Can anyone help me to identify this font? It's used in TCM subtitles for Latin-American TV.

Check out to match fonts. – ckpepper02 Nov 4 '13 at 19:32
If I post this is because what the font dosn't work, but thanks for the suggest. – Jose Carlos Alfaro Nov 4 '13 at 21:38

WhatTheFont didn't work for me, and it's neither of these, but I can think of two fonts that might help if you are looking for something readable and subtitle-like:

Thanks so much is the second font "trebuchet" – Jose Carlos Alfaro Nov 4 '13 at 21:38
It's neither of these, but Trebuchet is in the ballpark if 'close enough' will work. – DA01 Nov 4 '13 at 22:46

It's either Lucida Sans or Optima. A lower-case g or capital M in the example would have clinched it. Lucida's g is single-storey; Optima's is two-storey. Optima's M is slightly splayed; Lucida's is not.

Lucida Sans: Lucida Sans example

Optima: Optima example
