Ole logo

HBO OLÉ, a Spanish-language "Movie Channel" of the HBO Cable network operating in the Caribbean, and Central and South America, acquired the rights to air the 1996 TV Movie. The film was promoted as "Dr Who" rather than "Dr Misterio".

Of note, in some of these countries the TV Movie had previously been available a few years earlier as a subtitled VHS tape. (The film had also apparently aired on TV in Argentina in early 1997, but we have been unable to verify this.)

(See also HBO Max.)

Four months later, the film returned for four more screenings during July, with the first of these on HBO Olé 2 (and therefore available in only some countries?). The other three (and a final outing in October) were back on the main channel. (Only the Argentina and Mexico "East" / "West" times - with now only two hours difference - are listed.)

All these broadcasts were in English with Spanish subtitles. (Although Dutch is the official language of Aruba, Curaçao and Suriname, English and Spanish could also be spoken in these countries.)


Listings

Our information regarding HBO Olé came from: HBO OLE on REC ARTS DR WHO

The Spanish language newspaper El Nuevo Herald - which had an edition published in Miami Florida - has listings for OLE, but these only cover 7pm to 11pm so the early morning and late evening screenings of the TV Movie don't appear; also, the paper only uses the generic term "Película" for its "film" listings, so only the 27 February 1999 issue [see clipping above] had an unidentified film from 9pm to 10.30pm that fitted within the above timeslots (adjusted for the US time zones) on that date.
