FlixLatino, the US Hispanic subscription video on demand (SVOD) service of SOMOS Next, is now available as an à la carte channel on Sling TV. Sling TV combines linear channels with on-demand content for the Latino market of the United States and Puerto Rico. Sling TV customers will now have the option to purchase FlixLatino as a standalone channel or as an addition to Sling’s base subscription services, and will have direct access to the best selection of movies, series and documentaries in Spanish for the price of $3 per month.
The addition of FlixLatino to Sling TV will strengthen the platform’s current Spanish-language content offering, satisfying the entertainment needs of Spanish language speaking communities in the U.S. (a market characterized by high consumption of online services). “Streaming” options, very popular with the new generation, offer flexibility as to when and where to enjoy the content, usually at a lower price when compared to traditional pay television. The changing habits of technology have created these new segments, and FlixLatino is the best option for those seeking quality Spanish content.
Luis Guillermo Villanueva, COO of SOMOS Next, expressed his satisfaction: “By teaming up with Sling TV, FlixLatino continues to enhance the growth we have experienced since our launch, with this leading online entertainment service. We have high expectations for our service and for this launch. Our idea has always been to deliver the best selection of audio visual content in Spanish, in high-definition, at a very modest price. Our catalog represents the top of contemporary cinema originally produced in Spanish, together with prestigious series and interesting documentaries. Making it accessible and available from a technological perspective and price point is what our audience demands and deserves. In terms of technology and features, we compete with the best the market has to offer.”
