Language Resource Bias

So I just signed up at www.spanishhour.com and intend to go through their 50 day course. Having spent the last couple of hours on the site, for $9.99 a month I actually think it's an incredible deal.

However, there is one thing that concerns me. Nowhere does it say that it focuses primarily on Spain Spanish or Latin American Spanish, but after noticing a few details like the accent the speakers have on a few words and the use of coche instead of carro, it appears that the focus is on Spain's version of the language. Nevertheless, I ASSUME--just because it's sensible--that they have designed the course to be as universal as possible. But who knows at this point.

My primary interest, however, is on Latin American Spanish. So, for those who have more experience than I do, how concerned should I be?
