Spanish-Language Movie Streaming Service Goes Solo1 Feb, 2017 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Miami-based ‘FlixLatino Go’ expands beyond YouTube to standalone access for $2.99 monthly
Targeting the domestic Hispanic market and Puerto Rico, Miami-based subscription streaming video service FlixLatino Go broadens reach beyond YouTube.
The $2.99 monthly service offering 200 updated titles is now available through its website, , apps for iOS and Android devices, and Roku, among other streaming media platforms.
The SVOD service streams Spanish-language contemporary theatrical releases in HD from Mexico, Spain, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina and Chile, among others, in all genres, including action, drama, romance, comedy, horror and suspense.
“The Latin community needs an option to enjoy the best contemporary Spanish-language movies at a reasonable price,” Luis Guillermo Villanueva, COO of Somos Next, a wholly owned subsidiary of SomosTV LLC, said in a statement.
Launched a year ago on YouTube Channels, FlixLatino Go developed enough of a fan base to justify expanding beyond Google’s social media’s over-the-top subscription streaming platform.
"We [were] thrilled with the response from the market,” Villanueva said.
FlixLatino Go is the not the first SVOD service offering Spanish-language content. Netflix began offering Spanish-language content in 2011, the same time Hulu Latino launched. Amazon Prime Video also offers Spanish fare.
Villanueva says Latinos are film fanatics, technology lovers and an important component of the coveted millennial market, consuming entertainment through connected devices at a high volume.
“We are giving Latinos a product that is highly competitive when it comes to price with the options and tools that can be found in the most popular applications in the market.”
